Re: different letter appears from the one i've typed

Sounds like the wheel is out of alignment. I had this problem with the one I recently purchased for my daughter. Release the tension on the ribbon and head. Pull the wheel cartridge out and line up the letters. Put the wheel back and reapply tension. Repeat until it is aligned. Took me a couple tries to get it working, but its working and seems to be stable.

How do i get my Brother A X 250 Eletric Type writer to type the correct letters ?

"If your unit is not printing properly:
1.Ensure the ribbon cartridge has not run out of ribbon. If your ribbon appears silver or gray, install a new cartridge.
2.Ensure the black lever in the center of the carriage is pressed to therear towards the paper. If not, press it to the rear to lock the Daisy Wheel into place.
3.Reset the unit by holding down the [CODE] Key and pressing the [SHIFT]Key and the [WORD OUT] Key.
4.Release all three keys.
5.Try typing.
If the problem continues, your unit will need servicing. You can locate a Brother Authorized Service Center in your area:

When typing different characters appear. example: type the letter "t" an @ sign would appear. type the letter "j" a % sign would appear.

If you aren't in a language mode or KBII the printwheel homing pawl is probably broken. You need a tech.

Letters i type on key board come up as different letters on paper. example if i type the word see, it comes up and types j;;.

On the L. side of the keyboard is the pitch slide switch it should be in 10 or 12 not PS.

If it always types the same wrong letter you are probably in a language mode or the pitch is in ps. If the letter changes after you turn it off and on the homing pawl spring is bad you need a tech.

Typewriter printing different key than one hit

Check and see if the pitch selection is in PS.

The keys will not type the letters they are labeled with.

Do you have the daisy wheel cartridge inserted correctly? The "ear" on the daisy wheel cartridge should always be on the upper right.

If that doesn't fix it .....Try doing a daisy wheel reset by Pressing [CODE] + [RESET]. This will properly index the daisy wheel.

Different letters despite what I am typing...

look for kb1 and kb 2 or your pitch is selected at ps instead of 10 or 12
