Not typing any letters

The daisy wheel and ribbon are installed correctly and the cassette is latched (plenty of good ribbon). Nothing is typing when I hit a key.

The printhammer/wheel may not be latched into place. there is a black lever on the right side of the printhammer. you pull it towards you to remove the printwheel and forward to latch it into place. otherwise the machine will probably need repair, or just go to a thrift shop and you can pick one up for $10 to $25 dollars. just plug it in and try before you buy.

Need to re install the cassette daisy wheel. How do I align the letters so the correct ones are typing?


Power off & on the wheel will home itself, if not you may have a broken homing pawl. You'll need a tech.

How do i set a new daisy wheel for the ML 100


1. Open the top cover.
2. Pull the lever towards you to release the daisy wheel lock.
3. Remove the cassette daisy wheel by pulling it out of the machine by the protruding "ear' on the top right.
4. Insert the desired cassette daisy wheel into the slot and press down gently.
5. Slide the lever back to its' original position to lock the cassette daisy wheel in place. Make sure to press the lever firmly.
6. Close the top cover.
7. Press [CODE]+[RESET] to move the carrier to the previous position.
(make sure the daisy wheel cassette is not inserted backwards. The "ear" should always be on the upper right.
improper insertion of the daisy wheel may cause malfunction and incorrect printing.
It is not necessary to remove the cassette ribbon when replacing the daisy wheel.
Please check the shape of your daisy wheel cassette before replacing the daisy wheel. The daisy wheel cassette type "B" cannot be used with this machine.)

How to install daisy printwheel and cassette ribbon on Sears electric typewriter Model #161.53024650


Nobody wants to try so i'll give it a shot. All Sears typewriters are made by some one else. ROYAL, SCM, Olivetti ETC.) Most daisy wheels are released with a lever just l. or r. of the wheel pull it towards you and remove the wheel. There are 2 basic types of ribbon the ones that are released by a lever and those that just snap in.

Hope I was helpful

Swintec 4000; type writer ribbon will not stay on and when it stays on - nothing prints out, and the ribbon jams up


Hello- Of course the cheapest fix, is to try a second ribbon. If you need one we have them at FJAproducts.com

Most often the reason the ribbon cassette will not stay in place is due to not being seated properly. I am sure you have taken it out a few times and re installed it, but that is "normally" the only reason it "jumps up" one more thing to check in the lever near the daisy wheel. if it got bumped or unlocked the daisy wheel your ribbon will not seat properly.

Good luck.

My typewriter doesn't type..won't display letters, but keys work.


alot of the brother t/w's have 2 cam assemblies under ribbon holder. 1 operates the print hammer and 1 operates the correction ribbon lift. sometimes these will hang or lockup. sometimes turning on and off a few times will take care of it, but sometimes it needs to be worked on by a t/w 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.

Daisy wheel will not stay on wordsmith 100



CHANGING Changing The Ribbon Cassette 1) Move the print carrier to the center of the platen using the SPACE or BS key. 2) Hold the ribbon cassette on both sides and lift up the front portion (where the ribbon is exposed) to remove the cassette. 3) To insert a new cassette, place the back end of the cassette on the cassette holder on the carrier and gently press down on the front of the cassette unit it clicks into place. 4) Turn the ribbon feed knob counter-clockwise again to take up any slack in the ribbon. 5) Presss the CODE + = (SETTING) key.

Changing The Print Wheel 1) Move the print carrier to the center of the platen using the SPACE or BS key. 2) You will see a lever on the right side of the carrier. Pull this lever toward you and lift out the daisy wheel. 3) Place the daisy wheel into the slot with the characters facing the platen. 4) Push the lever back into position. 5) Press the CODE + = (SETTING) key.
It appears as though you have something that is preventing the print wheel from being locked in place by the release lever. It should make a snapping or similar noise when it is locked down.
