If the problem started when you changed label rolls, the problem is most likely the newly installed label roll. In the picture below is an extract from the Dymo Users Guide going over print quality issues.
This is not the correct printer when you have a lot of different label sizes. In your case you should always do a callibrate when changing your labels. You should use a toshiba printer (bsa4 of the new BEX) which i think would be more suitable.
The new labels are probably not thermal labels. Test them by applying heat to the surface and see if they turn black. If they do not change, then they are thermal transfer labels and not direct thermal. Contact your label vendor and have them replaced.
You get the error because the printer doesn't see any paper.
There are paper guides that need to be set for the size of the labels being printed. If you are switching from a 4" wide roll or sheet to a 3 1/2" label, you will have to move the slider in about 1/2". You will also have to calibrate the printer when you change label stock. If it won't calibrate, make sure the photoeye is hittint the break between labels. The photoeye is located where you insert the labels into the printhead path.
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 read 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
We have found a reset that we use.
We unplug the printer and then we hold down the feed button and we keep holding down the feed button while we plug back in.
It goes through some sort of a reset and this sometimes works.
your label length is set incorrectly, there are 2 things it could be 1)
your software is telling the printer the label length is longer then
the current labels, even if the label size is out my a single
millimeter the printer will give you this issue of feed an extra label.
you need to change this in your software. you can set a label size
smaller then the current label size and it will work correctly
you software is not setting a label length and so the printer is going
off its internal setting, to recalibrate hold feed and power up the
printer letting go after the light starts flashing
important to note that label roll will change slightly over time so
even though you are ordering the same labels as a year ago the
manufacturer will have slight changes from batch to batch
