The labeller says "Error1" when I press print. I have changed batteries. Not sure what the problem is?


Error 1 indicates a tape jam or low battery. To resolve, try removing the cassette and clearing the tape or replacing the battery.

Paper won't feed into printer


I have taken a piece of cardboard, like the ones you get with a new shirt, size it to 8.5 x 11, and tell the printer to print a test page. hand feed the cardboard thru, and most times it will clean out the residual paper pieces stuck in the internal rollers. I have used this method several times and was successful 99% of the time. It isn't rocket science, but It may work. You will probably have to push the cardboard thru, but do not force it to much. It will not go thru easily on its own. Just a suggestion.

Purchased lexmark x4270 all in one scanner copy fax product, set up two days ago, will not print. All lights are on, when i try to print from computer, paper goes thru but no info prints. HELP!!!!!!


If the unit is new, look for anything that may have been placed in
or around the carriage to protect it during shipping. Also the tape
across the ink cartridge may still be in place. If so, pull out the cartridge
and remove the tape. That's what my prob was when I first got my
all in one.

Epson Stylus 580rx won't identify vellum paper


Ran into the same problem. The problem is that the printer's paper sensor sees through the vellum and therefore doesn't think any paper moved into the print position. To use vellum, fold up 1/4" edge on a standard peice of print paper and place the leading edge of the vellum under the flap. Place the paper and vellum into the printer and print. The printer will pull in the paper and the vellum together. Make the paper fold tight and straight to prevent jamming. You will need to feed one sheet at a time. Also the Epson inks take a long time to dry on vellum. I let mine dry overnight.

Does not print


1. Turn off the printer.
2. Turn it over and remove the battery cover.
3. Looking above the batteries, you will see a square opening into the upper part of the printer. In that opening you will see a white gear. Sometimes it seizes. Take a long, thin object (screw driver, letter opener, etc) and rotate the gear. It does not matter which way you turn it.
4. Because your range of motion is limited in the small opening, turn the gear in the same direction about 10-12 times so it gets a full revolution.
5. Now turn on your printer and try it again.

Cartridge problems


Clean the heads, printer is not reading new cartridge or refilled cartridge. You may also have a paper jam if alignment is affected. Check for little jams, post back if no go lilacgerry xxx

I was having the exact same problem & had lost my user's manual (you can go on the Dymo.com website to download a replacement). The !!!!!!!!!! display means that there probably is a tape jam. Here's what the manual says:
*!!!!!!in the display indicates that the tape can not be transported *Press any key to return to normal display *Check if there is a tape jam. In that case, life out the cassette and carefully release jammed tape. Cut off excess tape and refit/replace the cassette *If there is no tape jam replace the batteries

No tape icon when the tape is installed


Alot of times dirty tape heads can cause this issue. Try loading a Digital Head Cleaning Cassette into the unit, and let it clean the heads. Many times this will solve the problem. Also, make sure it's not the 'wet-type' cleaners, as this will cause damage.

For the record issue, make sure the tapes do not have the prevent erasure tabs set - this is on the bottom of the tape, and is looks like a tab that says ERASE OFF or SAVE.

Not much else that can cause this issue. Never force the tape into the unit, and never hit the unit to get it to work. If nothing works, then I would suggest taking into a service center for diagnosis.

Hope this helps some.
