Good to know

  • In most cases, problems are solved by checking these 3 basics:

    1. Are the correct batteries being used?
    - Batteries might be low
    - it is advised to use only Duracell Alkaline batteries with DYMO machines
    - DYMO machines will not work with Carbon type batteries
    - All batteries used in the machine should be of the same brand
    - Old batteries should not be used in combination with new batteries

    2. Is the print head clean?
    Clean the print head with the special brush delivered together with the labelmaker or a cotton bud and a soft solvent (e.g. alcohol).

    3. Is the cassette correctly positioned?
    Push the cassette firmly into the compartment in order to make sure it fits at the bottom of the cassette compartment.  
Troubleshooting
  • Printing, printed labels
    • The ink ribbon sticks to the label and comes out of the labelmaker

      Problem Details:

      When labels are printed, the ink ribbon comes out together with the tape. It seems like the labelmaker has printed the text reversed.

      Possible Cause(s):

      A. The tape has not been used for a while.

      Solution:

      1. Take out the cassette and pull the tape 10 cm out of the cassette.

      2. Wind the ink ribbon somewhat further by turning the black spool in the cassette clockwise until the ribbon is taut and flat.

      3. Reinsert the cassette and print an empty label.



      B. A new cassette was inserted and the ink ribbon was not taut and flat (not for machines with a carbon retensioner).

      Solution:

      1. Wind the ink ribbon somewhat further by turning the black spool in the cassette clockwise until the ribbon is taut and flat.

      2. Reinsert the cassette and print an empty label.



      C. The ink ribbon is broken

      Solution:

      Replace the cassette by a new one

    • The characters on the label are printed on top of each other

      Possible Cause(s):

      There is dust or dirt on the rubber transport roller inside the cassette compartment

      or

      The carbon ribbon got wrapped around the rubber transport roller inside the cassette compartment



      Solution:



      The rubber transport roller should be cleaned with either:

      the special brush delivered together with the labelmaker

      or

      a cotton bud and a soft solvent (e.g. alcohol).

      or

      the carbon ribbon should be gently removed from around the rubber transport roller inside the cassette compartment.

      The best way to do this is by pulling the carbon ribbon gently with the use of a pair of tweezers and meanwhile letting the roller turn by pressing the print button. Make sure not to touch the printhead while performing this action, to avoid damage.



      If the problem persists, your labelmaker will have to be repaired. Return the faulty labelmaker to your dealer, who will handle the repair procedure from there.

    • White horizontal lines run through the printed text.

      POSSIBLE CAUSE(S)

      A. Due to heavy use, parts of the print head may get dirty and need cleaning.

      Solution:

      Clean the print head with:

      the special brush delivered together with the labelmaker

      or

      a cotton bud and a soft solvent (e.g. alcohol).



      B. The problem is caused by the cassette.

      Solution:

      Replace the cassette by a new one.



      If the problem persists, your labelmaker will have to be repaired. Return the faulty labelmaker to your dealer, who will handle the repair procedure from there.

    • White vertical lines run through the printed text.

      POSSIBLE CAUSE(S)

      The contrast level is too low.

      Solution:

      Increase the contrast level. For help on how to increase the contrast level, please check the manual that was delivered together with the labelmaker.



      If the problem persits, your labelmaker will have to be repaired. Return the faulty labelmaker to your dealer, who will handle the repair procedure from there.

    • The text is printed rather weak on parts of the label.

      POSSIBLE CAUSE(S)

      A. The batteries are low.

      Solution:

      Check if the batteries are still OK and replace them by new ones if necessary. Make sure the new batteries are of a good quality since it often happens that batteries (even new ones) do not provide the power required by the machine. Use only Alkaline or rechargeable batteries with DYMO machines.

      or

      Use an adapter if possible. If you choose to do so, please make sure to use an adapter that complies with your machine's power supply specifications. Your dealer can advice you in selecting the right adapter.



      B. There is dust or dirt on the rubber transport roller inside the cassette compartment.

      Solution:

      The rubber transport roller should be cleaned with either:

      the special brush delivered together with the labelmaker

      or

      a cotton bud and a soft solvent (e.g. alcohol).



      C. There is a problem with the cassette.

      Solution:

      Wind the ink ribbon somewhat further by turning the black spool in the cassette clockwise until the ribbon is taut and flat.

      If the problem persists, replace the cassette by a new one.



      If the problem persists, your labelmaker will have to be repaired. Return the faulty labelmaker to your dealer, who will handle the repair procedure from there.

    • Nothing is printed on the label. An empty label comes out of the labelmaker when trying to print.

      POSSIBLE CAUSE(S)

      The ink ribbon doesn't move with the label while printing.

      Solution:

      Take out the cassette and check if the ink ribbon isn't at its end or isn't broken.



      If the problem persists, your labelmaker will have to be repaired. Return the faulty labelmaker to your dealer, who will handle the repair procedure from there.

    • When labels are printed, the text is not positioned in the middle of the label, i.e. it is printed either too high or too low.

      A. The cassette is incorrectly positioned inside the cassette compartment.

      Solution:

      Take out the cassette and check that there are no objects left in the cassette compartment (e.g. a paper clip, a piece of tape,...) .

      Make sure the tape switch is set to the according tape width.

      Push the cassette firmly back into the compartment in order to make sure it fits at the bottom of the cassette compartment.



      B. The tape is not properly guided through the guidance pins of the cassette while printing.

      Solution:

      To check this, take out the cassette and make sure the tape is guided properly through both guidance pins of the cassette.



      C. An empty text line is entered on the label.

      Solution:

      Remove the unintentional text lines from the label.

      To check for extra text lines, take a look at the display screen and make sure there are no text lines added.

      A new line is indicated by a hard return sign: <-'

      E.g.

      <-' <-' DYMO

    • The text is printed tilted. The characters are not printed vertically.

      POSSIBLE CAUSE(S)

      1. The cassette is incorrectly positioned in the cassette compartment.
