Troubleshooting For Labelwriter Printers

Why are my Printer Blank Labels?

There are a number of causes for your printer to print blank labels. Determine whether the problem is brought on by the information you have input on your computer or a problem with the printer itself.

First, hit the grey button located beneath the slot where your printer dispenses labels. When you press this button, one label ought to come out. There must be a problem with the information you submitted if your printer does generate just one label.

One of your printer's sensors is probably dirty if it prints more than one blank label at a time. Your printer's sensor scans the label paper to check for gaps between your printer labels. If your sensor is dirty, it could be difficult for the printer to recognise the spaces between the labels, which could lead to problems.

How to properly maintain the sensor on your printer

1.Take out your printer's labels.

2.From its packaging, remove the cleaning card. One of these will be included with your printer when you buy it.

3.Similar to feeding a label into a printer, feed the cleaning card. The printer ought to recognise the card and feed it through automatically.

4.If your printer does not recognise the cleaning card, feed it through by pressing the feed button.

5.Once you've finished, discard the card after repeating this process a few times.

How to clean the printer's other parts

After cleaning the sensor on your printer, you should inspect the cables, connectors, spools, and rollers if the problem with blank labels persists. Your printer's problems with any of these parts are probably caused by dirt or a buildup of label adhesive. Use a lint-free cloth and either isopropyl alcohol, diluted dish soap, or diluted ammonia-free glass cleaner to clean each of these parts separately.

How do I fix a label jam in my Printer?

Label jams are annoying, can waste labels and cost you time. The following may need to be taken into account if labels frequently jam in your printer.

Make careful to unplug your printer before opening the lid. The printer's spool must be taken out. Next, take out any labels that might be stuck or jammed in the dispenser. Make careful you remove the faceplate, which will say "Dymo" on it. You will see a lever once the faceplate has been removed. You can disengage the print head from the feed using this lever.

Next, try to separate the labels that have tangled with each other using a straightened paper clip or plastic tweezers. When doing this, exercise extreme caution to prevent harm to your printer. You might also try scoring the labels with dull scissors, just be careful not to cut the printer roller.

It is a good idea to run a printer cleaning card through the printer a few times once you have cleared off all the jammed labels. This will remove any adhesive or debris that you might not be able to see.

Best practises for printer maintenance

The easiest approach to guarantee that your printer prints correctly for an extended period of time is to consistently maintain and clean it. Although one cleaning card will be included with your printer, you should buy extra right immediately for future use. The cleaning of your printer card will remove debris and glue from hard-to-see areas of the printer. Your printhead will remain clean and functional as a result. Depending on how frequently you use your Printer, I suggest using a cleaner card 1 or 2 times per month.

Make sure you are accurately placing labels into your printer since this is another simple maintenance step. When placing labels into your printer, always make sure that the adhesive is covered. In your printer, the glue can lead to buildup and jams.
