Question about Dymo LetraTag 2000 Printer

Open Question

My Dymo Letratag 2000 is not printing properly. The label comes out hazy, as if it needs replacement ink. I haven't been able to find an ink replacement - do I need to purchase a whole new unit, replace batteries? Help!

Here is the Dymo site for this issue:

Poor Print Quality from Electronic Labelmaker trnsp.gif Question I have an electronic labelmaker that is printing poorly. The print on the label is either very light, incomplete, or striped. How can I resolve this?
trnsp.gif Answer Proceed with the solutions listed below if you have an electronic labelmaker. If you have a LabelWriter printer that is printing poorly, click here.
Solution 1:
Replace the existing batteries with a new/fresh set of alkaline batteries. The print head requires a significant amount of battery power to ensure proper printing on the label. Light print on the label may be an indication that the batteries need to be replaced.
Solution 2:
Replace the existing tape cassette with a new tape cassette. Light printing may be an indication of bad label stock.
Solution 3:
Using the special brush supplied with your labelmaker (located on the inside cover of the cassette compartment) or a cotton swab with a soft solvent (e.g. rubbing alcohol), carefully clean the transporter roller and print head. Dust, dirt, or glue may accumulate on the rubber transport roller or print head inside the cassette compartment and adversely affect print quality.
If the solutions listed above do not resolve the problem, please contact DYMO Technical Support to obtain a Return Material Authorization (RMA) Number.

-hope this helps.

You need to clean the printhead with q-tips dipped in alcohol.

Dymo don't do spare parts for their machines - because most of them are so cheap now that it's much cheaper to buy a new one than it is to repair them.

This is especially so for the LetraTAG machines which are the cheapest in the Dymo label maker range.

For that price it's a no-brainer - if the display is unreadable just buy a new one!

How do i change the ink in my dymo letratag


There is no ink in thermal printers. You simply need a new cassette to print more labels.

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 the Dymo LetraTag but not the thermal one. The ink seems to be running low. How do I refill it??


Hi,
They're *all* thermal ones, none of the dymo printers use ink. When the print is fading it means the batteries are running out, so just replace them!
See the manual here on the Dymo Manuals and Drivers page.

I have the dymo letratag. no letters come out on the paper. I can not find anywhere to put any ink.


LetraTag label makers 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.

Dymo LetraTag 2000 hand held printer


This Unit does NOT take ink. That is one of it's "benefits." Since it uses heat transfer, im thinking it either needs new batteries, or it's heat device has been expended. This is a cheap little maker, so it isnt made to handle the abuse of an office: it's meant for a label from week to week. If you went on a label spree all over the house, you killed it. Hope this helps!
