PPGACCESS - Tech Notes

New versions of the Labelwriter 400 do not take Generic Labels

New versions of the Labelwriter 400 (original and Turbo) do not take Generic Labels. It is an issue with the firmware Dymo have installed - it will only read the genuine labels made by Dymo. currently there appears to be no work around to solve this isses.

The Dymo OEM labels have lines print on the back, if you use labels without these lines, the printer gives an "out of paper" error

The only printers in the Dymo Range that will take our generic labels are the Dymo Twin Turbo and the Dymo Duo (both the more expensive from the range).

Dymo have only made this change in the last 6-8 months, old 400's will work with cheaper generic labels.

Windows 7 Version

If you are purchasing new computers for your shop, please note that PPGAccess software will not run correctly on the HOME version of Windows 7 as it does not contain the required networking functionality.

For commercial use we recommend Windows 7 Profesional - either 32 or 64 bit versions.

Should you need further advice on buying computer hardware please contact your PPG representative or the PPGAccess help desk on 1800 627 798 (AU) or 0800 442 531(NZ).
