It's likely the print head on the labeler is dirty. Get a cotton swab (like a Q-Tip), dip it in rubbing alcohol and clean the moving parts and the print head.

It's time to clean the printhead. Use the procedure from the printer status monitor. Try cleaning several times but beware it will drain some extra ink from the cartridges. If the cleaning process will not increase the quality of print, probably you will need to replace the printhead. Before replacing printhead, remove all the cartridges and verify if all four gaskets (seals) are present on the inner bottom of the printhead. Also remove printhead, clean contacts both on the back of printhead and carriage with isopropyl alcohol. Put back printhead and cartridges and let the printer do its ink system initialization process. Then try to print your labels again. If all those attempts fails, replace printhead.

Does a letratag label maker ever run out of ink


No. As mentioned, it is either the weak batteries or dirty print head.

Replace the batteries and clean the print head to improve the quality. If nothing helps, please contact us directly for repair (see dymo.com for contacts).

I have been using an epson stylus color 880 for years. One day it would not print. Replaced the cartridges and still will not print. It goes through the printing procedures but nothing shows up on...


The print head nozzles may be clogged. From the Utility section found in the EPSON printer driver, clean the print heads by performing a head cleaning followed by printing a nozzle check pattern. A head cleaning and nozzle check must be performed as a cycle. After printing a nozzle check, examine the printed dot pattern. Each staggered horizontal and straight vertical line should be complete, with no gaps in the dot pattern. If there are gaps in the dot pattern, continue with another cycle. Perform up to 3 cycles if necessary. If the nozzle check is not printing completely, and if the head cleanings do not help the nozzle check pattern to print completely, try replacing the ink cartridge. Any ink cartridge installed into the printer must have a blue label on top of it. If the blue label has been removed from the ink cartridge, do not install the cartridge. Using an ink cartridge, which does not have the blue label on it, may damage the printer. Caution: If you have already installed a cartridge which is missing the blue label, or if a previously installed ink cartridge was missing its blue label at the time it was installed, and now head cleanings do not help the nozzle check pattern to print completely, your printer may require service and you should contact the EPSON Connection for further assistance.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

Printer prints faint labels


Hi. Thanks for your question

Print fainting could be caused by number of reasons. First think to check is ink roll. Replacing with new one would get this out of the way. If it still faints next thing I would do is once you opened the cover try and clean the print head and any visible rollers underneath the labels. Print heads can be cleaned with any alcohol solution. Best would be some kind of electronics cleaning solution. next thing to check would be labels themselves. It happened to me that labels where simply not very well finished and ink would not stick to them. Try roll of labels from other box you may have. If this all failed and your printer still faints labels that it never used to it could be the worse. Your print head may need replacing although this is very unusual for them to fail in this way.
I hope this helped you. Please don't hesitate to come back and ask more questions if this is needed. I've worked with thermal printers for 7 years now and I am sure we can find some solution to your problem.
Thanks for using FixYa

What is the life expectency for these? Mine doesn't come on even with the AC plugged in


We've had our Dymo 330 Turbo for years and still use it daily to print all our address labels - never had a problem with it. They come with a 3 year warranty, so I guess Dymo thinks they're going to last at least that long.

If the power supply has had it you can get a replacement power adapter but if the machine has had it then time to get a new one I think.

The 300 series was discontinued years ago, and even the 400 series has now been discontinued and replaced by the Labelwriter 450 series.

Ac adapter dont work it isnt the laptop itselfs its the ac adapte


Check your mains adapter plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.
The adapter is a sealed unit and is very difficult to open and repair. Usually you need to replace the power adapter.

Disolved lettering on fornt of LG washer


I have run into the same problem with my LG microwave oven/toaster. The did a poor job protecting the silk screened legends for the controls. I made my own labels. Avery makes label material that you can print on your ink jet printer. It's not crystal clear, but at least I know what button to push. Avery 8665 Clear Full Sheet Labels. Available at Staples and other stores.
