When typing, a letter is hit but a number is being printed. Typewriter is a Brother CE-500 model. We think you need to use the "Code"function but the manual has been missing for some time

Turn typewriter off, hold down CODE, turn machine back on.

Make sure you are not set for PROPORTIONAL SPACING.

Remove print wheel, turn machine off, reinstall print wheel, turn back on.

My chuch has an elecric typewriter. (Model KX-E508E) We had it cleaned recently and now it doesn't work the same as it did before. We use to put it in justify mode and as you typed the words came up in...


I can't seem to put my finger on a manual for that machine, but came up with an option to download manual for what must be previous versions of that Panasonic typewriter. They are available here.
I'm thinking that you might be able to find the information you're looking for by perusing one of those manuals instead. Make sure the model number you're using is the correct model # for the typewriter itself and not just the ribbon. (just a thought)
Usually the owner's manual is available from the parts and accessories or the downloads support section of a manufacturer's website, or from a service center site. Panasonic is a huge company, and that link above is the only thing I can find for you, unless you wish to contact them directly. See here for that.. Here's a link to their general support site, and here's a link to someone who claims to have an instruction book for sale.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

I have a brother 4100 fax. how do I change the information on the fax transmission page? thank you


If your date and time are not set yet, press Menu, then 1, then 2 and enter the date and time, pressing Set after each entry. Enter time in 24-hour format so it will display AM or PM properly.

For other info at the top of your fax transmission page after date and time, such as your fax and phone numbers, and company name:
Press Menu, then 1, then 3 for Station ID info.
First put in your fax number and press Set.
Next put in your phone number and press Set.
Next press the buttons for your company name and press Set.
Press Stop/Exit to return to the date and time display.

Here is info on inputting text, from the manual:
Entering Text
When you are setting certain functions, such as the Station ID, you may need to type text into the machine. Most keys on the dial pad have three or four letters rinted above them. The keys for 0, # and don’t have printed letters because they are used for special characters.
By pressing the appropriate number key repeatedly you can access the character you want.
Inserting Spaces
If you want to enter a blank space, press once between numbers and twice between characters.
Making Corrections
If you entered a letter incorrectly and want to change it, press to move the cursor after the last correct letter. Then press Clear; all letters above and to the right of the cursor will be deleted. Re-enter the correct characters. Also, you can back up and type over incorrect letters.
Repeating Letters
If you need to enter a character that is assigned to the same key as the previous character, press to move the cursor to the right.
Special Characters and Symbols
Key - once - twice - three times - four times - five times
2 - A - B - C - 2 - A
3 - D - E - F- 3 - D
4 G H I 4 G
5 J K L 5 J
6 M N O 6 M
7 P Q R S 7
8 T U V 8 T
9 W X Y Z 9
Press for (space) ! “ # $ % & ’ ( ) + , - . /
Press # for : ; < = > ? @ [ ] ^ _
Press 0 for é à è ê î ç ë ö 0

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
