Dymo LabelWriter 450 Twin Turbo - Until recently worked fine from both sides. Suddenly, no longer printing from left - prints half a label, then stops, then error message says Out of Paper, the blue light...


See if it still happens using a fresh label roll. From the Dymo 450 User Guide the common causes of poor print quality issues.

Poor print quality is most frequently caused by one of the following:
• An old roll of labels
• Labels made by a manufacturer other than DYMO
• Labels where the thermal coating has been compromised
• A dirty print head
First, make sure you are using DYMO-branded labels. Do not use third-party labels because the thermal coating on other labels has a different sensitivity than DYMO-branded labels. Also, the perforated holes between the labels made by other manufacturers are frequently not detectable by LabelWriter printers.
If the print quality becomes faint, small dots of white appear scattered through the printed characters, or light and dark patches of printing appear, you are probably using a faulty roll of labels. Try using a different roll from a fresh box. If the second roll prints correctly, the problem is with the first roll of labels.
Another possibility is that the LabelWriter print head needs cleaning. Every LabelWriter printer comes with a cleaning card. See "Caring for Your Printer" on page 17 for information about the
LabelWriter cleaning card.

Printer prints faint labels


Hi. Thanks for your question

Print fainting could be caused by number of reasons. First think to check is ink roll. Replacing with new one would get this out of the way. If it still faints next thing I would do is once you opened the cover try and clean the print head and any visible rollers underneath the labels. Print heads can be cleaned with any alcohol solution. Best would be some kind of electronics cleaning solution. next thing to check would be labels themselves. It happened to me that labels where simply not very well finished and ink would not stick to them. Try roll of labels from other box you may have. If this all failed and your printer still faints labels that it never used to it could be the worse. Your print head may need replacing although this is very unusual for them to fail in this way.
I hope this helped you. Please don't hesitate to come back and ask more questions if this is needed. I've worked with thermal printers for 7 years now and I am sure we can find some solution to your problem.
Thanks for using FixYa

My printer is only printing a faint mark on the label.


You need to use or order the zebra thermal printer cleaner. It is necessary to use these cleaners every few months.
