If tou put in a two part form and it types on the second form the ribbon is either empty of not lifting up. If it isn't lifting up there is a large black gear on the rt. side of the printer, wiggle it back and forth they sometimes jam tooth for tooth.

Really, you have a typewriter?

You stop typing before you reach the end. If it is the electronic type with a display, you need to set the paper size to the size of paper you are using.

If you are using a computer and word processing program, again, set the paper size.

Why doesn't my new corrector ribbon/ink ribbon work? The wheel advances-nothing shows on paper.


Put in a multi-part form, type if the carbon is OK the problem is with the ribbon. Look at the ribbon if there is an impression on the ribbon but no ink transfer the ribbon is very ols, if there is no impression then the ribbon isn't lifting. THere ix a 2" black gear on the right side of the printer it should move easily if not wiggle it back and forth they get tooth for tooth with the drive gear.

WHEEL IS STRIKING BUT NOT PRINTING...AFTER PULLING & PUSHING THE HEAD BACK & FORTH SEVERAL TIMES A TINY AMOUNT OF INK IS HITTING THE PAPER BUT STILL NOT READABLE


Your print solenoid probably has a broken cap. There are some companies that sell the "kit" with instructions on how to replace the cap.

My Wheelwriter 30 is not printing. The ink cartridge moves up and down, but the characters do not strike the ink/paper. Help!


99% that the print solenoid cap is broken. We sell a kit with instructions and shipping for 20.00.

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.
