Question about Dymo LabelWriter Thermal Printer

Twin Turbo pushing out a lot of unprinted labels

I've had numerous problems with my Dymo twin turbo printing a label and then pushing out three or four unprinted ones. Sometimes it will push a lot out at the beginning and then print on the fourth or fifth and then push out a lot more empty ones.
I've been on to Dymo tech support who told me to uninstall the printer driver and install a new one 7.8 from their website. I've done that but it's been much worse since then.
Does anyone know how to fix this problem? The machine is used for a charity and we can't afford to keep buying new shipping labels while throwing perfectly good ones away.

    I have the same problem. My printer always prints my label, then prints an extra black one behind it. I then have to open the machine and pull the blank one back through the feed. THEN, most times, once I press the feed button, it starts feeding three blank labels and finishes off by printing the actual text onto the middle of two labels. Weird!!!HELP

    We don't just have a few labels printing blank, we have multiple labels endlessly printing. The only way to stop it is to unplug the power, but when we hook the power back up, it starts to print blanks againg.

The people at Dymo's tech support (1-203-588-2500), told me that the problem is a dirty sensor. If you open the front face of the machine (the part with the words "Dymo Labelwriter Twin Turbo" on it), on the inside (top) you will see the black rollers and a peice that is on top of the roller that is the same color as the face you just removed. That peice can be lifted and underneath it you will see an orange transparent peice. This is the sensor. To clean it, you can either use the cleaner sheets that came with the printer or a business card. You will need to put enough alcohol to make the card damp (but not soaked) and run it through as if it were a label 10 times. This should clean your sensor so that it is able to clearly tell when to stop feeding.

It sounds complicated, but its really not. I hope this helps somebody!!!

Tends to be one of two issues. 1. The labels aren't loaded correctly so they drift a bit. make sure the labels are pushed all the way to the left side of the spool and that the right side of the spool is clamped on tightly. 2. The sensor on the printer is out of alignement somehow. Printers have a 2 year warrantee so repair should be no cost. or your local country support contact.

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.

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.

Consistantly Intermittent Connection Problems

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 They have both the Dymo 30327 and Dymo 30277 labels in a compatible version.
