How do I install, load or replace the tape cartridge?

Description of Solution 200000024647

To install tape cartridge:


1.   Remove the back cover by pressing in on the rough area at the top end of the machine and pulling off the back cover.


2.   If a tape cassette is already installed, pull it straight out

and remove the paper tab from the new tape cassette.


Make sure that the end of the tape in the new cassette feeds under the tape guides.


The tape that is provided with the P-touch Home & Hobby is a 13.3" long (4m) starter tape. Tapes available for purchase are 26.2" (8m) long.


3.   Insert the tape cassette, making sure that it clicks into place.

Use only Brother M tapes with this machine.


4.   Attach the back cover by inserting the two hooks on the bottom end of the back cover into the slots on the bottom end of the machine, then pushing down firmly on the cover until it snaps into place.


5.   Feed the tape by holding down SHIFT key and pressing FEED key (Print), then cut the tape by pressing in on the tape cutter button.
