SOURCE: paper advance

The paper release lever may be in the release mode. try holding the left platen knob and pulling lightly on the paper is should not allow the paper to move freely, if it is ok try holding the left knob and turning the right knob in the direction you would to turn the paper in it may have come loose if so turn it all the way back in do not over tighten it your machine does not click when the platen is turned it uses electronics to hold the platen on line.

SOURCE: Typewriter will only type straight lines

It sounds like you either don't have a printwheel in the T/W or the spokes are broken. What you are seeing is the hammer face.

SOURCE: Need to be able to get typewriter out of auto mode

Look for a delay print mode - probably a slide switch. If not, check out to see if there is a code or control button. Usually works by holding the code button in conjunction with another key. ie: Code and "D". Model # would be a help.

I've hit a wrong key and now it won't print what I am typing it just moves along the line


Just hit the mode key until TYPE, on the display, is highlighted. There are 3 modes, TYPE (where the machine functions like a normal typewriter), L/L (Where what you are typing shows up in the display and then prints when you hit the "RETURN" button. You can make corrections, in this mode, before you print the line, which saves using your correction tape.) and STORE (which is used to store memory information, such as format and phrases.)

How can I get my typewriter back to its intial settings


There is no keystroke pattern to reset the EM series typewriter. There are two methods to reset this typewriter.
1.You can reset the daisywheel and remain on the same line of type, simply lift the top cover and then close it back down. The carrier will move to the left, reset the daisywheel and return to the last space typed.
NOTE: This will not affect the format settings (bold, underline, etc)
2.If you want to abandon the current typing position; turn off the typewriter, wait 10 seconds for the power supply to reset and then turn the typewriter back on. The typewriter will reset and the carrier will return to the beginning of the current line.
NOTE: Turning off the power will restore the format settings to standard default settings (bold, underline, etc).

When typing with my brother gx-6750 it types weird lingo is the type set messed up or can I reset them?


Your daisy wheel letters are bended not straight.

Switchoff just remove your daisy wheel & remove the daisy wheel from its cover & see all the letters should be straight.If any of them is bended jst make them straight by your fingers dont press too hard & then fix the daisy wheel back & switch on typewriter.

How do you change the pitch or size of the type? The typewriter has 3 pitch settings, but we cannot figure out how to make the adjustment.


hold down "code" key and press 6 for 10 pitch. "code" key and press 7 for 12 pitch. "code" key and press 8 for 15 pitch. to change type size or style you have to replace the daisy wheel.

Is the typewriter a Smith Corona SD 250? If so, you have entered the "memory" mode by mistake. Over on the left side of the typewriter is a switch marked "MEM", "LINE", and "TYPE". Move the switch down to "LINE" or "TYPE" to resume normal typing. DO NOT PRESS ANY NUMBER BUTTONS ON "MEM" MODE! Does this information fix your problem?

I just got this typewriter a few days ago so I don't know everything about it yet... But I believe that this is one way to fix your problem.

Best of luck to you!

Why doesn't my typewriter type when I'm typing


I had this problem once with another brand. One mode actually waits for you to complete an entire line of type before printing it onto the page allowing you to make error corrections without wasting alot of "correction tape". Change the mode back to typing on the fly.
