Nearly impossible to solve this problem without seeing it. Possibly a fuse. But a tech should take a look at it. Make sure all of the shipping material is removed.

EM-530 - suddenly the "j"

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 properly.

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 that;

1. Open the top cover.

2. 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.

3. Remove the cassette that holds the daisywheel.

4. Reinstall it, making sure that you lock the lever towards the paper roller.

5. 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."

6. Test the machine. If it is still mistyping, continue with the next part. Continued in part 2

How do i change font on brother EM -530 typewriter

This typewriter uses a "printwheel" In order to change tye typestyle (font) you must change (purchase) a different printwheel. To change the printwheel, pull the lever on the RH side of th print hammer towards the front of the machine and lift the clear plastic cartridge UP. . Contact Brother International for a printwheel or Yellow pages for a local dealer.

Correction Ribbon

If the machine is making allthe correction movements, be sure the correction tape is installed with the dull side facing the paper.
