I get an error saying "The roll of labels or tape inside the machine does not match the one selected in the application." (P-touch Editor 5.0 for Windows)

This error message appears when the roll size of the DK roll installed in the machine is different from the one selected in P-touch Editor.

Solution 2:


  1. Click on Trash button to cancel the print job.
