Software was written for Dymo printer

Left side of label won't print, if I shift the left margin it cuts more of the label off. Then eventually half the label is missing or it only prints one label.

Dymo LabelWriter 450 Twin Turbo - Until recently worked fine from both sides. Suddenly, no longer printing from left - prints half a label, then stops, then error message says Out of Paper, the blue light...


See if it still happens using a fresh label roll. From the Dymo 450 User Guide the common causes of poor print quality issues.

Poor print quality is most frequently caused by one of the following:
• An old roll of labels
• Labels made by a manufacturer other than DYMO
• Labels where the thermal coating has been compromised
• A dirty print head
First, make sure you are using DYMO-branded labels. Do not use third-party labels because the thermal coating on other labels has a different sensitivity than DYMO-branded labels. Also, the perforated holes between the labels made by other manufacturers are frequently not detectable by LabelWriter printers.
If the print quality becomes faint, small dots of white appear scattered through the printed characters, or light and dark patches of printing appear, you are probably using a faulty roll of labels. Try using a different roll from a fresh box. If the second roll prints correctly, the problem is with the first roll of labels.
Another possibility is that the LabelWriter print head needs cleaning. Every LabelWriter printer comes with a cleaning card. See "Caring for Your Printer" on page 17 for information about the
LabelWriter cleaning card.

Light is blinking and won't print labelsbet


If you like my solution, please give me 4-thumbs up rating.


Why is the light on the front of my Model 330 LabelWriter blinking?

There are 5 possible reasons for this:
  1. The labels are not left-justified
    • Verify that the labels are left justified and loaded properly in the LabelWriter. Click here for more information on loading the labels in the LabelWriter.
  2. There is paper dust or a piece of a label blocking the sensor
    • Take the roll of labels out of the printer and use the provided cleaning card to clean your unit. Click here for more information on using a DYMO Cleaning Card. You can also use compressed air by blowing some air along the left side of the paper path inside the printer.
  3. The labels you are using do not have the index marks properly cut out between each label
    • If the index holes are not cut cleanly, you may run into this problem. Try a different roll of labels.
  4. You are not using DYMO labels
    • If you are not using DYMO labels (or are unsure whether or not you are), please obtain a roll of DYMO labels and try to print again. DYMO labels are made specifically for our printers.
  5. The photo sensor that reads the index mark has failed
    • If this is the case, the unit will need to come in for repair. Select the Ask A Question tab at the top of this page to contact our Technical Support team. Please include the following information so that we can set up a Return Material Authorization (RMA) for you:
      • Full Name
      • Full Shipping Address (No PO boxes)
      • Phone Number
      • Date of Purchase
      • Model Number (a 5-digit number found on the bottom of your LabelWriter)
      • The 11-digit number under the barcode on the same label
      • Serial Number (located on the bottom of the printer, starting with "S/N" -- it also contains a dash after the first five numbers)
      • If your unit is out of warranty (beyond 2 years from the original date of purchase), please provide us with a method of payment (including expiration date, if using a credit card). The cost to repair your unit is either $75, which includes UPS Ground return shipping, or $90 for UPS Next Day Air return shipping. Please let us know which return method you desire.

Dymo prints blotchy labels and feeds out many labels after print


Sounds like you have a couple of issues going on...your labels are incompatible or you have an incorrect template selected in the Dymo Software.

Check that the label model matches the template and you are using quality Dymo Labels. Such as the Dymo name brand or the LabelValue brand Dymo labels.

My dymo label writer twin turbo stopped printing on left side!


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. 4.) the print head 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.

5.) The labels are defective - if you have another roll of the same size, try it to see if it has the same issue. If not, make sure you purchase quality labels like Dymo name brand or Labelvalue brand Dymo labels.
6.) The printer is defective. Labelwriter 400s have a 2 year warranty, so you can contact Dymo customer support to determine if the printer is defective and return to the retailer you purchased it from.

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.

Spits out multiple blank labels and reports a printing error


I just fixed my coworker's Dymo, which had the same problem. I hope this helps: if you've ever fed it labels in the wrong direction (upside down), you may have jammed it and left a piece of a label glued to one or more of the sensors that let the labelmaker know it's finished printing a label.

1. Disconnect your labelmaker
2. Disconnect/remove any unused labels and set them aside.
3. Remove the face plate (with the DYMO LabelWriter 400 logo)
4. Lift the gray plastic lip (labels go under this) and make sure there are no pieces of paper/labels in there.
Once I removed a piece of an old label and put the LabelWriter back together it started working well again.

Labels Print Once Then Fail (3.5 X 1)


"The printer will print one label then either push out a half a blank label or several blank labels. At that point the labewriter thinks it's out of paper. I also noticed that the labels tend to slide toward the middle while exiting. After each print I have to pull the labels back in and realign them. Then the process repeats."
This is because you haven't squeezed both sides of the spool to the edges of the label. Without the sides to hold the label in place it is free to slide about on the spool and therefore slides about where the print head and label sensor are. The sensor is on the left, so if it slides towards the middle the sensor can't see the label and reports "out of labels".

See the diagram here for a clear picture of how to correctly load the labels to avoid this problem:
