Labeling system trouble-shooting

After trying to fix the problem in my labeling system, I found out more. The tape had gotten tangled in the mechanism. Now, the problem lies in the ink ribbon because it won't feed where it's supposed to. Instead, it comes out with the tape and messes up the whole label! Any ideas?

    How do I load the tape?

    The machine gives a message that there's no tape in the machine. The tape is full.

She is referring to the black transfer film underneath the tape. Usually after the image is transferred to the tape the film winds back up inside the cartridge and spools up. What has probably happened is that transfer film has broken much like a cassette tape. Now instead of going back inside the cartridge its winding up everywhere. You can do one of two things: -Get a new cartridge and toss this one. -Pull fresh label and transfer film out from the cartridge and manually feed it through the cassette. Leave about an inch sticking out and make sure that sticks outside the slot where the label normally comes out. Close the case, cut off the excess label material and you?re ready to go. Be advised that on occasion you will have to manually repeat the process but you should be able to use the cartridge now till its empty. Good luck and please don?t forget to rate this post.

I thought the PT65 took a thermal tape that didn't have an ink ribbon. Compare the part number on the tape cassette with the list of compatible types listed in the labeller's instruction manual. Believe the only compatible cartridges are: M-Knnn/B, where NNN is one of 221, 222, 223, 231, 232, 233, 521, 531, 621 or 631, or M-K221S/B or M-K231S/B A.

E-6 is flashing, even after I have removed the tangled thread. What do I do?

try turning off the machine for a few minutes. and see if that clears it
try changing the needle
if the E-6 still keeps flashing then the machine may have to be taken in to be serviced

My thread keeps getting knotted up underneath. I have followed all the trouble shooting procedures and it still won't work.

Usually it is the top threading, tangled thread or a bent needle that causes that problem. You can call Brother at 1-877-276-8437 and maybe they can suggest something else to try.

Tape does not eject

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Please provide me with brand and model no. Maybe it is not finalized or it got shut off during finalizing. It may have got stuck due to loose labels or has tangled itself with the roller. Try FW REW again and again to detangle it. And while doing so if you can gear a different sound then that means the tape is tangled. If you hear a different sound then try to open the tape compartment by force or by unscrewing the compartment.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Bought a Tevion High speed DVD-Maker 2yrs. ago after which my puter went down. Have since gotten new puter and cant get maker to transfer vhs tapes. aM WITHIN THE MIN. REQUIREMENTS and have vista. What can...

Vista has problems with quite a lot of older hardware.
I always install a second operating system XP or 2000 on the computers of my clients when I see that they have older equipment. Even some of the newer stuff won't work with Vista. If I were you, I'd install XP and try it with that because Microsoft probably won't throw in driver support for companies that haven't bribed them to do so yet... :-)
