Why my printer is not able to cut recipt


Cutter blade may have some receipt paper jamming its movement. It is not a very powerful motor and easily jammed. Open the top and look closely for little cut pieces of paper. Clear out all the pieces and try to blow it out with canned air. Reboot system and check printer settings to make sure cutting function is set. Give it a try.

How to lubricate a Black & Decker Model BD-s600 paper shredder


    • 1 Turn the paper shredder off and unplug it.
    • 2 Clean out the paper shredder. Make sure the blades are free of paper bits and debris. Remove pieces of paper that are jammed around the blades.
    • 3 Spray the shredder oil through the blade opening or throat of the shredder. Spray it in a stream.
    • 4 Plug the shredder back in and switch the reverse button on. Then run it for 10 to 30 seconds in reverse to allow the blades to be saturated with shredder oil.
    • 5 Put the shredder in forward motion and let it run again to disperse the oil thoroughly to all areas of the cutting blades.
    • 6 Feed a couple pieces of paper through the blades to be shredded and absorb any extra shredding oil.

The cutting bade is getting stuck


Either, the blade has a lot of scraps of paper jammed under it, or the blade is slightly bent (usually caused by people forcing the lid open because the blade remained 'out'). The safe way to get the blade back in is to slide the front panel down and move the little wheel until the traingle appears in the window.  Or it could be a faulty micro switch which turns the motor on and off, the cutting mechanisms are very fiddly though and have some minute screws which are hard to get back in. The microswitches have to be soldered on also. If paper isn't the cause it would seek to get it repaired professionally.

Too much lead on each label. Wasting tape. How do you adjust?


You can't adjust the lead since it is just the tape from the printhead to the cutter, the best way to save is to print several labels without cutting and use scissors to cut them apart after all are done. Otherwise it will advance to cut each time and leave the blank space from the head to the cutter blade.

I have taken the blade out and will (must) sharpen; until and unless I get the part made available. Seems it must be, but I cannot find it.

Does not cut through the tape


Here is what Dymo has to say about this issue:
https://global.dymo.com/enUS/RNW/RNW.html?pg=std_adp.php&p_faqid=68

Here is the text in case the link drops:
Question Why can't I cut the tape after printing a label?
trnsp.gif Answer Every time a label is cut, residue from the label's adhesive remains on the cutter blade. This is a normal occurrence when the LabelMaker is used frequently. It is important to regularly clean the cutter blade in the cassette compartment with either the special brush delivered together with the LabelMaker (located in tape compartment door) or a cotton tip swab and a soft solvent (e.g. alcohol).
If the solution above does not resolve the problem, check for tape path obstructions. If the problem persists, please contact DYMO Technical Support to obtain a Return Material Authorization (RMA) number. To obtain an RMA number, scroll to the top of this page and click on the Ask a Question tab. Make sure to include your full name, address, shipping, and contact information.
