    I have the same problem. The funny thing is, another PC had the same problem too, but somehow cleared up and is working now. I tried to do everything I did on that PC to this PC and it's just not working.



    What I did on the other made no sense. I unistalled, reinstalled, and restarted before trying to print. It came back up and it worked. But that solution is not working on this printer.

    I have experienced the same problem on two different PCs. Both running Windows XP. On one I tried uninstalling then downloading the latest drivers and re-installing, but still does not work.

  • Anonymous Oct 06, 2008

    My Dymo message says "no Labelwriter found"... I have changed USB cables. Reinstalled new software. Tried to do firmware update... but can't since "no Labelwriter is found". I've plugged and unplugged. I've renamed escal.bmp.



    The Dymo functions.. loads paper, lights are on and unit function seem normal...



    Any Help?

    Installed Dymo 400. Restarted computer and when I send a lambel request, there is 1 in the queue already & it errored out.

    Prints fine but the display is where you can't hardly make out the letters. I don't use this that much. Last time I used it it worked fine. I get it out to use it and it's this way. I've replaced the batteries twice.

I pulled the front cover off my Dymo twin turbo label writer and that stopped my jamming error issues. If your not able to print with the cover on try removing the front cover and then print. I have been unable to get it working after putting the cover off so I am now running the machine full time without the front cover. Dust is an issue and I don't have the tear teeth but atleast I can still print!

So I have tried to unplug the labelwriter before and after installing the driver, I have tried unplugging the computer before and after installing the driver, I have tried changing labelmakers to an identical one, changed cables, changed adapters, changed computers(which works but I need to get it working on the original computer) and it always prints 1 label than comes up with error-printer message over and over... very frustrated!

A combination of all of the above solutions fixed the problem so, thanks all. We had one in our office that worked perfectly right out of the box. We then shipped it to another office because they needed it more than we did. Shortly after we ended up buying another one which gave us the grief. The new one worked fine on a laptop with a clean install of XP, on the other two machines which had the drivers and software previously installed it was nothing but bewildering forehead bruising grief.

Solution #2 WORKED,
You are amazing

Unpluggin and replugging in the machine cleared up my "error printing" also. Thanks for the helpful advice!

Make sure you only have one DYMO Labelwriter printer in "Printers and Faxes". If you have more than one, select the appropriate one from the "Change Printer" option on the "File" menu item in the DYMO Label Software.

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.

DYMO LabelWriter 400 Turbo Installed but gives error message when sending prints


First of all, on Dymos you need to use original Dymo roll,.

Dymo rolls have a tag at the back, non original ones does not have it.

Before reinstalling driver you also need to run the dymo uninstaller utility that you find at Dymo website.

I will post the links for download.

My dymo Labelpoint 100 won't print


Check the rubber wheel in the cassette compartment to see if there is any debris there. To manually re-set your printer, remove the batteries and press On/Off 20 times. If no avail, give us a call (contacts are on dymo.com).

How to reset the dymo labelwriter 400 printer


Make sure you use original DYMO paper, otherwise the machine may be confused as to where to begin and stop. Also, cleaning the print head is a good idea if you have had the printer for a while.

The latest software is crucial. Right now it is version 8.4.2, you can see which one you have by clicking on Help > About DYMO Label.

If the above does not help, you are welcome to contact the DYMO help desk (dymo.com and select your country).

OUR DYMO LABELWRITER TWIN TURBO JUST STOPPED PRINTING--


OK! The first time you tried to print ON THE LEFT SIDE, without anymore labels there, there was a "pending" error message in the print queue. This typically cuts off all furtther printing, as all subsequent requests are "behind" it in order or priority.

To fix this, open the Dymo Labelwriter "Printer" dialog box (double-click it on the tray or go to "start / control panel / printer and faxes" - then double-click on "DYMO LabelWriter Twin Turbo". Once open, you'll see a list of "failed" print requests. Somewhere in there you'll find the one with the "laserwriter output" out of paper message. Select that and cancel or delete it.

If this was the problem, all your attempts will now print (make sure you have enough postage paper in, and you'll have extras you can use, I'm sure!

Hope this helps.

Dymo tag qx50 gives me error 6 message


You can get the book from this website. http://global.dymo.com/enUS/TechSupport/default.html ... the error you get is because you selected a font that can not do 2 lines... in other words its to big. Turn off the 2 line option and it will print. Or select a different font.

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
