I have been using my Dymo LabelWriter Twin Turbo to print stamps and labels. Suddenly yesterday when I try to print stamps this message comes up: "Dymo Stamps v.1.6.2 has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." I can still print labels but not stamps. Does this just need to be reintalled? Unfortunately I can't find my original install disk.

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.
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...
i HAVE LABEL WRITER 450 TWIN TURBO AND I CAN NOT PRINT RETURN ADDRESS LABELS. i HAVE UNINSTALLED AND INSTALLED AGAIN THAT DOESN'T WORK THE RETURN ADDRESS LABEL IS THERE IT WON'T LET ME TYPE ANYTHING IN THE SPACE PROVIDED IT WAS WORKING FINE THEN THE NEXT DAY IT WAS NOT THANK YOU
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!
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 read 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
Yes, you are indeed doing something wrong. In terms of the "free" electronic postage offer, what you want to sign up for is the "DYMO Stamps" program, offered via endicia (this is different from endicia's other PAID programs...just be aware).
Simply put, just google "dymo stamps" and the first hit will bring you right to the sign-up location you want.
Just to clarify, unless you have a special program I'm not aware of, stamps.com is most definitely NOT free. They require a monthy fee (of course, they do have a free first month if that's what you're talking about). Regardless, stamps.com DOES work with the LabelWriter 400...but just not with the special "Dymo Stamp Labels" (these "stamps" only work with the free monthly servcie I mentioned earlier, "DYMO Stamps"). You can print up postage/labels via stamps.com just fine using the other size 2-part or 3-part labels sold via stamps.com or dymo.com's store.
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.
