Type writer is only typing special charaters


sounds like the code button is stuck down or the contacts are stuck together inside the keyboard. If turning the machine off and back on doesn't correct the problem you will need to take it to a repair shop.

Keyboard want work


If your machine is not printing properly:
1.Examine the ribbon cartridge to make sure it has not run out of Ribbon. If your ribbon appears silver or gray, install a new cartridge.
2. Ensure the black lever in the center of the carriage is pressed to the rear, towards the paper. If not press it to the rear to lock the Daisy Wheel into place.
3. With the typewriter turned off, press and hold down the "CODE" Key, the "SHIFT" Key, and the "TAB" Key.
4.Restore power with all three Keys depressed.
5.When the machine sounds a beep tone, release all three keys.
6.The carrier will move to the left indicating that the memory has been cleared and the machine has been reset.
7.Try typing.
If the problem continues, your unit will need servicing. You can locate a Brother Authorized Service Center in your area:

How do i get bold letters on my computer,i do not want to purchase program


Without having the operator manual what I recall on these types of type writers, they have a key next to the space bar called "Features Key."
Most keys are color labeled.
Select the bold feature, it's color origin,
1. Press and hold that features key
2. Touch the bold key, now you are in bold typing mode.
3. When you finish bold typing, press the features key and hold, then touch the bold to turn it off.
