Labelwriter 330 looses power

I relocated this printer 6 months ago and it failed to power up. I took the covers off and probed around and found nothing obviously wrong, so reassembled and viola! it came on.

This week it got bumped and fell approx 8 inches off a wall shelf onto the desk and now it won't power up again. This time I took a meter and checked the power switch and all is well. It's hard to follow the tracings on the circuit board, but I did notice continuity across a component labeled V1 (varistor?). Could this be a problem?

Light is blinking and won't print labelsbet

If you like my solution, please give me 4-thumbs up rating.

Why is the light on the front of my Model 330 LabelWriter blinking?

There are 5 possible reasons for this:
  1. The labels are not left-justified
    • Verify that the labels are left justified and loaded properly in the LabelWriter. Click here for more information on loading the labels in the LabelWriter.
  2. There is paper dust or a piece of a label blocking the sensor
    • Take the roll of labels out of the printer and use the provided cleaning card to clean your unit. Click here for more information on using a DYMO Cleaning Card. You can also use compressed air by blowing some air along the left side of the paper path inside the printer.
  3. The labels you are using do not have the index marks properly cut out between each label
    • If the index holes are not cut cleanly, you may run into this problem. Try a different roll of labels.
  4. You are not using DYMO labels
    • If you are not using DYMO labels (or are unsure whether or not you are), please obtain a roll of DYMO labels and try to print again. DYMO labels are made specifically for our printers.
  5. The photo sensor that reads the index mark has failed
    • If this is the case, the unit will need to come in for repair. Select the Ask A Question tab at the top of this page to contact our Technical Support team. Please include the following information so that we can set up a Return Material Authorization (RMA) for you:
      • Full Name
      • Full Shipping Address (No PO boxes)
      • Phone Number
      • Date of Purchase
      • Model Number (a 5-digit number found on the bottom of your LabelWriter)
      • The 11-digit number under the barcode on the same label
      • Serial Number (located on the bottom of the printer, starting with "S/N" -- it also contains a dash after the first five numbers)
      • If your unit is out of warranty (beyond 2 years from the original date of purchase), please provide us with a method of payment (including expiration date, if using a credit card). The cost to repair your unit is either $75, which includes UPS Ground return shipping, or $90 for UPS Next Day Air return shipping. Please let us know which return method you desire.

Trying to use USB connection. Power good. Program install seems correct. When told to connect USB to computer, nothing happens (no recognition.) Have to cancel out of install. Have checked out supplied...

Following are three possible issues you can easily investigate and correct:

Upgrading DLS or Adding an Additional LabelWriter

A previous LabelWriter printer may still be installed with documents in the print queue. You must delete any documents in the print queue for all previously installed LabelWriter printers before proceeding with the installation.

1.Open the Printers folder. Based on Operating System and system configuration, the Printers folder can be accessed in one of the following ways:
Start > Settings > Printers
Start > Control Panel > Printers & Other Hardware > View installed printers or fax printers
Start > Control Panel > Printers & Faxes

2.Double-click on the LabelWriter printer, the print queue will open.

3.Delete any pending print jobs and close the print queue.

4.Reboot your computer and re-run the DLS installation.

Installing DLS and a LabelWriter for the First Time

Some antivirus or anti-spyware applications may prevent the installation of DLS and the LabelWriter printer. You may have to temporarily disable these applications in order to successfully complete the installation.

1.Restart your computer.

2.After restarting, temporarily disable any antivirus and anti-spyware applications.

3.Install DLS, connect the LabelWriter when prompted during the installation.

4.Once installation has completed, re-enable any antivirus or anti-spyware applications.

DYMO Label Software Fails to Install because Word or Outlook is Running

While installing the DYMO Label Software (DLS), prompted with a message that Word or Outlook is open. How can I resolve this?

1.Exit Word and Outlook.

2.Open Task Manager.

??¦To open Task Manager press Ctrl - Alt - Delete.

3.Click on the Processes tab in Task Manager.

4.Verify that WINWORD.EXE and OUTLOOK.EXE are not running processes. If present, select every instance of WINWORD.EXE and OUTLOOK.EXE and click on End Process.

5.Close Task Manager and reinstall DLS.

I bought a Dymo label printer several months ago and just attempted to set it up for use. The ac adapter shows a blinking green light, however there is no light on the printer, and it does not appear that...

If you only purchased it a few months ago then why not return it...? They generally come with 3 year warranties, so unless you bought it 2nd hand you should be fine...

What is the life expectency for these? Mine doesn't come on even with the AC plugged in

We've had our Dymo 330 Turbo for years and still use it daily to print all our address labels - never had a problem with it. They come with a 3 year warranty, so I guess Dymo thinks they're going to last at least that long.

If the power supply has had it you can get a replacement power adapter but if the machine has had it then time to get a new one I think.

The 300 series was discontinued years ago, and even the 400 series has now been discontinued and replaced by the Labelwriter 450 series.

Won't turn on

The 330 series don't have an on button (they are on all the time, unless you unplug them), so presumably you are saying it is plugged in but the light is not on, the button on the front doesn't respond, and it doesn't print.

I'll assume that you have checked that the power supply is plugged in to a known working power socket and the socket is switched on if applicable (depends on country), and that you have checked the power cable is firmly plugged into the labelwriter.

Check to see if the power supply has an LED on it. If it has but it is NOT lit, and is definately plugged in then it is probably a dead power supply (or possibly a blown fuse).

In this case you can try a replacement power supply: Dymo LabelWriters (2nd item from bottom)

If the LED is lit then it would suggest that the labelwriter is broken.

Only prints on bottom half of label.

Your scanner and thermal printer has got loose connection. Print head also may need cleaning by own system. try from the software.
