Question about Dymo LabelWriter 400 Turbo Thermal Printer

1 Answer

Consistantly Intermittent Connection Problems

I have a new dymo twin turbo labelwriter. I'm printing to it with custom .net application so I'm using the windows xp print drivers and none of the other dymo software. I print a few hundred file folder size labels a day. A couple times each day, especially likely at daily startup, the printer will go offline. The only way I can fix it is to unplug power to the printer and plug it back in.

Every 3-4 times this happens, windows detects it as a new printer. This creates a new printer named DYMO Labelwriter Twin Turbo (Copy 1) and the old printer no longer functions. Every time this happens I have to reconfigure the new printer with the type of labels loaded on each roll, set the paper layout back to landscape, etc.

The "(Copy 1)" scenario above has happened about 6 times. Three of those times, when I finally got it working again the horizontal positioning of the labels changed. I've had to adjust the "location" I'm sending my print output by as much as 0.4 inches to actually print in the center of the label.

And it jams, but I'm just venting. Anyone else have this printer and similar problems or do I just have a lemon?

If you've tried installing the latest drivers and the problem persists it sounds like you have a lemon. The printers have a 2 yr warranty, so I would contact the retailer you purchased from and replace the printer. If your labels are jamming. Try the compatible File Labels available at LabelValue.com. They have both the Dymo 30327 and Dymo 30277 labels in a compatible version.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: dymo 400 labelwriter does not print unless shut down and rebooted

It could be how you have loaded the labels. If you have loaded the labels and there is a small gap between the spindle and the roll, it will print one label and give a error-printer message and stop working until you unplug it for 30 seconds and plug it back in. I would reload the labels from scratch and ensure there is no gap.

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.

Is this dymo twin turbo labelwriter enabled to connect wirelessly


You can network the labelwriter using the Dymo Network Print Server device, but this is not wireless.

It is possible to connect using 3rd party print servers, but this can be pretty hit and miss. It's possible you would find a 3rd party wireless print server that would work with a labelwriter, but you may have a problem with the twin model - the dymo print server recognises that there are (effetively) 2 printers in one machine, where-as a many 3rd party servers do not.

So it's possible you could find a wireless server for it but it may not allow you to use both rolls...
