Letters only partially there

The letters when typed on paper are only partially there, I took the wheel out and put it back in but now it will not spin correctly. Any suggestions? I have replaced the ribbon and that did not make a difference.

Hi kehres,

Is there anything slightly pressed from the keys in the keyboard? the Capslock or Shift Key?

If you took the wheel out, ensure that it is places again correctly.

Cutting of bottom of letters


Really, you have a typewriter?

You stop typing before you reach the end. If it is the electronic type with a display, you need to set the paper size to the size of paper you are using.

If you are using a computer and word processing program, again, set the paper size.

My Brother ML100 is not printing what I type


Hammer sticking and typing incorrect letters (and or skipping letters): 1) make sure daisy wheel installed correctly. 2) hold down CODE key & Q (RESET) to reset wheel...if still not corrected 3) WD40 the hammer at the base & joints where moving parts are, keep typing until oil seeps in (this last one fixed it for me)

Typing light and inconsistant-top part of letter okay but bottom too light or not there: to left of hammer (at base) are 2 screws, I losened them and adjusted hammer to different forward and backward spots..finally found the ideal location where full letter printed and had the correct force it needed to print correctly.

My typewriter (Brother GX-6750) does not print correct letters


look for bent or broken spokes on daisy wheel .turning unit off for 20 seconds and back on should reset the daisy wheel home position. probably the daisy wheel.

Wrong letters are printed


The Daisy wheel is probably in wrong..reinstall it until it spins to the home position. Its either that or an adjustment to the print wheel motor.

Have the same problem. Wheel does not line up with keys


You have to loosen the screw on each side of the carriage that holds the silver guide and move it away from the font wheel. The factory adjustment is to put in 2 pieces of paper and adjust to be snug. Take out the paper and it should reset properly.

Different letter appears from the one i've typed


Sounds like the wheel is out of alignment. I had this problem with the one I recently purchased for my daughter. Release the tension on the ribbon and head. Pull the wheel cartridge out and line up the letters. Put the wheel back and reapply tension. Repeat until it is aligned. Took me a couple tries to get it working, but its working and seems to be stable.

Correction Tape


Check the way the correct tape is installed. I have seen people twist them around the guide backwards and the correction material is facing away from the paper. Also can you see the correction tape lifting up?
