Question about Brother ML-100 Typewriter

1 Answer

Typing characters to the right instead of the regular left one

I don't know if I have accidentally hit something but my type writer is not typing the standard keys. For instance, I want to type "/" but when I hit that key it types ";" instead. On that key there are 4 characters: top right is ":", lower right ";", lower left "/", and upper left "?". All my keys that have something to the left will type that one instead of the usual one to the right. How do I fix this? I have already reset my type writer and tried leaving it off for a while.

Hello,


Hi

Many brother type writers have two cam assemblies under ribbon holder. One operates the print hammer and the other operates the correction ribbon lift. sometimes they gets stuck or lock themselves up. turning on and off a few times will take care of it, but sometimes it needs to be worked on by a tech. If you look when you type a character, most likely the print hammer is not firing or it is striking the correction ribbon instead of the black ribbon.

Let us know if you want to know something more else please accept the suggestion.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.com

Cant typer further than 10 characters


The trouble is probably the silver shaft that the carrier slides on is gummed up. Try a little WD40 on the shaft, if that dosen't work the carrier motor in the L. rear corner may need lubricated, WD40 will do that too.

Typing verticle lines instead of character


It sounds like the spokes on the P/W are damaged or bent, you can try straightening them or put in a new printwheel.

Paper advance


The paper release lever may be in the release mode. try holding the left platen knob and pulling lightly on the paper is should not allow the paper to move freely, if it is ok try holding the left knob and turning the right knob in the direction you would to turn the paper in it may have come loose if so turn it all the way back in do not over tighten it your machine does not click when the platen is turned it uses electronics to hold the platen on line.
