These are the steps that may be useful:
1. Use double the amount of template that you normally use.
2. Use double or 1.5x primer than you normally use.
3. Do the labeling and termination reactions for 2 min each.
4. make sure that the labeling reaction is carried out slightly below room temp.( 20 C)
With these manipulations I have been able to read within 10 bases of the primers.
