Question about Brother GX-6750 Typewriter

1 Answer

Correction Tape We initially were having a problem with the typewriter getting stuck and not returning so I took it apart and cleaned it out and found a paper clip stuck in it. I put it back together and now there is no problem with it returning, however the correction tape won't correct now. Every time you go to use it, it actually darkens the letters instead of removing them. And then sometimes there is a problem with the keys themselves, they are typing the wrong letters. I think I fixed that problem but the correction problem has baffled me, so any help would be greatful. Thanks in advance.

Re: 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?

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.

Why won't correction tape advance? Works for a few words then gets stuck.

There are 2 types of correction tapes, a sticky type and a non sticky type. The sticky type is for the IBM selectric series. If you have print wheel, you need the non sticky type. Touch the tape and see if it sticks to your finger, if it does, you have the wrong tape.
