Does this typewriter come with Code Cap feature?


I am sorry to tell you that your machine does NOT have that function.

This is the difference between Shift Lock and Caps Lock.

1) Shift Lock is the traditional upper case used since the oldest mechanical typewriters

2) Caps Lock (what you want) works like a computer, where you get upper case letters and numbers.

Brother does include this feature on some models, but I am sorry to say not yours.

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.

Can I type numbers w/ the caps lock on?


You can type #s with caps lock on but not with shift lock on. Shift lock and cap lock are not the same. To get to caps a code and a key labled caps must be pressed.

Sounds like the shift key isn't entering. Try both shift keys and see if one will turn the light off. If so tou need a keyboard rebuild. It may be cheaper to replace it.
