Dymo 400 Not Printing

I have just successfully installed a new Dymo 400 on my XP system. It won't print. Am I meant to change any settings or should it just print with default settings on installation. I am using standard size labels. Please help.

    Just installed dymo l/writer 400. It printed one label then stopped, now wont print anything at all. Have uninstalled/reinstalled driver and also tried deleting printer.



    When I press print, the error message appears from the printer

    Yes, i'm having the same problem. The strange thing is that I have been using my Dymo 400 for about 6 or 7 months now with zero problems. Starting yesterday it suddenly stopped working. It wont print anything and my printer status says "Error - Printing". The printer is being recognized properly. I tried uninstalling and installing the software. Nothing seems to work.

SOURCE: New labelwriter 400 turbo will not print under windows 2000

I had the same problem and accidently discover it was something very simple...at least in my case. I noticed the power cord connection was very good.. I notice the light on the transformer (cord) was sometimes green then it would go out. When I unplugged and then put some force into reconnecting the printer worked. Hope that helps.

SOURCE: Dymo 400 was working fine, then I had to unjam

You probably didn't damage it, it sounds like you may have knocked loose the thermal printing portion (which is the most important part). There is no easy way for you to repair this but Dymo will usually do it for free under warranty. Their phone number is:
(203) 588-2500

SOURCE: Dymo labelwriter 400 Turbo -We replaced the roll

There are a few common reasons this is problem can exist.

1.) the incorrect template is used when creating the label

2.) the labels are installed incorrectly - the labels must be loaded and pushed against the left side of the printer and lid closed when printing to ensure the labels don't "wander" out of the sensor's view.

3.) the label sensor is covered by some debris - sometimes a label jam can cause a piece of label to become stuck on the underside of the sensor thus blocking its view. Use quality Dymo labels.

4.) The labels are defective - if you have another roll of the same size, try it to see if it has the samme issue.

Dymo label writer 400 turbo will not print


Uninstall the software and disconnect the printer from your PC. Then reinstall version 8 of the Dymo Software (without the printer connected) and connect the printer when prompted by the software.

Make sure you are using version 8 of the dymo label software - it is compatible with Windows 7.

Print orientation


If you are printing from the included software, it has options for labels with vertical printing. If printing from a third party program, you can go to the dirver settings and change the printing orientation.

DYMO THINKS ITS OUT OF PAPER ....


New versions of the Labelwriter 400 (original and Turbo) do not take Generic Labels. It is an issue with the firmware Dymo have installed - it will only relabelwriter400.jpgad the genuine labels made by Dymo. currently there appears to be no work around to solve this isses.
The Dymo OEM labels have lines print on the back, if you use labels without these lines, the printer gives an "out of paper" error
The only printers in the Dymo Range that will take our generic labels are the Dymo Twin Turbo and the Dymo Duo (both the more expensive from the range).
Dymo have only made this change in the last 6-8 months, old 400's will work with cheaper generic labels
