Question about Dymo LabelWriter Thermal Printer

LABELWRITER RUNS THROUGH TOO MANY BLANK LABELS

I have the same issue with our labelwriter. We, too, are nonprofit and cannot afford the added expense of the unused labels. I had stopped using the machine altogether (other than for stamp printouts -never had problems with that part), because of the issue.

In addition, today, I tried to reinsert the label roll so that the machine would print onto the blank labels and instead it printed some funky geometric shapes and line patterns on several more unused labels. I am fed up. Does anyone know a solution???

Merely reboot software and then roll unused labels back on machine. That works for me.

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.

We have recently printed and applied hundreds of asset sticker labels on our Dymo LabelWriter 450 and they have all faded! Is there a solution to this? or is the Dymo LabelWriter only useful for temporary...


LabelWriter labels are sensitive to sunlight. The coating is what allows to burn text onto them because LabelWriters do not use ink.

They are not supposed to fade easily so it may have been an old roll. Please contact our help desk for a resolution (see dymo.com for contacts).

There doesn't seem to be any ink - labels come thru' blank, all connections are good


These Dymo LabelWriters are thermal printers which uses heat to print the labels, not ink. Be sure you are using labels compatible with your Dymo printer.

Dymo 400 labelwriter does not print unless shut down and rebooted


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.

Spits out multiple blank labels and reports a printing error


I just fixed my coworker's Dymo, which had the same problem. I hope this helps: if you've ever fed it labels in the wrong direction (upside down), you may have jammed it and left a piece of a label glued to one or more of the sensors that let the labelmaker know it's finished printing a label.

1. Disconnect your labelmaker
2. Disconnect/remove any unused labels and set them aside.
3. Remove the face plate (with the DYMO LabelWriter 400 logo)
4. Lift the gray plastic lip (labels go under this) and make sure there are no pieces of paper/labels in there.
Once I removed a piece of an old label and put the LabelWriter back together it started working well again.

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

Labels Print Once Then Fail (3.5 X 1)


"The printer will print one label then either push out a half a blank label or several blank labels. At that point the labewriter thinks it's out of paper. I also noticed that the labels tend to slide toward the middle while exiting. After each print I have to pull the labels back in and realign them. Then the process repeats."
This is because you haven't squeezed both sides of the spool to the edges of the label. Without the sides to hold the label in place it is free to slide about on the spool and therefore slides about where the print head and label sensor are. The sensor is on the left, so if it slides towards the middle the sensor can't see the label and reports "out of labels".

See the diagram here for a clear picture of how to correctly load the labels to avoid this problem:
