Is your platen snapped down all the way? Can you look at the ribbon and see where the letters are striking the ribbon?

SOURCE: Wheelwriter 3500 only printing top half of letters

Sounds like the platen is not fully seated in the side frames, align the black latches with the frames and press firmly on both sides of the platen. the latches do occasionally crack in witch case you may need a platen replacement.

The platen probably worked itself out press firmly down on both ends of the platen it slould click into place. If it won't stay you will need a platen.

What can be the solution's, I am typing the letters on the keyboard and it is printing all different characters on the paper -- is there a command set that should be cleared?


First pull out printwheel and see if the "spokes" are even and straight, Second try a new wheel, and third, on this Brothers, when you turn it on the carrier has to go to the left and you will hear the wheel turn and cycle to the correct home spot. Some times there is a arm that comes out of the left side frame that loosens up and throws the time off, check for loose bracket on left side. But a new wheel may solve the problem Good Luck.

Typing the wrong letters


First try opening and closing the top cover. If that does not reset the print wheel to the correct characters, check and make sure the correction tape is not interfering with the wheel as it spins. If that is not the case remove the print wheel and make sure non of the spokes are bent. If they are you can try bending them back to the right position or you may have to replace it.

Incorrect character printing.


On the L. side of the keyboard is a slide switch labeled 15, 12, 10 and PS it is probably in the PS position. If it isn't then slide iy up snd down a few times they do get dirty.

No Characters Typing


could be the ribbon is not lifting, do you see an image on the ribbon, also may be twisted inside the cartridge the shiny side has to be facing the keyboard.

IBM Wheelwriter 6 prints only top portion of characters


The platen is probably not all the way in. Be sure the black latches are lined up with the side frames and press firmly down on the platen.

hope this helps

Assuming that you have the correct print wheel fitted and that the typewriter is on standard key board setting then I would look at anything that might be interfering with the rotation of the print wheel. First, remove the print wheel and check that none of the character arms are distorted,then look at how the correction tape is fitted. If this tape is not fitted correctly it could be interfering with the rotation of the print wheel.

Not typing the correct letters


The ML-300 needs to be reset each time the Daisy Wheel is removed or replaced or if the Keyboard Switch changes position. According to Brother, if this is not done the typewriter will print incorrect characters. Try these steps: 1) Open the Top Cover. There is a lever directly behind the Daisy Wheel. Pull the lever back towards you. Remove the Daisy Wheel by pulling it up and out. 2) Verify that it is the Standard Daisy Wheel that came with your machine and not a Symbol or International Daisey Wheel. Write down the Pitch (10, 12, or dual pitch 1012) printed on the wheel. 3) Reinstall the Daisy Wheel (the plastic top ear goes to your right.) Push the lever (step 1) forward. 4) Press the ALT key plus the PITCH key and the number 1 key simultaneously. Verify the Pitch setting is the same as is printed on the Daisy Wheel. 5) Press the CODE key plus the RESET key and the letter Q key simultaneously. This will reset the typewriter mechanism and align (or time, in technical terms) the carriage mechanism. Check if the typewriter prints correctly now. If still incorrect, perform these additional steps. 6) Verify the three position Keyboard Switch (inside the top cover, on the right side, at the bottom) is in the I=Standard position. The other positions are: II=International and III=Symbol. 7) If the Keyboard Switch is in the correct position, slide it to position III and then back to I. (This will clean the switch contacts in case they are dirty and not making good electrical contact. 8) Press the CODE key plus the RESET key and the letter Q key combination again to reset the typewriter mechanism. Check if the typewriter prints correctly now. If still incorrect, the only other things I can think of is that: 1) an incorrect Daisy Wheel is installed that does not work in the ML-300. Brother sell a "B type" Daisy Wheel with two plastic ridges/raised slots below the center of the Daisy Wheel (viewed with the raised top tab on your left.) The B type are incompatible with your machine. 2) the typewriter has failed and needs repair.
