How old is your Brother label maker?
Hi yes I used to repair them in bulk.
And yes there is timing involved.
It is extremely important that the gears connected internally are timed as that controls all operations. It sounds as if you may have removed one and mis aligned it, or possible it stripped one or jumped a tooth or even a few.
Did you hear any abnormal clicking after you reassembled the unit?
Or did you not touch any of the gearing?
Hi thats great!
Yes the cutter needs to be to the left depending on how your looking at it.
Other wise it can damage the gears that operate that part.
Unfortunately I cant tell if the other gears have moved. Its not likely the gears slipped out of position since you didn't hear any strange clicking sounds.
So its now trial and error, but you should get it in one or two tries. try it to the left, and then to the right if that doesn't work. Also, some had a make inside to align the cutter blade. Look also for that.
In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.
