SOURCE: cant find margin release

Generally, the way the margins work is, wherever the printhead is positioned, when you hit the right or left margin set, is where the margin is set. To reset the margin you must move the printhead to where you want the margin set, and hit the appropriate mar. set button. to move the printhead past where the margin is set, you must hit the "mar rel" button, and then backspace or space to where you want he printhead positioned. On machines without a "mar rel" button, you just use the "backspace" or "spacebar" to move past the margin. You can't release the margins permenantly, you can only move them, or move past them using the above mentioned processes.

SOURCE: The hammer that strikes the daisy wheel is stuck

Sometimes it a minor jam and you can just put your finger in the hammer and pull it away from the printwheel. Don't force it there are a lot of plastic gears that can be damaged. If that doesn't work, try releasing the print wheel (like if you were changing it) sometimes that will release the hammer. Last "easy fix" is to cycle the power, Turn the power off and when you turn back on the carriage should reset its self.

SOURCE: The hammer on our typewriter won't strike, it just

Hi - there a many reasons why this happens. Try these first. Replace the ribbon. This might have become tight (faulty) and make this happen. Next clean the main rod that the carriage goes back and forth on, it sometimes get very sticky. Then place a couple of drips of oil on. This should work wonders? Best John ex OEM trained mechanic

Bought new Brother ML300 will not type anything on the paper, please help!


I would check all the basic stuff first. Is the print wheel locked into position? Is the platen all the way forward? (lever right side) Is the ribbon installed correctly and not cocked up on one side? Do you hear the hammer striking the paper? If you hear the hammer striking the paper, it is a ribbon problem. If you don't hear it, it is a hammer / print wheel problem.

My typewriter won't type. The cartridge moves, but nothing prints


The ribbon may be broken or binding so that it cannot advance.

Hammer doesd not strike


There is a clutch system under the ribbon carrier that has to rotate to move the hammer, see if you can see if this part is rotating, also there is a spring that puts pressure on the hammer. If this clutch is not moving it may need replacement,, or cleaned with alcohol.

It sound like you have a broken part. If the hammer is not hitting hard enough, the armature theat make the hammer strike the keys is broken. This is a common problem with the ax's

Hello,


Hi

Many brother type writers have two cam assemblies under ribbon holder. One operates the print hammer and the other operates the correction ribbon lift. sometimes they gets stuck or lock themselves up. turning on and off a few times will take care of it, but sometimes it needs to be worked on by a 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.

Let us know if you want to know something more else please accept the suggestion.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.com

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.

Brother Correctronic 40 Not striking


You’re right Brother authorized service centers are hard to come by and now that the one that I was working for went bankrupt I can’t buy parts any longer.

Let me see if I understand the problem. When you start typing it’s ok and as you continue typing it get’s lighter then it finally stops printing? If you let the machine sit like overnight it starts all over? If so what you need is a .20¢ rubber bumper used to lessen the hammer noise.

What happens is the rubber get’s sticky with the heat generated from use. I have tried to find a substitute (for the Brother part) and nothing I have found lasts very long. If you just remove the bumper the hammer makes a terrible racket (too noisy for more people), and I suspect if it were used without the bumper the hammer mechanism would rattle apart after a short time.

I know this can be repaired easily but not cheaply. The machine is old, it’s time to consider a replacement. Sorry!

Cannot get daisy wheel to type correct letters


Turn oFF the typewriter, take the ribbon out.....use the lever on top to release and remove the print wheel cartridge. Lightly rotate it to see if it will move and reinsert the cartridge. snap it back into place.
Turn on the machine, the typewriter should move the carrier to the left and reset the printwheel....if it is snapped back properly.

Is the hammer striking the paper? What letters print when you press a key? Can you determine if the printwheel is turning?
