Label writers are plenty however, Dymo Label Maker has made quite a name. Over the past few years, it’s thermal label printers have exhibited superior technical performance. But, on the other hand, we cannot ignore the problems associated with it.
I would like to remind you that my company provides technical assistance regarding Dymo Label Maker issues. You are free to call their support and get help from service engineers.
Why Problems With Dymo Labels Makers
It is quite questions which can be asked. Why Label makers?
No, not obviously because they are simply excellent pieces of technology. But because of the fact that their structure is compact.
Label Makers are used widely and continuously, to meet certain demands. And this is one of the primary cause of their performance issues.
When I came across users, I found a few common problems. And they were not just common, rather recurring.
Thermal printers work on the principle of thermal transducers. And heating effects are their heart and soul.
So basically, although thermal transducers have considerable insulators too to restrict micro-circuit heating, you can never stop energy completely.
It is like a house that restricts sunlight yet, gets heated up. So, because of this overheating, circuitry gets broken and they malfunction.
Another thing that happens is improper print output. Due to thermal heating, the labels inside gets disrupted and disoriented. Due to this, the label output comes out improper.
If we ignore hardware problems like switch issues or other damages, then software issues are also persistent.
We will see in the next section some of the persistent issues with Dymo Label Maker. Most of them would be related to software-oriented.
The reason is simple. Label Makers have inbuilt insulators which inhibit excess heat outside. But there are no software protection devices that can assist in software failure.
General Dymo Label Maker Software Problems
These are some of the most frequently occurring issues with Dymo Label Maker.
Software Installation Issue
Dymo brings out the finest printers compatible with Windows PC. Dymo printers have software compatible with every Windows Operating System version.
When you first install the printer driver, it may show an error message or may not run at all. It is not mostly due to OS incompatibility but due to other issues as well.
Software installation may malfunction due to corrupt files and missing files as well.
You can uninstall any pre-installed printing driver and reinstall the new Dymo printer. That is, uninstall the old and bring in the new.
This should help you with your installation procedure.
This error is something you cannot afford especially when you have certain printing quality to maintain.
The offset can be caused due to several reasons. I will start with the most technical one.
If your label spool is sitting loose on your Dymo Label Maker printer, then offset occurs most frequently. However, there are other reasons as well.
Your page misalignment also matters. A misaligned page causes improper margin settings and prints out of your desired border.
You can reset the spool, check for page alignment and change final printing settings.
The Problem of Multiple Printing
At times, it may happen that multiple labels are being printed. I can sum up the causes into these two categories-
The looseness of the Label spool. Due to misalignment, it may wobble during printing. This wobbling motion may cause multiple printing.
You should always clean your optical sensors. If there is too much dust accumulation, then the sensors may not work and may cause internal copying of your images.
As a result, all your images are multiplied in the copier which in turns multiplies the print.
But, you can easily get rid of these issues. You can re-align the spool to a correct position. And also, you can clean the optical sensors card to keep it free from dust particles and avoid multiple printing.
These are some of the most common problems with Dymo Label Maker. However, there are many other issues like bad print quality, smudged prints and improper color correction in the labels.
