I cannot print and get an error message "Monochrome media is installed." (P-touch Editor for Windows)

If the DK roll installed in the printer does not match the 2-color mode setting in P-touch Editor, printing is not possible, and the following error message appears:

Cannot print


Use the Black/Red on White DK roll for 2-color printing. Do the following:


  1. Click the [Cancel] button to cancel the print job.
  2. Install the Black/Red on White DK roll in the printer.
  3. Make sure the 2-color mode setting in P-touch Editor is set to ON.
  4. Try printing again.
