Most Common FAQs for Brother P-Touch QL550:

Q. My label is getting printed like mirror image. What can I do to avoid this?
A.
To avoid mirror printing, simply click on ‘File’. Then click on ‘Print’. A window will appear. Uncheck the ‘Mirror Printing’ option.

Q. What network protocol does Brother P-Touch QL550 printer support?
A.
TCP/IP protocol is supported by the printer. This is the standard protocol of Microsoft Windows.

Q The machine does not print and the LED lamp flashes when I print using a built-in driver. What can be done?
A.
When you are using Windows ‘built-in’ driver, the Brother P-Touch QL550 Label Tape width installed in the printer cannot be detected correctly. If the tape width is not the same as the one selected in P-touch Editor, the printer will not print. In this case, follow these steps:

  • Before you start printing the labels please make sure that the Brother P-Touch QL550 Label Tape cassette is installed correctly and the tape size inside the printer matches the one selected in P-touch Editor.
  • Use the printer driver for Windows instead of the ‘built-in’ driver so that the printer works correctly.

Q. When I try to use the database function, an application error occurs. What can be done in this case?
A.
This problem arises when the database module, which is used by P-touch Editor, may be damaged or the version of the database engine currently installed may be old. To solve this problem, please download and install the latest versions of Microsoft Data Access Components and Microsoft Jet 4.0 database engine from Microsoft download center.

Q. I get an error saying ‘The roll of labels or tape inside the machine does not match the one selected in the application’. What can be done?
A.
This error message appears when the Brother P-Touch QL550 Label Tape size of the installed in the machine is different from the one selected in P-touch Editor. Two probable solutions to this are:

  1. Check the tape size selected in P-touch Editor and install the correct Brother P-Touch QL550 Label Tape into the machine. Click on ‘Right Arrow’ button.
  2. Click on the button next to ‘Right Arrow’ button, to cancel the print job. Select the Brother P-Touch QL550 Label Tape size in P-touch Editor so that it matches the one installed in the machine and then try printing again.

Q. The message ‘Error message received, Total number of pages exceeds 500.’ is displayed. What should I do?
A.
The Brother P-Touch QL550 printer can print up to 500 labels per job at the maximum. While printing with the copying or numbering function, set the print number to less than 500 sheets. And while printing from database or excel, this error message occurs when trying to print more than 500 records at a time. After this, click the the ‘OK’ button to close the error message and then select ‘Record range’ to limit the range to less than 500 records.

Q. Some parts of the label are not printed, even though it is shown correctly on-screen. Why?
A.
To resolve this problem, check if the setting of ‘Output Directly to Printer Driver’ in the Print dialog box is ON. Some specific computers are unable to achieve the correct printouts when this setting is OFF. If you keep this setting OFF and use the Database Function or numbering print function to print a large number of labels, there may be a long delay before printing starts. For normal use, keep this option ticked.

Q. The Brother P-Touch QL550 Label Tape width cannot be selected. Only standard paper sizes can be selected. Why so?
A.
This problem can occur due to two reasons. First is the printer driver is not correctly installed. To resolve this, be sure to download and install both P-touch Editor and the printer driver, as they are separate files when downloaded from the website. Secondly, the printer may not be the default printer for P-touch Editor. For this, In P-touch Editor, click on ‘File’ and select ‘Printer / Page Setup’ to display the Printer Setup dialog box. Check that your printer is selected. If not, select it and click the ‘Save Current Selection’ button. If your printer is listed under ‘Other Printer’, the printer driver has not been installed correctly. So, install the driver again.
