When i type letters they come up with other letters that don't correspond with the keys I hit. I have the brother sx-4000


If you aren't in KBII or a language mode or P.S. pitch the printwheel homing pawl is probably broken. You need a tech.

How do I download brother SX-4000 electric typewriter?


If you are asking how to download to a computer file or a storage device, there is not a way without a major modification to your hardware (commonly known as a HACK to the device). Brother did not include a way to download from memory to a computer file.On the other hand, if you want to print what you have on the LCD screen you are typing in display mode. There are 2 typed of display modes (Line by line, and Auto) The way to print in display mode is;

  1. Press return if you are in Line by line.
  2. Type a complete page with and the machine will add the return when you reach the Right Margin.radarron_1.jpg

To determine what mode you are in, on the right side of the display you will see the operate section (see attached diagram) . If the triangle is pointing up you are in "Auto Return", if it is pointing down you are in "Line by Line" mode. If you don't see a triangle it should type as a normal typewriter (each letter as soon as you type it). To toggle through the modes hold the ALT key and press the OPERATE key. The keys that are activated by the ALT are color coded (same color as the ALT key) and are across the top of the keyboard.

HOW CAN I TYPE IN UPPERCASE AT THE SAME TIME AS TYPING NUMBERS FOR EXAMPLE ABC123. IT'S ON A BROTHER SX-4000 EXLECTRONIC TYPEWRITER


I am sorry to tell you that your machine does NOT have that function.


This is the difference between Shift Lock and Caps Lock.

1) Shift Lock is the traditional upper case used since the oldest mechanical typewriters

2) Caps Lock (what you want) works like a computer, where you get upper case Alphas and numbers.

Brother does include this feature on some models, but I am sorry to say not yours.


If this helps you, PLEASE log back on to this webpage and leave comment. It's nice to know that I am helping someone and not just wasting my time.

Types funny symbols instead of the number I


The typewriter will print the incorrect letter, or the face of the hammer if it does not spin properly to the correct position. 1. Turn the machine offf for 15 seconds and turn ON, or Depress MODE RESET(the Q key). This will rehome the Daisywheel.I If it prints correctly for awhile then looses its' position, check for ribbon or correction tape interference with Daisywheel movement. If it does not print correctly as soon as you start typing, remove the Daisywheel and inspect the spokes to see if any are bent. Reinstall the Daisywheel and power ON. If the Daisywheel has a bent spoke or two, you can try to straighten them, howvever the cause of bent spokes is a concern. While typing, carefully watch the print hammer movement. It should always return to the same position and not move towards the paper until a letter is pressed. If it does not come to rest properly, the hammer is not in proper timing and may enter the Daisywheel while it is spinning to the character, thus causing damage to the Daisywheel or causing it to lose homing. .The hammer cams would require adjustment ore replacement. If bent spokes is a persistent problem, make sure to get the hammer problem repaired before buying a new daisywhel.
