Not printing dark

My Dymo LabelWriter Turbo is running slow and jerky and not printing dark. Like it is out of ink. Has my printer bit the dust?

...also, this could be related to old or improperly stored thermal label stock--it only has about a 1-year shelf life if not stored properly. Thermal labels lose their sensitivity to heat over time. Try changing out your labels after you use the DYMO cleaning sheet (that came with your label printer or can be purchased on their website) before you trash the printer. :)

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.

Printing error print system exception error


I had this problem with the LabelWriter 450 Turbo and it was a .Net Framework problem.

1. Uninstall the Dymo Label software
2. Click this link to download .Net Framework 4.0 http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=9cfb2d51-5ff4-4491-b0e5-b386f32c0992&displaylang=en
3. Reinstall latest version of your Dymo Label software (w/o printer connected to PC)
4. Reconnect label printer when prompted by installer

This should fix the problem

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.
