Problem feeding 9m tape in Dymo 1895

I have an old manual model Dymo (Hobbyist 1895) but I can not get 9mm (3/8'') label tapes to feed through. It will feed the tape only if I cut it to 1/4'' (6.4mm) strips. The user guide ( refers to a white button allowing the width to be set but I cannot find any such button! Can anyone tell me how to change my Dymo machine so it can accept 9mm tape? Thank you!

    Thanks Harvissa,
    I definitely don't have an adjusting button, I even took the whole thing apart to have a look at inner workings. I have accepted that mine feeds only 1/4 inch tape!

I have one of these and there is a white sliding button on one of the broad sides of the labelmaker. It slides from 3/8 inch to 1/4 inch. It is located toward the top right. It's NOT the side with the letter wheel but the opposite side. If yours doesn't have t his button, it probably won't take two sizes of tape. (But I'd be surprised if it didn't have the button.) Hope you find it.

My Dymo 210D will not feed the tape. The little dealy thing goes around, but the tape doesn't feed.

My works Dymo LabelMANAGER 210D broke down because of a weak construction. The tape cartridge door pulls via a spring the print head towards the roller. Its plastic lever couldn't handle the strain. I repaired it with a peace of locking wire, as you can see on the picture. Greetzzzzz Arno

I am trying to load a new roll of labeling tape into the Dymo Organizer 1610. But the tape doesn't advance properly into the front part of the machine that does the printing.

Before inserting the tape into the feed mechanism, bend the last 1/8 inch of the tape upward at a slight angle. This will insure that the tape feeds properly. I just learned this by trial and error.

When typing the print is faded

Dymo LetraTAGs are thermal printers, so they don't use ink - just batteries and LetraTAG tapes.
When the print starts to fade it's time to put new batteries in. When the batteries are running out the text fades first even when the motor is still feeding tape.

I don't know if mine is thermal or not. But, I need ink and don't know where to replace it

Dymo Letratags are thermal printers, so they don't use ink - just batteries and LetraTAG tapes.
When the batteries are running out the text fades first even when the motor is still feeding tape, so change the batteries!

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.

Hi I'm wondering if the Dymo pocket will take a tape, so that I can iron labels on to clothing or even be stitched on. If so what would the cassette be called. Thanks

The Dymo label printer capable of printing iron on tape is the Dymo Letratag. There are a couple of model printers

Dymo Letratag - handheld model
Dymo Letratag - desktop model with qwerty keyboard

and the Dymo 18771 Letratag iron on tape is the tape cartridge available.

I took out the tape D1 label cassette for the DYMO LabelManager 210D to replace with a new one - "DYMO D1 Label Cassette" - and a black piece broke/came out with the catridge. I don't know where this...

I know this is too late for the psalter29, but here it is for others with the question. This piece is a cleaning tool. It is stored in the lid to the tape door. There is a small bar in the lid. The slot on the tool slides over the bar in the lid. The soft yellow pad should push down on the tape when the lid is closed. It is a cleaning tool for the print head. The user guide says "gently wipe the pad across the print head". The device should still work without the tool.

Print Problem?

There are two small "hooks" that feed the tape through on the tape cartridge. Make sure the tape is fed through both hooks.
