Change of paper roll

Hello.

We have just changed our first roll of labels and the printer isn't printing, though the light/power is on. I feel the new roll has been inserted correctly, so don't know what to do next.

Regards

    my problem is that dymo won't let me insert the new roll of paper into the feeder. I have followed the directions in detail. I have unplugged the power source off the machine but it still does not work!

Yes that's right. After you get printer out of paper error message and you change the roll you need to unplug label printer and plug back in and it will print what's in the print queue.

I had exactly the same problem. It was, eventually, resolved by unplugging the power lead and leaving for a few minutes then re-inserting the power lead.

The print is faded at the bottom of the card


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.

Label writer 450 is only printing half a label and then the blue light flashes like it is out of paper. New roll, worked fine before it ran out


Make sure you use genuine DYMO labels, not compatible ones. Also, make sure you select the right size in DYMO Label.

Disconnect the USB cable and the power cable to reset the printer. Check if the roll is loaded properly - the holes between the labels have to be on the left. Connect the power cable. If the blue light is solid, connect the USB cable and try to print.

Check the DYMO Label version (Help > About). If it is below 8.5.0, you have to update it.

I have the printer TLP 2742 and when we (production) print out labels with different sizes we have to change the roll out of the printer with the correct one. When doing this, we cant seem to find a system...


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.

I am using a Zebra S4M Thermal printer with Zebra brand labels. I changed out the roll of labels with a new roll and it will not print. It completed the task like it always does but i only get a blank...


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.

Hi my printer is not printing, it stoped to work yesterday when I change the paper


Are you getting any flashing lights that could perhaps indicate a paper jam or maybe the paper isn't loaded correctly?

Changed rolls of labels on Zebra GX 420T and now nothing prints


Were the new labels thermal paper? Thermal printers need specially made paper to work right.

Out of Paper Error


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.

Changed roll of labels, now it won't print...


Warren
one side of the paper will be sensitive to heat and the other side won't be. If it is thermal paper run a pen without the actual ink part sticking out of the pen or use a key from your key ring in your pocket over the paper the friction should leave marks on the thermal side of the paper.
you may have the paper in with the non thermal side facing the heat printing part of the paper. Or you have the wrong paper.

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

Printer keeps printing blanks...


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.
