Ok,there could be two possibilities ,1, The daisy wheel may not be seated in properly. Of course I assume that the print side of the daisy wheel is facing the platen and that when the typewriter is switched on the print unit makes its customary re-setting motion and that the daisy wheel spins around at the same time. if this does not happen make sure that the lock-in lever for the daisy wheel is pushed home.. I am sure that you do all these elementary things so the only other possibility is the the hammer seleniod is not fully functioning and would have to be re-placed....Good luck!

sounds like it needs a good clean. Your best bet would be to look out for a Brother service centre or at least an established typewriter repair centre. Most modern technicians will be able to get your Brother working again...Good luck!

Dear Chruchbells,

You may be right about typing on the coreection riboon. Tell your friend to take out the ribbon cartridge and reinsert it. It needs to click all the way down, or else if it is at the ink cartridge level, it will type white!

My Brother EP-43 Typewriter doesn't work or even turn on

To print from your machine
1. If you are printing from battery power insure the batteries are good and installed correctly, or use the AC adaptor.
2. If using the AC adaptor insure that the adaptor is plugged into a working AC outlet, or use a good set of batteries installed correctly.
3. Insure the ribbon cassette is installed correctly
4. Insure that the ribbon cassette has not run out. If all the ribbon is on the left take up reel then replace the ribbon
If there are still no characters on the paper your machine may need to be serviced

I have a brother GX6750 typewriter do not understand how to install correction ribbon

well, the correction ribbon is for erasing mistakes, it literally, pulls the ink off the paper, but you have to hit the correction button, the type writer will back up and pull the ink, but you would hear ait and be able to tell the diff. I think maybe you should check 1st that the ink ribbon is the 1 closest to you, and the correction ribbon is behind the ink ribbon- also make sure they are in the correct direction- ink side of the ribbon facing your paper- sticky side of the correction ribbon facing the paper- so its you, the ink ribbon and then the correction ribbon then the paper

I can't get the ribbon cartridge in the down position to type.

It seems to me that your cartridge is not sitting correctly. If you are using an OEM ribbon, then it may well just be that you have not correctly inserted the casing. In that case, I suggest you try again.

If you are using a COMPATIBLE ribbon, then it is most likely due to wrong design of the casing. Unfortunately, some compatible ribbons in the marketplace do come with lugs, even though they look very similar to the correct cartridges. If you require further advice or would like to replace your ribbons, i suggest you contact

Old typewriter Brother DELUXE 800 : ribbon reference ?

This is what you are looking for:
Brother Typewriter Ribbon spool black and red SC-20BR-BRO Compatible
Brother Typewriter Ribbon spool black and red SC-20BR-BRO Compatible
Brother Typewriter Ribbon spool black and red SC-20BR-BRO Compatible
The typewriter ribbons for use in Brother manual typewriters are usually all the same. What matters is the size (diameter and hight) of the spools.They differed only in that they were available in different colours (usually black or black and red) and in different materials: some ribbons were made of nylon (cheaper) and other made of silk (more expensive and higher quality) .
Maybe some old and good stationer's (papeterie) still carries them or has some in stock.
Or else you may want to contact the customer support service of Brother, in France, for advice on where to find them in your Country.

Brothers SX400 - cannot get ribbon threaded so key strikes it

If you bought the correct ribbon for a start, then you do not need to rewind it. It should come already wound round its pulleys, and should not fail due to slippage. there should be supports in the mechanism to keep the ribbon in place.

Assuming you have the correct ribbon (that is the fabric is in its right position), and the cassette casing design is correct, the cassette should sit squarely and correctly to enable your printhead to strike the ribbon when you press your keys.

So, the reason why the casing is sitting about 1/4 inch above the guide may well be because of a wrong casing design. Carefully compare the design of the ribbon cartridge that you have with that of an OEM. YOU MAY FIND a lug or protrusion. If this is the case, I suggest you get a new compatible ribbon cartridge with a good design from a reliable source. is one such source.
