Hi

If the printwheel is in correctly then the most likely problem is the printwheel pitch selector could be set to either 15 pitch or proportional spacing. Look for a keytop that says pitch and make sure that it is set to either 10 or 12 pitch.

Good Luck

I am cosidering purchasing a Brother AX430 as it is cheaper than AX100 is there much diference and how old is it. Can you obtain printing and correcting ribbons.


I am not a big fan of Brother T/W's. They have more problems than most and parts are hard to get.
I would suggest a Wheelwriter they are very serviceable, parts ans supplies readily available and they are reasonable.

How do u correct mistakes on a Brother AX100


When you make a mistake press the correction key normally marked with an X and pointing left. If your doing that and it is going thru the movements you may have very old supplies or the correction tape may be in with the wrong side facing the paper.

My typewriter is a Smith Corona Word Smith. I cannot get the daisy wheel to align


From the manual of Sr Smith Corona WordSmith 100:

Changing The Print Wheel
1) Move the print carrier to the center of the platen using the SPACE or BS
key.
2) You will see a lever on the right side of the carrier. Pull this lever toward you and
lift out the daisy wheel.
3) Place the daisy wheel into the slot with the characters facing the platen.
4) Push the lever back into position.
5) Press the CODE + = (SETTING) key.

Here is the link for the manual:

My typewriter doesn't type..won't display letters, but keys work.


alot of the brother t/w's have 2 cam assemblies under ribbon holder. 1 operates the print hammer and 1 operates the correction ribbon lift. sometimes these will hang or lockup. sometimes turning on and off a few times will take care of it, but sometimes it needs to be worked on by a t/w tech. if you look when you type a character, most likely the print hammer is not firing or it is striking the correction ribbon instead of the black ribbon.

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.

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.
