How to remove a jammed tape from a Dymo labelmaker
87 CommentsTuesday, 15 July 2014 | Tech Support
Please find below the manufacturers instructions for removing a jammed D1 tape from a LabelPoint or LabelManager label maker:
- Open the tape compartment and carefully remove the D1 tape cartridge.
- Across from the print head is the feed mechanism. This feed mechanism should appear to be a dull black. A tape/ink ribbon jam is present if the feed mechanism appears to be a shiny black or any other color. In this situation, straighten out a paper clip and GENTLY cut away at the tape/ink ribbon that may be caught around the feed mechanism.
- Using caution, begin removing the jam from the feed mechanism. (Note: We recommend using tweezers to remove the jam)
- Once the jam has been completely removed from the feed mechanism, carefully insert a new D1 tape cartridge.
