Does not cut through the tape

My Letra-Tag does not cut cleanly through the tape. It worked fine until now. Can it be the knife?

Thanks, CL

Here is what Dymo has to say about this issue:

Here is the text in case the link drops:
Question Why can't I cut the tape after printing a label?
Does not cut through the tape - trnsp.gif Answer Every time a label is cut, residue from the label's adhesive remains on the cutter blade. This is a normal occurrence when the LabelMaker is used frequently. It is important to regularly clean the cutter blade in the cassette compartment with either the special brush delivered together with the LabelMaker (located in tape compartment door) or a cotton tip swab and a soft solvent (e.g. alcohol).
If the solution above does not resolve the problem, check for tape path obstructions. If the problem persists, please contact DYMO Technical Support to obtain a Return Material Authorization (RMA) number. To obtain an RMA number, scroll to the top of this page and click on the Ask a Question tab. Make sure to include your full name, address, shipping, and contact information.




-Hope this helps

I am getting error 1 on my dymo letra tag qx 50


Error 1 indicates a tape jam or low battery. To resolve, try removing the cassette and clearing the tape or replacing the battery.

Don't close the back - and press print.... and pull on the tape to help it along.

I have to assume you are pressing the print button. That being the case, either your batteries are weak or the tape is empty or jammed.

I was having the exact same problem & had lost my user's manual (you can go on the Dymo.com website to download a replacement). The !!!!!!!!!! display means that there probably is a tape jam. Here's what the manual says:
*!!!!!!in the display indicates that the tape can not be transported *Press any key to return to normal display *Check if there is a tape jam. In that case, life out the cassette and carefully release jammed tape. Cut off excess tape and refit/replace the cassette *If there is no tape jam replace the batteries

I had the same problem, thinking it needed a new tape, but it was actually just the batteries. I forgot it is not ink based - it is thermal based. It needs lots of power to burn the letters onto the thermal tape, so even though the tape was moving and it sounded like it was working, the thermal head wasn't getting enough power. I changed the six batteries and it is working fine.
hope this helps, even though it's almost a month since you posted it.
