Resolution

UPDATED: April 27, 2018
Make sure the correct tapes are installed. Only use the following PB tape rolls:
  • 613-H - Adhesive tape
  • 610-R - Gummed Tape rolls (Connect+ 3000, SendPro P-Series 3000 with the optional tape moistener unit only)

Check for jams in the tape track:

  1. Open the printer cover.
  2. Check the tape track for jams or other obstructions.
  3. (3000 only with tape moistener only) Check that blue sealer lever is in the correct position.
  4. Remove any jams.

If after clearing any jams the tape is still not feeding reload the tape.

  1. Open the printer cover and tape cover.
  2. Hold the blue tape lever and remove the tape.
  3. Make sure the lead edge is straight and insert the tape up to the blue tape lever.
  4. Press Feed Forward at the top of the screen.
