Question about Brother Office Equipment & Supplies
I know the ribbon is good, because I replaced it. This is a daisy wheel typewriter: The letters just don't show up on the paper...what's wrong?
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.

It is usually that the printwheel is in wrong. Make sure the pw does not have any bent "petals" on it making it bind.
After it snaps in and closes it should go to it home position. If not keep trying a couple of more times and it should seat in.
