Dymo Letratag Display Screen

When I type something, the first four letters show on screen but the next two don't... eg LETR AG But then they show up again. Print out is no problem but I can't see everything on screen.

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!

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.
Obtaining a Return Material Authorization (RMA) Number:

  • Phone Number
  • Date of Purchase
  • Model Name/Number

-hope this helps.

SOURCE: Does a DYMO Letratag QX50 have a replaceable ink

It is a thermal printer and thus does not use ink.

The most likely cause of poor print quality is low batteries. Replace your batteries or plug in the power adapter.

If this does not help check that the label cassette is in place correctly and that the print head is clean. You could also try a new label cassette.

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!

SOURCE: I have the dymo letratag.

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.

Why do the first to letters and the last letter print funny on my dymo letratag


Not clear what "funny" means in this case. Are the letters unclear? distorted? It may be that the batteries are failing.
