There is an adhesive label on the top of the motor.

There are two very small hex nuts that hold the handle tight against the motor assembly. You can take a sharp single edge razor blade and lift the adhesive label from the motor on either side, the left or the right just far enough to expose the hex nuts. Use a small 9mm socket to loosen the hex nuts enough to slide the cover out. Retighten the hex nuts. Use a strong glue like Gorilla glue to reattach the label.
I sewed some "1-inch" wide elestic straps on each end to the cover to prevent it from sliding....that was over ten years ago and it works great.

The cutting bade is getting stuck

Either, the blade has a lot of scraps of paper jammed under it, or the blade is slightly bent (usually caused by people forcing the lid open because the blade remained 'out'). The safe way to get the blade back in is to slide the front panel down and move the little wheel until the traingle appears in the window.  Or it could be a faulty micro switch which turns the motor on and off, the cutting mechanisms are very fiddly though and have some minute screws which are hard to get back in. The microswitches have to be soldered on also. If paper isn't the cause it would seek to get it repaired professionally.

Too much lead on each label. Wasting tape. How do you adjust?

You can't adjust the lead since it is just the tape from the printhead to the cutter, the best way to save is to print several labels without cutting and use scissors to cut them apart after all are done. Otherwise it will advance to cut each time and leave the blank space from the head to the cutter blade.

Labels only jam when printing from file

I cannnnoooooottt believe what I am reading! If you are going to use labels on a laserjet, you need to get thermal labels! The other cheap labels are made for inkjets, matric, or daisywheel printers. The laserjets have heat rollers that will melt plastic. It will melt the gum on the non thermal labels and get them everywhere!!

  1. Try just storing your labels in a cool dry place before using them. Peeling labels are usually a sign the glue is poor or weak.
  2. When tearing you labels off, feed them out before tearing them off, then hit the auto-align. See if that helps it.
  3. Try pushing a normal playing card under the metal cutter that tears the labels and pull it up and through the front to bend the blade slightly outward. This will hopefully allow the labels to pass underneath.

Does not cut through the tape

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?
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

DVD label label inner ring or center portion

If the center pops out you should pop it out. This labels are a bad idea in most cases and cause more harm than benefit. They come loose and get jammed. If its important to you buy a Lightscribe burner and DVDS.
