Question about Dymo LabelWriter 400 Thermal Printer
Disconnecting power and re-connecting will work, but only temporarily.
In order to fix, you need to upgrade the printers firmware...

Yeah so i called support and then they give you some bs other support number. anyway, i was having the same problem as you all. what you need to do is go to printers and faxers, right click on the dymo printer and go to properties. click on the ports tab. if the bidirectional support checkbox is checked at the bottom, that's your problem. just uncheck that little box and it click apply. it should fix everything. print a test page to confirm. it will print like half of the windows logo. this means "problem solved."

Well, I just tried what Circus suggested, the labels are advancing but not printing :(

What the poster "Circus" said is correct after following those instructions the labelwriter worked like a charm

I had the same problem which can be fixed by unplugging the printer from the power for 10 seconds and plug back in. However it will potentnialyl do it again, you need to contact Dymo for the new driver.
