FAQs & Troubleshooting
I want to cancel the
current printing job.
Make sure that the label printer is on, and then lightly press the
Power button.
Troubleshooting (cont)
Problem
The ink ribbon is
separated from the ink
roller.
The label printer stops
while printing a ribbon/
label.
While printing, striped
tape appears.
The ribbon/tape is not cut
automatically.
Printed barcodes or QR
codes cannot be read.
There is approximately
1 in. / 25 mm of blank
space added to the left
margin of each printed
label.
Solution
If the ink ribbon is broken,
replace the ribbon/tape
cassette.
If not, leave the tape uncut and
remove the ribbon/tape
cassette, then wind the loose
ink ribbon back onto the spool.
Spool
Replace the ribbon/tape cassette if striped tape is visible, as this
indicates that you have reached the end of the tape.
The ribbon/tape cassette is empty. Insert a new ribbon/tape
cassette.
Select Auto Cut.
If using ribbon or special tapes, cut the ribbon/tape manually.
