What/where is the ribbon gear drive, My BrotherSX4000 ribbon will not advance, I can do it manually

Ribbon does not advance
    1. Lift the ribbon cartridge out of the typewriter.
    2. Inspect the ribbon for damage.
    3. If the ribbon is silver, it is at the end of the spool and must be replaced.
    4. Turn the colored knob on the left side of the ribbon cartridge counter-clockwise to advance the ribbon a small amount. Replace the ribbon if it will not advance or the knob will not turn.
    5. Reinstall the ribbon.
    6. Try typing a few characters. If the ribbon still does not advance, the machine will need service.

Keys stick. Right out of the box the keys stick and you have to start over. Canon MP18D11 bought at Sam's Club.

Take it back to the store further troubleshooting can make it worst and besides that unit still in warranty so Sam's Club can replace it with another one.

I have a Canon Model MP18D11 and I do not have a manual and cannot seem to get the sales tax button to reset. Someone here at work was cleaning everything and wiped out all my settings, Help please!!

Go to the 3rd chrome button on the top of the keys marked as GT.The chrome button should be over the "on" mark Push the button to the right so that it is over the RATE mark. Key in the tax rate you want. Push the chrome button back to on. It should now give you the correct tax rate increase or decrease by hitting the TAX+ or TAX - buttons.

The ribbon doesn't advance at all? Try turning the ribbon by hand. If it is really hard to turn, or doesn't advance when you turn the knob (make sure you turn it in the direction of the arrow), then the ribbon is defective and you just need to get a good one.
If the ribbon turns easily, the leave the ribbon off, type and watch to see if the black knob on the left of the ribbon plate (the place where you put the ribbon), that turns the ribbon, is moving.
Also I have found that some brands of ribbons simply do not work on this machine. If the ribbon and the ribbon drive is working, try a different brand of ribbon.
