There are 5 ways to fix this problem, and we guarantee that one of the following will solve it for you.

  1. The labels are not left-justified
  2. There is paper dust or a piece of a label blocking the sensor
    • Take the roll of labels out of the printer.  Using compressed air, blow some air along the left side of the paper path inside the printer.
  3. The labels you are using do not have the index marks properly cut out between each label
    • If the index holes are not cut cleanly, you may run into this problem.  Try a different roll of labels.
  4. You are not using DYMO or Labelcity labels
    • If you are not using DYMO or Labelcity labels (or are unsure whether or not you are), please obtain a roll of DYMO or Labelcity labels and try to print again. DYMO labels are made specifically for our printers.
  5. The photo sensor that reads the index mark has failed
    If this is the case, the unit will need to come in for repair. Simply call Dymo tech Support on 1-888-658-3904 and they will advise you of your options.
