Make sure the ribbon and correction tape are installed correctly between the metal fingers on the far side of the printwheel and the cardholder. make sure there is no forien objects in the P/W or anything touching the petals on the P/W. turn mach. off for 10 secounds then back on or just hold down the code key and hit the Q (reset) if it still doesn't work, it will need repair or replacement.

I have a brothers sx-4000 typewriter, i recently bought new ink ribbon. But for some reason my typewriter still does not print the letters at all. I know my typewriter is still good, I dont know why it...

There are two things that people mess up when changing printwheels and ribbons. Is that the ribbon is not in the guides properly. The other is that the latch the holds the type wheel is not locked in the forward position.
