Check to see if the pitch selection is in PS proportional space. If not the homing pawl spring is probably broken. DickyO

My Brother ML100 is not printing what I type

Hammer sticking and typing incorrect letters (and or skipping letters): 1) make sure daisy wheel installed correctly. 2) hold down CODE key & Q (RESET) to reset wheel...if still not corrected 3) WD40 the hammer at the base & joints where moving parts are, keep typing until oil seeps in (this last one fixed it for me)

Typing light and inconsistant-top part of letter okay but bottom too light or not there: to left of hammer (at base) are 2 screws, I losened them and adjusted hammer to different forward and backward spots..finally found the ideal location where full letter printed and had the correct force it needed to print correctly.

My pendrive cannot open and also cannot format what to do pliz tell me

would help if you can post details on what happens when you try to open the pen drive or when you try to format it, like is it actually detected by your system, or is there any type of error?

as a suggestion, try to test it on different USB ports on your computer. If it is actually detected, which means, there is a drive letter assigned to it, open the DOS/Command prompt. If you are using Windows OS, type format X:\ and press the Enter key. Be sure to substitute X with the correct drive letter assigned to the pendriive. Hope this helps.

My laptop keyboard is typing different letters and numbers

It sounds like your keyboard is starting to go. Try plugging a usb keyboard and using that. If your keyboard needs replacing, it may be around $50, but that will depend.

First see if the ribbon is spacing a full space for each letter pressed if not you may be in the over strike ribbon mode, to get out of the mode press code and comma, period or slash i'm not sure which one So try them all.
If that dosen't help check to be sure the correction tape is not getting in the way, remove the corr. tape and try it.
Next remove the ribbon and release the hammer as if you were changing the P/W and see if the plunger in the solenoid is free, if not try a drop or two of WD40 on it.

Wong letters & numbers

I downloaded the manual from and then, following the instructions there, I removed then re-inserted the daisy wheel. This solved my problem. Perhaps it had somehow gotten out of adjustment. At least, it is something to try if you haven't tried it already.

The letters i type do not come out- they're other symbols

If you turn off and on and it types the proper letters at first then types gibberish look at the printwheel for bent spokes or other damage, then check to be sure tou have the proper correction tape (DRY).

Hope this helps
