The nakajima ae610 types two vertical lines instead of letters


The print hammer is striking between the letters. Two thing
you may have a petal, letter broken off. If its the same letter every time usually thats it, need new daisy wheel.
Or Homing is off when the wheel turns hammer hits between letters. Needs repair.
Or
Daisy wheel petals are bent.

My cx 90 brother professional typewriter does not type the correct letter when done manally


First I would remove and inspect the daisy wheel for bent spokes. If that looks ok there may be a problem with the selection plate assembly, but it would take a technician to figure that out. Just make sure you turn the machine off/on if you removed the daisy wheel so it can re-initialize and find the home position of the daisy wheel. good luck.

When typing with my brother gx-6750 it types weird lingo is the type set messed up or can I reset them?


Your daisy wheel letters are bended not straight.

Switchoff just remove your daisy wheel & remove the daisy wheel from its cover & see all the letters should be straight.If any of them is bended jst make them straight by your fingers dont press too hard & then fix the daisy wheel back & switch on typewriter.

How do I reset the Daisy wheel?


Turn the typewriter off. There is a release lever for the daisy wheel. it will rock backwards. take out the daisy wheel. Turn on the unit..the daisy wheel motor spins to the home position. inset the daisy wheel carrier, snap the carrier closed. You should be in home position. if not turn it offf and on again, the daisy wheel should spin. if not do the proceedure over again.
Happy typing

Incorrect characters printing after the third line


Geno111 doesn't know what he's talking about. Look closely at your correction tape once it has passed the daisy wheel. Does it looked roughed up a little? I just had this same error and discovered that my daisy wheel was hitting my tape when spinning and not allowing it to jump characters like it needed to. I simply put a little double sided tape on the daisy wheel cover between it and the metal tab that holds the ribbon at a certain distance, to increase the space the daisy wheel has to spin. It seems to have worked so far. If anyone has a permanent solution, or answer as to how it spins wobbly, I'd love to hear it.
