Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
Is the PT2200 that you have, a Brother Label Maker?
If so, I suspect that the tape advancing mechanism is not advancing the tape sufficiently. The tape in question is the tape that is printed upon, of course. That would make the letters printed upon the tape 'skinnier' and the letters more closely spaced.
How old is the Label Maker in question?
The problem may simply be due to aging and the motor that advances the tape getting weaker... but please confirm as to what PT2200 you have, before I go further. Thanks.
Thanks - it's a Brother machine, that's what I needed to know.
How old is it? measured from date-of-purchase.
