View Full Version : DYMO LM150 labeller

I bought a DYMO LM150 labeller about six months ago.
It worked fine for a few months and now it is missing bits of the characters when it prints. I have tried cleaning the print head with the included head cleaner but that doesn't help much.
It was a pretty cheap labeller -- should I just get something else or go for a Brother? Has anyone had experience with the DYMO LM150 labeller ?
Thanks - Michael

I've had that labeller for 2 years now with no problems at all.
Maybe you got a dud!
If it's only 6 months old, perhaps it would still be covered by the warranty.

While I do not use this printer, many electronic items work best with fresh batteries. So you may want to look at these, even if the low battery indicator is not on.
Additionally, check the tape cassette. Three things to look for:
 tape tension
 cassette is seated correctly
 how much tape is left.
In many cases a new cassette resolves the issue.
If the above does not resolve the problem contact the manufacture and have the machine serviced or at least seek a refund.

My LM 150 is very happy after 14 months of GTDing. I'm on my third tape and second set of batteries. I'd agree with ReBuild - a new cassette is a good NA!

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I had tried the new battery but I hadn't thought of a new cassette --- I'll give that a go.

My Dymo LM150 came with an AC power supply.
Even if it didn't come with it you can purchase an adaptor that will work with it.
Well worth having it....lose those batteries.
If your labeller plugs into the wall, it's far less likely to be borrowed (stolen) by a coworker, and you never have to touch those batteries held neatly together with a rubber band in the second drawer of your desk.

OK the new tape seems to have fixed the problem. Bit of a pain as there was a lot of tape left and they cost about half the price of the labeller itself. Does anyone know if the tapes have a maximum shelf life ? The replacement one was the only one in the shop (OfficeWorks in Australia) and it looked like it had been there awhile.
