Question about Brother ML-300 Typewriter
I installed a new correction tape properly like I have on other occasions but when I type a few letters and hit correct the typewriter does not make the corrections. I noticed previously that the part holding the ribbon and correction tape would lift when I would hit correct. It no longer does that.
Sounds like you have diagnosed the problem. Remove the correct tape and make sure that it's not the "sticky" type. (it will be hard to unwind if it is). Next try to manually lift the part that's supposed to move to see if it does. If it's sluggish (hard to move) put rags around it to prevent over spray and carefully clean all the moving parts with WD40. Make very sure that the WD40 does not get on any electronic parts! It will also mess up the platen. So, the more rags around the moving parts, the better. I used to work on IBM typewriters, and WD40 sometimes works wonders.

SOURCE: Correction function not working
I've found that if I don't use the machine for a few weeks the correction tape that is exposed to the air becomes ineffective. I make a bunch of corrections in a row until fresh tape comes off the roll and the correcting function starts to work again.
