Question about Dymo LetraTag QX50 Thermal Label Printer
When I print, the writing is all faded and blotchy. I tried cleaning the parts, but it is still blotchy.
I had the same problem, thinking it needed a new tape, but it was actually just the batteries. I forgot it is not ink based - it is thermal based. It needs lots of power to burn the letters onto the thermal tape, so even though the tape was moving and it sounded like it was working, the thermal head wasn't getting enough power. I changed the six batteries and it is working fine.
hope this helps, even though it's almost a month since you posted it.

I want to than Frank who posted the thing about batteries. My Dymo Letratag (sorry I don't have the model in front of me) was doing the same thing. When the guy at Office Max said it might be the batteries, I thought he was nuts. But I saw Frank's reply, changed to some good batteries and yes, it's printing clearly again. So try that first. That didn't make sense until I read Frank's message.
