What can be the solution's, I am typing the letters on the keyboard and it is printing all different characters on the paper -- is there a command set that should be cleared?

First pull out printwheel and see if the "spokes" are even and straight, Second try a new wheel, and third, on this Brothers, when you turn it on the carrier has to go to the left and you will hear the wheel turn and cycle to the correct home spot. Some times there is a arm that comes out of the left side frame that loosens up and throws the time off, check for loose bracket on left side. But a new wheel may solve the problem Good Luck.

I have a Brother AX- 25 and I cant get it to print in Bold print, can someone help me with setting it up to print bold?

Here is where you buy a users guide.
Ribbon printers are switched to bold by sending an 'ESCAPE SEQUENCE' to the printer just before you send the print out for that line of text. The escape sequence should be in the owner's manual.
Word for Windows will Automatically print correctly in bold if the text is bold, if the right driver is loaded. I cannot find a driver. The driver should be IN Windows.

Wheelwriter III appears to be set on a "stencil" setting.

Is it not printing at all or will it print on carbons and not originals?

If it dosen't print on carbons the print solenoid cap is probably broken. If it prints on carbons the big black gear on the R. side of the printer may be jammed tooth for tooth try wiggling it to free it up. If it needs the cap we sell them for 20.00 including shipping and instructions.

All it will do is print slashes

The printwheel may not snapped in properly and going to it's home position. . Keep will spin to its home position when installed properly, providing its not broken or bent. The slashes are caused from the happer not lining up with a letter. The other problem may be the ribbon may have a bind in it or be out of ribbon. There is a wheel or hole on the ribbon to mover to tightened it up. try that

The cartrdge won't move

? Cartridge..Do you mean ribbon cartridge, print Wheel, or Printer Ass'y. Also check line space LED's for error codes. Clean the sensor located on the printer ass'y (located behind the print wheel) with air. Also (power off) make sure the printer ass'y can slide freeley (L-R-L)and no obstructions have fallen into it's path. There is also a printer home position sensor located on the far left bottom of the printer ass'y travel path. Also clean with air. Let me know if you have error codes.
