    Dymo Labelwriter 400 worked perfectly on MS XP OS, with 99016 labels. Used all the roll and put in new roll 30258 and the printer only prints half the label and continually reports it is out of paper.....
    Tried installing updated driver... same result
    moved labels closer to the left hand side of the printer so that the perferations between the labels were lined up... same result
    tried different label setting so that the printer thought the labels were longer and might print the whole text on the shorter label... no success

    Looks like that without the silly barcode prints on the back then we have no chance. Dymo want the label sales aswell as the printer sales. Damm!

    This worked on my LabelWriter 4XL so I am not sure if it will work for you. What I did was I took the paper out completely and then while the paper is out, press the button to advance the label (assuming you have such a button). This will cause the printer to rethink FULLY about whether there is paper in it or not. What happens is that the printer can KIND OF think there is no paper but then be in a state where it's not really checking if there is no paper but just assuming there is not paper.

    Now that you have pressed the label advance button, the printer will correctly think there is no paper. If there is a light on your printer, it will (Correctly blink) because you really did take the paper out. Now feed the paper in and the printer will now FULLY know there is paper present. Print a test page or a real label it's up to you. Hopefully that works for you.

    That trick worked for me, on my Labelwriter 450. My printer had a troubleshoot saying that it was out of paper but the light WAS NOT flashing. I remove the paper completely, I pressed the label advance button a couple of times until the light started blinking! And then I put back the paper and was able to print ever since! Thanks a lot!! :)

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 reDYMO THINKS ITS OUT OF PAPER .... - labelwriter400.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

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.

I had similar problem. Dismantled printer and cleaned all connectors and sensors. Then discovered that the "Genuine Dymo label paper" was a bad batch. The black timing marks were missing in a central portion of the label roll.

DYMO Labelwriter 450 thinks its out of paper! New roll fitted


Hi Chris, the Dymo's are very picky regarding the paper. Make sure you have genuine Dymo paper roll inserted and not the cheaper generics. You will notice the Label Position Hole placement is punched in a different location( ever so slightly ) in relation to the genuine labels.

DYMO LabelWriter 400 Turbo Installed but gives error message when sending prints


First of all, on Dymos you need to use original Dymo roll,.

Dymo rolls have a tag at the back, non original ones does not have it.

Before reinstalling driver you also need to run the dymo uninstaller utility that you find at Dymo website.

I will post the links for download.

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.

How to reset the dymo labelwriter 400 printer


Make sure you use original DYMO paper, otherwise the machine may be confused as to where to begin and stop. Also, cleaning the print head is a good idea if you have had the printer for a while.

The latest software is crucial. Right now it is version 8.4.2, you can see which one you have by clicking on Help > About DYMO Label.

If the above does not help, you are welcome to contact the DYMO help desk (dymo.com and select your country).

My dymo labelwriter 450 says its out of paper when I try to print a label. When its initially connected the printer says "ready" as soon as a print command is made it says it's out of paper....


Hi, I had this problem and found that the labels were rolled up the wrong way, make sure the series of horizontal black lines on the labels are nearest to the left side of the printer as you look at it, this worked for me, hope it helps - Paula

Can you use regular thermal paper rolls in the Dymo 400 turbo printer?


It should work. I have one of those tiny label printers, and thermal paper does indeed work.

OUR DYMO LABELWRITER TWIN TURBO JUST STOPPED PRINTING--


OK! The first time you tried to print ON THE LEFT SIDE, without anymore labels there, there was a "pending" error message in the print queue. This typically cuts off all furtther printing, as all subsequent requests are "behind" it in order or priority.

To fix this, open the Dymo Labelwriter "Printer" dialog box (double-click it on the tray or go to "start / control panel / printer and faxes" - then double-click on "DYMO LabelWriter Twin Turbo". Once open, you'll see a list of "failed" print requests. Somewhere in there you'll find the one with the "laserwriter output" out of paper message. Select that and cancel or delete it.

If this was the problem, all your attempts will now print (make sure you have enough postage paper in, and you'll have extras you can use, I'm sure!

Hope this helps.

Consistantly Intermittent Connection Problems


If you've tried installing the latest drivers and the problem persists it sounds like you have a lemon. The printers have a 2 yr warranty, so I would contact the retailer you purchased from and replace the printer. If your labels are jamming. Try the compatible File Labels available at LabelValue.com. They have both the Dymo 30327 and Dymo 30277 labels in a compatible version.
