No matter if you are using Dymo 30327, Dymo 1744907, or any other compatible Dymo series labels, you are bound to face problems if Dymo LabelWriter thermal printer is not behaving properly. If you are finding yourself stuck with a Dymo printer that is not working properly or causing labels to fade too quickly, then this guide might help you.
How to Troubleshoot Your Dymo Label Printer
When using a Dymo label printer with PC software on your Windows computer, you need to make sure that the correct printer driver is installed in your system. As soon as you connect your Dymo Printer to the system, the printer driver installation window opens automatically. As your computer installs the printer, you need to follow the on-screen instructions.
However, if your Dymo printer is already connected to your system but still not working with PC software, then you can try the following tips:
- Unplug the USB cable from the Dymo label printer.
- Open the Start Menu on your computer and select ‘Devices and Printers’, ‘Printers’, ‘Printers and Faxes’, or whatever option is shown on the screen regarding printers.
- Locate the Dymo LabelWriter icon and right click on it. Select ‘Remove Device’ and ‘Delete’. Then, click ‘Ok’ to delete the installed driver.
- Now, plug your USB cable back into the printer. Check out your computer screen and wait for the driver installation window to open automatically.
- Then, follow the on-screen instructions and re-install the printer correctly.
Once the driver is installed, you can print compatible Dymo labels or Dymo labels easily when you log into the system the next time.
If your Dymo label printer is printing the labels offset, it might be occurring due to the label spool installed loosely in the printer. To correct this problem, you can reseat the label spool.
In case your Dymo Label printer is feeding multiple labels with each print instruction, there might be two reasons behind it.
- The first reason is the label spool is sitting loose in the printer as mentioned above.
- The optical sensor of the printer has become dirty. To get rid of this issue, you can feed the LabelWriter Cleaning Card. You get the Cleaning Card and instructions with your printer. So, check them out where you have stored them or in its packaging if you haven’t thrown it outside.
It is very important that the label roll is fitted into the printer correctly when loading a compatible Dymo label roll into a Dymo brand thermal printer. An improperly loaded roll can easily get detached and jam your printer.
When your Dymo label printer is not printing labels correctly and causing them to blur, smudge, or fade, it typically happens when the roller is dirty or the print head is not clean. Feed the Cleaning Card through the printer two to three times, and your problem is resolved.
If you are still facing problems, then we recommend consulting with an expert who specializes in printers and their working.
