Dymo LabelWriter prints skewed labels and reports out of paper

2 CommentsFriday, 18 April 2014  |  Admin

If you are experiencing "wonky text", the label moving about, and the printer reporting out of paper when there are still plenty of labels loaded then the cause is incorrect loading of the labels.  Please see the following diagram on how to correctly load the labels:

If there is a gap between the labels and the edges of the spools the labels will drift along the spool, this will then cause the labels to drift across the printhead (leading to skewed text) and also drift past the paper sensor which is on the left (causing it to stop and report "out of paper").

To fix this problem simply squeeze (gently) the sides of the spool so that they hold the labels securely to prevent sideways movement - simple!
