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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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
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!
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.
