SOURCE: old typewriter Brother DELUXE 800 : ribbon reference ?

This is what you are looking for:

Brother Typewriter Ribbon spool black and red SC-20BR-BRO Compatible
Brother Typewriter Ribbon spool black and red SC-20BR-BRO Compatible
Brother Typewriter Ribbon spool black and red SC-20BR-BRO Compatible
The typewriter ribbons for use in Brother manual typewriters are usually all the same. What matters is the size (diameter and hight) of the spools.They differed only in that they were available in different colours (usually black or black and red) and in different materials: some ribbons were made of nylon (cheaper) and other made of silk (more expensive and higher quality) .
Maybe some old and good stationer's (papeterie) still carries them or has some in stock.
Or else you may want to contact the customer support service of Brother, in France, for advice on where to find them in your Country.

Ribbon does not advance with each letter that is typed causing some letters to be faint

There is a chance that you are in overstrike ribbon mode.

Replaced typing ribbon, now correcting ribbon will not work. Does not pick up

Be sure that the new ribbon is fresh, and that the knob is yellow or orange. If you had the correction tape off that mit has the dull side towards the paper.

Many brother type writers have two cam assemblies under ribbon holder. One operates the print hammer and the other operates the correction ribbon lift. sometimes they gets stuck or lock themselves up. turning on and off a few times will take care of it, but sometimes it needs to be worked on by a 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.

Let us know if you want to know something more else please accept the suggestion.

Thanks for contacting

Can I change the font on a typewriter the model is sx-4000 brother typewriter.

Brother used to offer a dozen or so different printwheels for their typewriters; now they apparently offer only two. Go to and click Accessories under "Other Products." Pick SX-4000 from the list of models, and click Go, then click Accessories on the next page.

You'll get a list of ribbons and stuff, including #411 Brougham 10 printwheel (probably exactly what's already in your machine). At the bottom of the list is SK100, a Supply Kit that includes 3 ribbons, 1 correction ribbon, and 1 Script printwheel. I didn't see any other wheels available, and I didn't see the Script wheel, except as part of this kit, but the kit costs only a few bucks more than a wheel alone.

Correction Ribbon

If the machine is making allthe correction movements, be sure the correction tape is installed with the dull side facing the paper.
