Question about Brother SX-4000 Typewriter
Not seeing this typewriter is hard to troubleshoot.
First, if the black platen roller has many indentations due to a lot of use, these platen has to be dressed.
To dress it, this means it has to be removed and buffed. To do this one needs a "Wet-Dry" sand paper, "Fine Grit" 320 or 400. Wet the paper, and sand it like a piece of board. You may not get all the indetations out but it will be much better.
Clean it with water only, and Dry.
Before inserting the roller check the plastic guide or metal if they have it, for gummy edges. The ribbon and correcting tape goes up and down and they rub against these edges. They have build up of gummy stuff, if you can clean it completley off, you will get much reliablilty on the typewriter. Less ribbon snagging.
Most people think the supplies are the issue, but in reality, most problems are the ribbons and correcting tapes are snaging on this card guide.
Other problems with ribbons not advacing can be competitive supplies, but not seeing the machine it is difficult to isolate the problem.
Mechanical linkages (binding or broken)in the ribbon assembley can cause these types of problems, ribbons not advancing.
Also, a circuit board can cause these types of problems irratict printing images. Not an easy problem to isolate.
These types of solutions need to be applied then see how the end result works out. If it does not correct the problem, then the next area has to be isolated, due to lack of information provided about the problem.
