Re: Typewriter troubles

First,the paper problem is most likely that your paper release lever is in the forward position,just click it back and you will find that the paper will stay in place and space upwards when carriage return is pressed. Make sure that the printing unit can move freely to both extremes of its travel when the machine is turned off. Lift the top cover up and move the print unit by hand, it will feel stiff but it will move. If all this is in place your problems are over....

Why does paper not advance to next line when carriage returns?

There might be a setting for how many lines it moves when the carriage gets to the end. It is mechanical so you'll see it!

The peice of my typewriter that is supposed to move the paper tothe left as you type doesnt move?

It's either in the carriage lock position, just check if it's locked in place.
The other reason may be that the return spring has broken. Easy to replace & is repairable sometimes.

  1. Is the daisy wheel locked in the forward position?
    1. Pull the black lever back, away from the platen.
    2. Lift out the daisy wheel and inspect it for damage; replace the daisy wheel if it is damaged.
    3. Re-insert the daisy wheel and push the black lever towards the platen until it locks in place.
  2. Is the ribbon moving?
    1. Lift the ribbon cartridge out of the typewriter
    2. Inspect the ribbon for damage
    3. If the ribbon is silver, it is exhausted and must be replaced
    4. If the hammer has been striking in one place, there will be a clear area near the center of the ribbon.
    5. Turn the colored knob on the left side of the ribbon cartridge counter-clockwise to advance the ribbon a small amount. Replace the ribbon if it will not advance.
    6. Re-insert the ribbon
  3. Turn on the typewriter, insert a piece of paper into the typewriter and type a few letters
    1. Did the hammer move forward?
    2. If the hammer moved, did the ribbon advance with each keystroke?
If the hammer did not move or the ribbon did not advance, the typewriter will require service. If the typewriter still does not make an impression on the paper, your typewriter will require service.

Hammer won't strike

1.If your unit is not printing check the ribbon cartridge to make sure it has not run out.
2.If the ribbon appears silver or gray install a new cartridge. Also make sure the ribbon is advancing in the cartridge.
3.Next make sure the black lever in the center of the carriage is pressed toward the paper. If not, press the black lever toward the paper to lock the daisywheel into place and reset unit by holding down the "CODE" key, while holding the code key down press the "REST / Q" keyand release both keys.
4. Try typing. If problem still exists contact an Authorized Brother service center. You may do so at 1-800-284-4357 or by visiting our website.

Good typewriter, but you may not ever find the part you need unless you get lucky and find one at a garage sale.

The return clutch torque limiter is off or broken. If you take the right dust cover off it is on the turning hub around the middle of the typewriter. a small spring about 1.25 inches long with a hook on the end. I have been fixing these for 35 years. good luck. Lawrence

Types wrong characters

If the typewriter is typing letters or symbols that you do not type, it is usually because the Pitch Selector is set to "PS". The pitch selector is on the left hand side and has the numbers 10,12, 15 and PS. Place the selector on 10 or 12 and you will be OK.
Also, check to make sure your printwheel is installed properly. Remove it and put it back in to make sure.

Another thing you can try is to clear the memory. To do this, turn off the machine. Place a piece of paper in the machine sideways. Hold down the MAR REL key and while holding it down, turn on the machine. Wait 2 seconds, then let go of the key. The typewriter will start typing. Shut the machine off after about 15 seconds. Then turn it on as usual. This will clear the typewriter's memory and unexpected charaters should not happen anymore.

Make sure the knob for the platen (roller) is tight. Hold the roller and turn the knob to tighten.
