Correction tape is stuck

The correction tape and ink tape somehow was switched and when I was tying nothing was happening and when I deleted it began typing. I took out the ink ribbon and now my correction tape is stuck... when someone turned on the typewriter the correction tape aligned to the left and now it is stuck. How can I fix this? HELP!

SOURCE: Print head and ribbon do not in sync

sounds like the ribbon carriage is out of position, try holding the shift, and code keys, then power up, if thats no help the hold frame might have to be resitted.

SOURCE: typewriter won't type letters

HI.. the hammer solenoid may be faulty..it should make a typing sound when you hit a key.( the printhammer moved and strikes the printwheel) or when you changed ribbons you might have unlatched the printwheel..there is a lever you press to relatch it until it "clicks"
If not that then make sure the ribbon is seated correctly, that it is between the printwheel and the black roller.Also visually inspect the ribbon so it is not caught in the printwheel.

SOURCE: Typewriter suddenly will not print!

It's been awhile since I've worked on these.

What is the typing mechanism in here? I believe Brother was using a wheel.

SOURCE: the correctional tape

Hello. I had a similar problem, and Upstatoes helped me. Mine started with striker stuck forward, and then went to working for a few days, but sticking forward again And it was caused by the spring not being in the right place. But the correction tape housing is pushed up and pulled down by the white, adjustable piece on the right side, that has the screw holding it into the adjustment place. If you take off the ink ribbon, push the carriage to middle, and turn on the typewriter, there will be a switch at the top left of the keyboard, on the underside, you will need to flick with your finger, one time, as the carriage moves to the left. This is the reference switch, and you will be tricking the typewriter into thinking it is now in the left side start position. After this, you can see the white adjuster piece on the right side of the carriage, and, as you type a letter, also see if it is holding down the correction tape housing. Then when you hit the erase key, see if the cam on the inside (looking through the small holes in the correction tape housing) turns and pushes up this housing? It may be the tab in the white adjuster is not inside the grove of this cam. Either way, at that point, you may be able to see if something else is not as it should be? My problem was the long side of the spring was not underneth the white adjuster. (I had been putting it under the housing, and it was not helping ot push everything up like it should be.) Aparently this cam with the white adjuster tab in the groove holds everything down, easily, as you type, but has to have the spring help to push up when you use the earse key.

SOURCE: Replaced Typewriter Ribbon & Now Correction Tape doesn't work

Is the ribbon that you installed a correctable one? It should have a yellow or orange knob to turn it. If that knob is blue, you installed a multistrike or non-correctable ribbon.

The only other thing is you have the correction tape in backwards

The correction tape doesn't advance. Works for few words then just gets stuck


Remove the ribbon and correction tape, type a few words make corrections check the gear that drives the correction tape to be sure it is moving (you might mark it with a dab of white out) If it moves then your L/O tape is bad. I've found that some generic ones don't fully engage the drive gear.

When I switch it on, it starts to "bi bi bi....." continuously and the type keeps moving to the left hand side. I restart the machine, it happens again Is there anyway to solve it? Thanks thanks, Flo


Check the Print Wheel for bent spokes if thi is all right try torning it on with the ribbon and correction tape off. If this works be sure the correction tape is a dry one, sticky ones will give you fits.

Correction Tape


Two possibilities, one the correction tape is twisted and the wrong side is .facing the paper. The shinny side should be facing you, the dull side facing the paper. Second possibility you must make sure the ribbon is compatible with the correction tape. There are 2 types of ribbons. A correctable one (orange or yellow knob) and a multi strike (blue or purple knob on ribbon cartridge). The lift off correction tape (orange or yellow spools) only works with the correctable ribbon and the cover up correction tape (blue) works with the multistrike ribbon.

Brother ML100 Lift-Off Correction Tape won't lift off


Correction tapes DO have a shelf life, Also make sure the ribbon is moving and very important and this may sound dumb, but I have seen it that the ribbon is not a correction ribon. Are the spool turns orange or yellow? should be. Blue is multistrike and will not correct. Don't know the shelf life of ribbons but they do loose the ability to correct.....Good luck try new supplies..

Is the ink cartridge correctable ( yellow or orange core) not nultistrike (blue core) ?

Correction Tape


Check the way the correct tape is installed. I have seen people twist them around the guide backwards and the correction material is facing away from the paper. Also can you see the correction tape lifting up?
