Re: possessed typwriter

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.

Typwriter was dropped....when for example a.b.c. are typed, any random letters other than a.b.c. come up

To be honest when you drop something like this you may have bent the frame, cracked a circuit board, who knows???
You may have to take this to a repair facility and tell them what has happened.

In need of a brother GX-6750 typewriter owners manuel please help

First press the Code key and Q simultaneously. That will reset the wheel position. If it clicks or otherwise fails to type properly, pull out the wheel and inspect it. One or more of the types may be bent. In that case, the wheel needs to be replaced. Good luck finding the part.

Will not type

If the 1, 2, and 3 line space keys are flashing in order, you need to change the two AA batteries that are located inside your typewriter.
