It sounds like the print wheel is not at HOME Position or it's set for Proportional Spacing.

I have a Brother WP-2000 word processor and when I changed the Daisy Wheel the letter typed is not printed and another letter or symbol is printed. How do I align the daisy wheel so this does not happen


Turn the typewriter off, remove the daisy wheel.

USUALLY there is a small rectangular slot in the daisy wheel that points up.

Insert wheel and turn on.

Make sure your spacing is NOT set to PROPORTIOAL SPACING

I get a white line on the printed pages on my Brother MFC4800. The line is about 5mm wide and runs down the left hand side of the paper, cutting through the type. Can you help please


Try cleaning the optics and the charge corona. If you do not have the operators manual which outlines the proceedure, go to www.welcome.solutions.brother.com. The proceedure is in the CLEANING documentation. Make sure the wire cleaner is pushed all the way back to its home position. Otherwise, the white line may return if the cleaner is left in the expoure path. IF THE WHITE LINE APPEARS ON PRINTED PAGES GENERATED BY YOUR COMPUTER, THE WIRE CLEANER IS THE MOST LIKELY CAUSE.. IF THE WHITE LINE APPEARS ON PRINTS THAT WERE SCANNED USING THE BROTHER SCANNER, THE OPTICS MAY BE SMUDGED. LOOK FOR CORRECTION FLUID ON THE GLASS **** (THE NARROW SCAN GLASS). THIS IS THE USUAL CAUSE.

Old brother word processor/electric typwriter WP-3550, any idea how to get it to type? is there a command? any place i could find a manual?


Hit the TW/WP key on the top row of the keyboard. TW/WP stands for typewriter/wordprocessor. This toggles between using the word processor manually (like a typewriter) and using the monitor to enter text and then automatically print it out (like a word processor on a computer). My guess is, you do not have the monitor that came with the word processor. I believe it will still work once you press the TW/WP button. Hope this helps.

Why doesn't my typewriter type when I'm typing


I had this problem once with another brand. One mode actually waits for you to complete an entire line of type before printing it onto the page allowing you to make error corrections without wasting alot of "correction tape". Change the mode back to typing on the fly.
