Question about Dymo LetraTAG Thermal Label Printer

1 Answer

Labels coming out blank

Recently, the print on the labels has been a little bit blotchy; the letters are faded in places. Now there is nothing showing up on the labels at all once they're printed. I type a word and it shows up on the screen, but when I print it, it comes out blank.

My zebra 105Se keeps printing blank labels.


Do the labels come out right when you print locally? That is the first thing to see. Serial devices over a network are tricky. Baud rate and what to do with CR LF, stop bits, parity etc. need to be right.

Own three CP3525dn's (purchased new). Two have recently begun jamming [fuser wrap] when printing labels. If it doesn't jam then the paper usually "dog ears" coming out. New fuser did not...


Over time, printing labels builds up a light residue of the adhesive (due to heat pressing) used on the labels in the paper path. A thorough cleaning of all paper path parts with alcohol prep pads, or Glass Plus and quality paper towels, will reduce this gum build up.

You should regularly print standard paper jobs on a laser printer that will be printing labels. Rule of thumb is 4:1 - four sheets of regular paper print for each sheet of labels printed. This helps keep the adhesive cleaned out of the paper path.

Patience and a lot of scrubbing should do the trick, though you may have to install a printer maintenance kit early given the issues noted. Printing labels cuts maintenance kit duration in half, at a minimum.

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).

Dymo prints blotchy labels and feeds out many labels after print


Sounds like you have a couple of issues going on...your labels are incompatible or you have an incorrect template selected in the Dymo Software.

Check that the label model matches the template and you are using quality Dymo Labels. Such as the Dymo name brand or the LabelValue brand Dymo labels.

  1. Try just storing your labels in a cool dry place before using them. Peeling labels are usually a sign the glue is poor or weak.
  2. When tearing you labels off, feed them out before tearing them off, then hit the auto-align. See if that helps it.
  3. Try pushing a normal playing card under the metal cutter that tears the labels and pull it up and through the front to bend the blade slightly outward. This will hopefully allow the labels to pass underneath.

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:
