INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing the P-touch 1950!
Your new P-touch will allow you to create labels for any need. Its versatility enables you to
design custom labels by choosing from a variety of frame designs and from many characters
sizes and styles. In addition, the four tape widths (6 mm, 9 mm, 12 mm and 18 mm) and
variety of tape colours allow you to print personalised labels, useful for colour-coded filing.
You no longer have to worry about urgent tasks that require professional printing. In the office,
the factory, the lab and the home, the quality and performance of the P-touch 1950 makes it
an extremely practical machine.
Finally, as you may want to refer to this User’s Guide occasionally, we suggest that you keep it
in a handy place.

●
•
Use only Brother TZ tapes with this machine. Do not use tapes that do not have the
mark.
Do not pull on the tape being fed from the P-touch. This may damage the tape cassette.
Do not use the machine in dusty places, and keep it out of both direct sunlight and rain.
Do not expose the machine to high temperatures or high humidity. Never leave it on the
dashboard or in the back of your car.
Do not leave any rubber or vinyl on the machine for an extended period of time. Doing
so may cause staining.
Do not clean the machine with alcohol or other organic solvents. Use a soft, dry cloth
only.
Do not put any foreign objects into or anything on the machine.
To avoid injuries, do not touch the cutter’s edge.
Use only the AC adaptor (model H/H1) designed exclusively for this machine. Use of
any other adaptor may void the warranty.
Do not try to disassemble the AC adaptor.
When the machine is not being used for a long period of time and it is not necessary to
keep the text files stored in the memory, disconnect the AC adaptor, and remove the batteries to prevent them from leaking and damaging the machine.
When the AC adaptor is connected, unplugging the adaptor from the electrical outlet
before unplugging it from the machine can delete all text files in the memory, even if batteries are installed.
Use six AA alkaline batteries in this machine.
BATTERIES
This portable machine can be used anywhere by installing six (6) AA alkaline batteries. When
you change the batteries, always replace all six at the same time.
To change the batteries:
Remove the battery compartment cover on the back of the machine.
If batteries are already installed, remove them.
Insert six new AA alkaline batteries, making sure that their poles point in the correct
direction.
4 Attach the battery compartment cover.

☞
Be sure to insert the new batteries within five minutes of removing the old ones,
otherwise the text shown in the display and any text files stored in the memory will
be lost (unless the machine is plugged into an AC outlet with the AC adaptor).
Remove the batteries and disconnect the AC adaptor if you do not intend to use this
machine for an extended period of time. When the power is disconnected, all text
shown in the display and stored in the memory will be lost.
If the batteries are not installed with their positive and negative poles pointing in
the correct direction, the batteries may leak, overheat or explode, or the print head
may overheat.
AC ADAPTOR
The AC adaptor (model H/H1) allows you to use this machine wherever there is an electrical
outlet.
To connect the AC adaptor:
1
2
4
Insert the plug on the adaptor cord into the connector marked DC IN 9.5V on the right
side of the machine.
Insert the plug on the adaptor into the nearest standard electrical outlet.
☞
Only use the AC adaptor designed exclusively for this machine.
Remove the batteries and disconnect the AC adaptor if you do not intend to use this
machine for an extended period of time. When the power is disconnected, all text
shown in the display and stored in the memory will be lost.
When the AC adaptor is connected, unplugging the adaptor from the electrical outlet before unplugging it from the machine can delete all text files in the memory,
even if batteries are installed.
TAPE CASSETTE
TZ tape cassettes are available for this machine in a wide variety of colours and sizes. It is possible to make distinctive colour-coded and stylised labels.
In addition, this machine has been designed to allow you to change the tape cassettes quickly
and easily.
To change the tape cassette:
1 Lift open the tape compartment cover. The installed cassette is also released.
2 If a tape cassette is already installed, remove it by pulling it straight up.
3 If the ink ribbon in the tape cassette to be installed is loose, use your finger to wind the
toothed wheel in the direction of the arrow on the cassette until there is no slack in the
ribbon.
Also, make sure that the end of the tape feeds under the tape guides.
☞
If you are using a new tape cassette provided with a stopper, be sure to remove the
stopper.
4 Insert the tape cassette firmly into the tape compartment, making sure that the entire back
of the cassette touches the bottom of the compartment.
☞
When inserting the tape cassette, make sure that the inner ribbon does not catch on
the corner of the metal guide.
5 Close the compartment cover, then turn on the machine if it is off.
6 Hold down c and press _ once to advance the tape and remove any slack.
☞
This machine does not support stamp tapes (SK-MB/SH-MB).

ATTACHING LABELS
LAMINATED TAPE
The enclosed stick enables you to easily remove the backing from labels printed on laminated
tapes.
1 Hold the tape in your left hand, with the printed surface facing up, and hold the stick in
your right hand.
2 Pass the tape halfway through the long narrow hole in the stick.
3 Turn the stick three-quarters of a turn towards you and pull the stick away from you as
shown below.
4 Peel off the label backing.
A
D
BC
EF
GH
AB
CD
EF
Some tapes can be folded in half so that the inside edges of the two backing pieces come off
the label, enabling the backing to be peeled off easily.
FABRIC TAPE
Fabric tape is used to attach a piece of fabric printed with your text onto garments using an
iron. After printing the text onto fabric tape and cutting off the label using scissors, place the
label on an ironed garment at the location where you wish to attach it in such a way that the
printed text can be read correctly. Cover the label with another piece of cloth and use an iron
set to a medium-high temperature (160 to 180 °C) to press down firmly for 15 to 30 seconds.
For more details, refer to the instructions included with the fabric tape cassette.
6
PRINT HEAD & ROLLERS
Occasionally, specks of dust or dirt become attached to the machine’s print head and rollers.
This is particularly likely when you are using the unit outdoors or in a very dusty environment.
If a section of the print head is covered with dust, a blank horizontal streak may appear
through the label text. Therefore, as with a tape recorder, the machine’s print head may need
to be cleaned from time to time.
To clean the print head and rollers:
Turn off the machine. Remove the batteries and disconnect the AC adaptor.
Open the tape compartment cover, then remove the tape cassette if one is installed. The
print head and rollers are located in the tape compartment.
3 Print head: Use a dry cotton swab to gently wipe the print head with an up-and-down
motion.
Rollers: Use a dry cotton swab to wipe each roller with an up-and-down motion while
rotating them with your finger.
4 Install a tape cassette, close the tape compartment cover, and then try printing again.
5 If a blank streak still appears in the label, repeat steps 1 to 4.
If none of the above works, contact your service representative.

With the AUTO setting selected and 12-mm- or 18-mm-wide tape installed, text consisting of just one line of only uppercase letters (and no accented characters) will be printed
with a character size slightly larger than a similar sentence also containing lowercase
letters (i.e., 29 points for 12-mm-wide tape and 52 points for 18-mm-wide tape).

MEMORY FUNCTIONS
You can use the memory to store your most frequently used text files. The text remains in the
memory, along with its formatting, even after all characters are removed from the display
using the Clear function (holding down c and pressing * ).
When each file is stored, it is given a number to make recalling it easier. Up to 10 text files or
approximately 300 characters can be stored in the memory. Each stored text file can have a
maximum of 91 characters.
Since a copy of the stored text file is recalled when the Recall function is used, the text can be
edited or printed without changing the originally stored file. When a file is no longer needed
or more space is necessary, the Memory delete function can be used to delete it.
☞ When inserting new batteries, be sure to insert the new ones within five minutes of
removing the old ones, otherwise any text files stored in the memory will be lost (unless
the machine is plugged into an electrical outlet with the AC adaptor).
