Unfortunately, this is usually an indication that the label roll in the printer are too old. This action is by design, compatible labels should have a black rectangle on the reverse side and the Smart Label printer uses the black rectangle to orient the label. This means your Smart Label doesn't think its wasting labels, it's just trying to run through what it considers to be unsuitable labels as fast as it can. If you're only printing one label at a time you can recover some labels by correctly the label's line up after each label you print but there's nothing you can do so that your printer will properly advance its current labels.

Remove the current roll, open a new boxed label roll, remove a sealed roll, cut open the sealed plastic, remove fresh label roll and load it in your Label Printer. Power the label printer back on and press the label advance button, it should correctly line up.

These printers are designed to use only the labels with the ink bar on the back. the ink bar is the guide that tells how much to print.

Can Cymo lables be used in the Smart Label Printer 100


If you mean Dymo labels and if the Dymo labels have a black rectangle on the reverse and if the labels aren't to wide, then the labels should work. You may run into problems with the Label printer advancing too far after printing; unfortunately, you will have to manually re-align the label after printing

Label writer 450 is only printing half a label and then the blue light flashes like it is out of paper. New roll, worked fine before it ran out


Make sure you use genuine DYMO labels, not compatible ones. Also, make sure you select the right size in DYMO Label.

Disconnect the USB cable and the power cable to reset the printer. Check if the roll is loaded properly - the holes between the labels have to be on the left. Connect the power cable. If the blue light is solid, connect the USB cable and try to print.

Check the DYMO Label version (Help > About). If it is below 8.5.0, you have to update it.

After each label I print the printer automatically advances 3/4 of the way through the next label. Is there a setting to stop at the end of each label?


I don't know the particulat incantations for this printer, but it sounds like the "form length" or "label length" is not set correctly. Normally the printer will advance to the beginning of the next label once the printing is complete. Check the menu or setup program for the label length.

Let me know if you can not find this and I'll research the exact commands.

Thanks,
Dan

Label not advancing to tear-off perforation


Try this to have the printer auto-sense the size of the labels:
1. Make sure that printer power is off.
2. Press and hold the feed button.
3. Turn printer power on.
4. When the status light blinks, release
the feed button.
5. The printer advances the media to
measure and verify the length of
individual labels or tags. The printer
then prints a status summary and
remains in diagnostic dump mode.
6. To begin normal operation, tap the
feed button. The printer prints "out of
DUMP" and advances a label.

Advances ticket too far after printing.


your label length is set incorrectly, there are 2 things it could be
1) your software is telling the printer the label length is longer then the current labels, even if the label size is out my a single millimeter the printer will give you this issue of feed an extra label. you need to change this in your software. you can set a label size smaller then the current label size and it will work correctly

2) you software is not setting a label length and so the printer is going off its internal setting, to recalibrate hold feed and power up the printer letting go after the light starts flashing

it is important to note that label roll will change slightly over time so even though you are ordering the same labels as a year ago the manufacturer will have slight changes from batch to batch
