Pls can somebody help, my new dymo ran out of paper for the first time then now after installing a new roll of labels only prints half alabel then thinks its out of paper and front light flashes, ask to re-print it just pushes out half a label etc. Pls help as im going to hrow it out of the window
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

Had the same problem after replacing the labels.. After many unsuccessful attempts, had a breakthrough.
I placed the labels tightly close to the right border.. worked like a charm. The blue light stopped blinking and printing running smooth.

I had the same problem with my LabelWriter Duo on my Mac OS X 10.10.5 (Yosemite). Print queue wouldn't clear "out of labels" error message after changing label rolls. I used Dymo brand labels. Unplugging and replugging the power cable and the USB cable did not work. Rebooting my system did not work. This worked: opened System Preferences > Printers and Scanners, deleted the LabelWriter driver from the sidebar list, added a new instance of the LabelWriter driver and attempted printing again. The error was absent from the new print queue and printing resumed normally.
