Why does my Dymo 400 Labelwriter not print unless shut down and rebooted?

    Same problem here. I get the "failed to print" balloon tip after printing on Windows XP SP3. Print jobs stack up in the printer queue with status of "Error -Printing". Labels start printing automatically after I reboot and log back in.

    I am having the same problem. The print jobs stack up and when I pull the power plug out and reinset the printer spits out the last print job.

It could be how you have loaded the labels. If you have loaded the labels and there is a small gap between the spindle and the roll, it will print one label and give a error-printer message and stop working until you unplug it for 30 seconds and plug it back in. I would reload the labels from scratch and ensure there is no gap.

Dymo LabelWriter 400 Turbo/Postage Issue

Yes, you are indeed doing something wrong. In terms of the "free" electronic postage offer, what you want to sign up for is the "DYMO Stamps" program, offered via endicia (this is different from endicia's other PAID programs...just be aware).

Simply put, just google "dymo stamps" and the first hit will bring you right to the sign-up location you want.

Just to clarify, unless you have a special program I'm not aware of, is most definitely NOT free. They require a monthy fee (of course, they do have a free first month if that's what you're talking about). Regardless, DOES work with the LabelWriter 400...but just not with the special "Dymo Stamp Labels" (these "stamps" only work with the free monthly servcie I mentioned earlier, "DYMO Stamps"). You can print up postage/labels via just fine using the other size 2-part or 3-part labels sold via or's store.

good luck!
