Dymo 400 labelwriter does not print unless shut down and rebooted

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.

My Dymo LabelWriter 400 is printing vertically. How do I change it to print horizontally? Thanks


Hi Kaylene, i`ve experience that before.. Just set the print set-up/ preview into horizontal.. The dialog box of print preview will show you the position of your text before printing Dymo Label! goodluck!!

Dymo Labelwriter 400 Won't feed smoothly. Can I clean the rollers?


You probably just need to clean your print head with a cleaning card. One came with your printer, but if you do not have it the cleaning card packs (10) are not expensive and labelvalue.com ships them for free. Labelwriter Cleaning Cards

Quite a lot of the early LW400's didn't ship with the Vista driver/software. You can download the correct Vista driver from here:

DYMO THINKS ITS OUT OF PAPER ....


New versions of the Labelwriter 400 (original and Turbo) do not take Generic Labels. It is an issue with the firmware Dymo have installed - it will only relabelwriter400.jpgad the genuine labels made by Dymo. currently there appears to be no work around to solve this isses.
The Dymo OEM labels have lines print on the back, if you use labels without these lines, the printer gives an "out of paper" error
The only printers in the Dymo Range that will take our generic labels are the Dymo Twin Turbo and the Dymo Duo (both the more expensive from the range).
Dymo have only made this change in the last 6-8 months, old 400's will work with cheaper generic labels

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, stamps.com 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, stamps.com 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 stamps.com just fine using the other size 2-part or 3-part labels sold via stamps.com or dymo.com's store.

good luck!
