Ok,there could be two possibilities ,1, The daisy wheel may not be seated in properly. Of course I assume that the print side of the daisy wheel is facing the platen and that when the typewriter is switched on the print unit makes its customary re-setting motion and that the daisy wheel spins around at the same time. if this does not happen make sure that the lock-in lever for the daisy wheel is pushed home.. I am sure that you do all these elementary things so the only other possibility is the the hammer seleniod is not fully functioning and would have to be re-placed....Good luck!

During typing, daisywheel spontaneously readjusts itself and then the machine beeps and will not continue. Will it be expensive to fix? Ballpark cost?


Daisy wheel is kind of old school nowadays, you might have to go to a office supply store like staples etc, to possibly get it fixed

Turn the machine off for 10 seconds and turn back on. If the wrong characters continue printing, change to a new daisywheel. If problem persists contact your Authorized Brother Service Center.

Type printed is different to keys pressed occuring after a few words which are printed correctly


Look for bent spokes on the daisywheel, try it with the correction tape removed. Something is interfearing with the daisywheel.

WE CHANGED THE DAISY WHEEL IN OUR MACHINE & WHEN YOU TYPE IT JUMPS SPACES & TYPES THE WRONG LETTERS


First, be sure you are using a Brother compatible daisywheel. Some other manufactures' daisywheels "look" the same but the charters are in different order, so they will not function properly.


After changing the daisywheel you need to d a reset. Hold down CODE and press "Q" the carriage will do a little dance and your machine should be good to go!

EM-530 - suddenly the "j"


First, be sure you are using a Brother compatible daisywheel. Some other manufactures' daisywheels "look" the same but the charters are in different order, so they will not function properly.

If you have not changed the daisywheel, the next thing to check is that the wheel is correctly installed. The easiest way to check it is to remove and reinstall it. To do that;

1. Open the top cover.

2. On the right side of the hammer (the metal piece that strikes the daisywheel) there is a small lever (see attached figure). Pull that locking lever towards you to release it.

3. Remove the cassette that holds the daisywheel.

4. Reinstall it, making sure that you lock the lever towards the paper roller.

5. When you close the top cover the carriage (otherwise known as the print head) will move to one side and do a procedure known as "Homing."

6. Test the machine. If it is still mistyping, continue with the next part. Continued in part 2

Types funny symbols instead of the number I


The typewriter will print the incorrect letter, or the face of the hammer if it does not spin properly to the correct position. 1. Turn the machine offf for 15 seconds and turn ON, or Depress MODE RESET(the Q key). This will rehome the Daisywheel.I If it prints correctly for awhile then looses its' position, check for ribbon or correction tape interference with Daisywheel movement. If it does not print correctly as soon as you start typing, remove the Daisywheel and inspect the spokes to see if any are bent. Reinstall the Daisywheel and power ON. If the Daisywheel has a bent spoke or two, you can try to straighten them, howvever the cause of bent spokes is a concern. While typing, carefully watch the print hammer movement. It should always return to the same position and not move towards the paper until a letter is pressed. If it does not come to rest properly, the hammer is not in proper timing and may enter the Daisywheel while it is spinning to the character, thus causing damage to the Daisywheel or causing it to lose homing. .The hammer cams would require adjustment ore replacement. If bent spokes is a persistent problem, make sure to get the hammer problem repaired before buying a new daisywhel.

Brother gx-6750 is typing incorrect numbers and letters. how do i fix?


Removed and reinstall the Daisywheel. Inspect the ribbon and lift-off tape to eliminate interfering with Daisywheel spinning. Make certain the daisywheel has no bent spokes. Type slowly while carefully watching the hammer come to rest after printing. If you see the hammer moving towards the paper after a print cycle, the hammer is probably causing the Daisywheel to lose homing and will need to retimed or have the hammer cams assembly replaced.
