Dymo Label Printer

Good day to all,I have a Dymo 310 label printer had it for some time been working well must have printed thousands of labels. Now over the past few labels I have noticed that the print is not so good as its been,The question is.Is it the printer at fault or maybe the rolls of labels,Must say that I have had the stock of labels for some time bought from ebay some moons ago. Any help here please printer or maybe labels??. Many thanks in advance.

You can use the head cleaning sheet that came with it - if you can find it! Or, just put a length of fairly stiff rough surfaced paper with some alcohol on through the machine. The labels last a long time but tend to loose their stickiness.

When we had lots of these printers I got adept at taking the heads off to clean but it is fiddly and the dot matrix head is sharp - I have cuts to the fingers to prove it. I now use Zebra label printers and print everything from Word, the later Dymos can only be used with DYmo labels an I wanted a size they dont do.

Thanks for reply,No I have no cleaning card had printer a very long time maybe 4 years,Did try a piece of card in though end product 'no joy'Text bit spoty. Regarding the 'Zebra label printers'Did have a look at them rather pricey printers you must use then for pro work. Thanks.

I do a few labels -- about 500,000 a year -- but mainly only about 10 of any one type -- thats why we store them as Word docs!
