Question about Brother GX-6750 Typewriter
The wheel does not spin and I am attempting to find the lock lever ?
Could be the print hammer selenoid is stuck if the print hammer does not fire at all. It shoild fire whether there is no ribbon or print-wheel installed. Look around for any loose cables but failing that your only option is to go to a repair shop.

First, be sure you are
using a Brother compatible daisywheel. Some other manufactures' daisywheels "look"
the same but the charters are in different order, so they will not function
If you have not changed
the daisywheel, the next thing to check is that the wheel is correctly
installed. The easiest way to check it is to remove and reinstall it. To do
Open the top cover.
On the right side of the
hammer (the metal piece that strikes the daisywheel) there is a small lever
(see attached figure). Pull that locking lever towards you to release it.
Remove the cassette that
holds the daisywheel.
Reinstall it, making
sure that you lock the lever towards the paper roller.
When you close the top
cover the carriage (otherwise known as the print head) will move to one side
and do a procedure known as "Homing."
Test the machine. If it is still mistyping,
continue with the next part. Continued in part 2
