Could be 2 things
1: inside where the carriage is there is a switch >>> note the position of it now and try changing the position. Every time you change the position turn the unit off and back on. See if this fixes the issue.

2: there could be a mechanical problem with the daisy wheel or with the clutch. Try number 1 and then we will troubleshoot further if there is still an issue.

What can be the solution's, I am typing the letters on the keyboard and it is printing all different characters on the paper -- is there a command set that should be cleared?

First pull out printwheel and see if the "spokes" are even and straight, Second try a new wheel, and third, on this Brothers, when you turn it on the carrier has to go to the left and you will hear the wheel turn and cycle to the correct home spot. Some times there is a arm that comes out of the left side frame that loosens up and throws the time off, check for loose bracket on left side. But a new wheel may solve the problem Good Luck.

Does the Brother SX-4000 come with Code Caps? Thank you in advance.

I apologize, I am not sure what you mean by "Code Caps" I haven't heard this term used with typewriters before.If you are asking about special characters there are a few. Look at the keys and you'll see a few of them with a GREEN character in it. Hold the CODE key (2 keys left of the spacebar) and press that hey that has the green character on it.If you are looking for the Caps Lock, on this machine they call it SHIFT LOCK (on the third row on the left side of the keyboard).
If neither of these are what you are asking about PLEASE ask the question again with more details.
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.Ron

What model typewriter do you have? Most have a setting key on the keyboard, usually on the left side to change keyboard or printwheel settings.

Wrong Characters

Most typewriters have a switch of keyboard setting somewhere on the keyboard, usually on the left side that allows you to use printwheels with international symbols. Check the settings.

AE 740 types different characters than typed on keyboard

make sure your printwheel is latched securely, turn off t/w, press and hold the margin release button while turning power on to do a reset/self-test. if characters are not right on self test, then you might have a problem with either the carriage or main board.
