SOURCE: Typewriter won't return carriage

If cleaning and oiling the shaft doesn't work, the carrier motor is probably bad. Is there any noise when you hit return?

Probably a board or power supply. If you can get it to us i'm sure it can be repaired for under 150.00.

Sounds like a power supply or a connector came loose in transit. If you know how to remove the case look for staples, paper clips etc. on or around the power supply and PC board.

Printwheel in wrong. release the printwheel, make sure the pin is aligned with the slot on the hub and snap it back in. The printwheel should spin, then home out to the left margin, then it should be ok. Check to make sure no pedals on the printwheel are bent.

"Hammer" won't strike; printwheel won't turn; code key not workin


It sounds like the print solenoid cap is broken except for the printwheel not spinning. the caps are available for 20.00 including shipping and instructoins. The code not working may be a keyboard for a keyboard rebuild contact Geo. Beyers Co. @800-392-8085.

The flywheel from my brother ml300 typwriter came off and i don't know how to put it back on


I assume by "flywheel", you are referring to the "printwheel" which is removable from the typewriter by unlatching the print hammer mechanism by pulling the black lever on the right side of the print hammer towards the front of the machine. To install the printwheel, drop the printwheel in its cartridge with the letters facing the paper, then push the print hammer assembly towards the paper to the latched position. Turn on machine, and the printwheel will spin and "home". If printwheel homing is not correct, repeat above procedure with slightly more pressure when latching the printwheel. (The printwheel must latch on to its drive spindle securely). Good Luck

How do you reset printwheel?


The printwheel "homes" everytime the power is turned on. There are many causes of the printwheel losing it's homing during printing. Check that nothing is interfering with the printwheel spinning, like the correction tape, or ribbon. Type slowly and observe the movement ot the hammer to make sure the hammer returns to it's home position every time, if not the machine must be repaired (to retime the hammer cam) . You can removed and reinstall the printwheel to make sure it is seated on its' drive spindle securely. checke that the is no foreign material in the bottom of machine.

First be sure the printwheel is installed properly, and look for debris in that area. Put some light oil on the silver shaft that the carrier slides on (WD40 is good).

Could be the printhead is at the right margin. But, if you hit the return key and nothing happins, it could be a bad board, power supply or transport motor. When you turn the machine on, does the printhead move all the way to the left, spin the printwheel and move to a set position?
