SOURCE: Brother Correctronic 40 Not striking

You’re right Brother authorized service centers are hard to come by and now that the one that I was working for went bankrupt I can’t buy parts any longer.

Let me see if I understand the problem. When you start typing it’s ok and as you continue typing it get’s lighter then it finally stops printing? If you let the machine sit like overnight it starts all over? If so what you need is a .20¢ rubber bumper used to lessen the hammer noise.

What happens is the rubber get’s sticky with the heat generated from use. I have tried to find a substitute (for the Brother part) and nothing I have found lasts very long. If you just remove the bumper the hammer makes a terrible racket (too noisy for more people), and I suspect if it were used without the bumper the hammer mechanism would rattle apart after a short time.

I know this can be repaired easily but not cheaply. The machine is old, it’s time to consider a replacement. Sorry!

I have a Brother GX-6750 correctrone that won't


If you can roll it in by hand but ie won't advance you most likely have a cracked gear on the index motor. If the pa[er won't go in at all you may have a lable stuck. Try feeding and pushing thin piece of card board thru/

Want to purchase Correctronic gx6750 Manual ASAP


The Brother USA site has the manual as a PDF: http://www.brother-usa.com/manuals/default.aspx?PGID=10&R3ModelID=GX6750 . The direct link to the English language version is: http://www.brother-usa.com/ModelDocuments/Consumer/Users%20Manual/UM_GX6750_EN_214.PDF .The manual for the Correctronic GX-6750 is also available to registered users at HelpOwl. You must be logged in to access the PDF: http://www.helpowl.com/manuals/Brother/GX6750/42497 .

I don't see any options to purchase the manual. However, if you save the PDF, you can probably get it printed and bound at any print shop (UPS Store, FedEx Kinkos, etc).

I hope this helps.

Brother typewriter correctronic gx-6750...prints gibberish.


Make certain the printwheel is latched fully into position. Observe the hammer movement while typing slowly NnNnNn. If the hammer does not come to rest at the same position every time the hammer cams are at fault. Make sure there is nothing interfering with the printwheel movement (like the correction tape or ribbon)

Gently push the hammer up to the print wheel, does the notch in the hammer line up with the dimple on the back of the printwheel characters? You will have to look real close.
