Dymo Label Writer setup for eClinicalworks

Dymo Label Writer setup for eClinicalworks is used once a lab specimen is collected and the nurse needs to label the container to track the patient’s data.  There are plenty of steps or stumbling blocks along the way prior to producing that printed Dymo label.  We document troubleshooting Support for Dymo Label Maker so you don’t have to.

To load label roll

1) Place the label roll on the spindle so that the labels feed from underneath and the left edge of the label roll is firmly against the side of the spool.

2) Press the spool guide tightly against the side of the label roll, leaving no gap between the roll and the spool.

3) Insert the label spool into the slot in the cover with the labels extending from underneath the roll.

4) Align the left edge of the label with the left edge of the label feed slot and insert the label into the slot.

5) The printer automatically feeds the label, stopping at the beginning of the first label.

6) Slide label guide against labels.

Configuring the Print Server

When you first install the print server, the server is automatically assigned an IP address. Every time the software is launched, the IP address is displayed next to the server name in the Control Center window.

By default, the server is configured to automatically get an IP address. If you are using the print server on a small office or home network, we recommend that you configure the server to use a static IP address. This will ensure that the computers connected to your network will always be able to locate the print server.

 

Adding a Printer

In order to print to the LabelWriter printer that is connected to the print server, you must first add the printer to your computer. You can add the printer to any or all of the computers connected to your network. You must have the LabelWriter printer drivers installed on your local computer to add a printer. The printer drivers are included in the DYMO Label Software installation. Note Because the LabelWriter Duo printer is actually two printers in one, you need to add both the label printer and the tape printer to your computer. These two printers show up separately in the printer list. This chapter describes how to add a printer in Windows XP, Windows Vista, Mac, and Linux.

 

Adding a Printer in Windows Vista
