If it is in the delay print mode it will print when you hit ret. If this is not the case you probably need a print solenoid cap, they are available but a little tricky to install.

What do I do when my typewriter types different letters and symbols than the keys being hit


Turn the machine off then on or hold down the "code" key and hit Q "reset" key to get the machine to type the correct keys. This usually happens because something interferes with the free rotation of the printwheel. Check to be sure the ribbon and corredtion tape are installed correctly and check to be sure none of the "fingers" on the printwheel are bent outward. If a finger is bent, bend it back. If everything looks okay, the board or power supply is going bad.

When typing numbers a strange symbol appears in it's place, not a code symbol or a cap symbol.


Hmm, I have a sd 670, and I have a button called KD II, and it makes symbols appear. If you have that key, hit code then hit it. That should bring you back you back to normal.

What does RELOC key6 mean on Brotehr GX-6750? Not BOLD and not Backspace1/2. Just plain RELOC?


Relocate, on any typewriter, generally is used to take you back to where you left off typing. Example, you type a line and see an error at the beginning. You back space to correct it, hit relocate and it will return to where you stopped typing.

make sure the ribbon and correction tape are installed correctly between the metal fingers on the far side of the printwheel and the cardholder. make sure there is no forien objects in the P/W or anything touching the petals on the P/W. turn mach. off for 10 secounds then back on or just hold down the code key and hit the Q (reset) if it still doesn't work, it will need repair or replacement.

First look inside the typewriter for forgien objects and debris, Then put some libhe oil (WD40 works well) on the shaft that the print head slides on.

Not typing correct letters


Send it back for repairs if under warranty. This is not an office machine it is designed for very light home use.

These guys are repairers so they may have extra copies.
IBM's Typewriter's site also has manual for sale for less than $20.

The typewriter seems to have a bad ribbon cartridge or a bad typing wheel. Take each one out and try to see if it will type normal. If one does, then you know to replace it.
