Question about Brother EM-530 Typewriter
A customer of mine purchased two new EM-530 3 years ago, opened and tested both then stored the other until a few days ago only to find that it appears to be dead, with no visual problem, and not having fully opened it.

First, be sure you are
using a Brother compatible daisywheel. Some other manufactures' daisywheels "look"
the same but the charters are in different order, so they will not function
If you have not changed
the daisywheel, the next thing to check is that the wheel is correctly
installed. The easiest way to check it is to remove and reinstall it. To do
Open the top cover.
On the right side of the
hammer (the metal piece that strikes the daisywheel) there is a small lever
(see attached figure). Pull that locking lever towards you to release it.
Remove the cassette that
holds the daisywheel.
Reinstall it, making
sure that you lock the lever towards the paper roller.
When you close the top
cover the carriage (otherwise known as the print head) will move to one side
and do a procedure known as "Homing."
Test the machine. If it is still mistyping,
continue with the next part. Continued in part 2
