My Brother ML 100 typewriter does not print because the film ribbon does not advance while typing. It keeps striking the same spot on the ribbon and therefore, no typing appears on the paper. If I remove...


I've had several of these ribbon cartridges do this. You might get lucky and get it freed up, but I rarely did. Look in the windows of the cartridge and see if the ribbon is not wound evenly...if it isn't you can try gently tapping the cartridge on a flat surface to attempt to even out the ribbon on the spool. If you are not successful, then replace the cartridge. I had mine for almost 10 years and the cartridge was always the problem. Otherwise the typewriter worked flawlessly. Good luck.

Ribbon will not advance, so keeps typing in same place.


I've uploaded a pdf with the instructions that came with my typewriter to install the ribbons at YouSendIt.com. The link is good until November 29, 2011. If you'd rather I upload this elsewhere (Flickr or something), drop a note here and I'll see it.

Ribbon does not advance but wheel does turn when


You are in the overstrike ribbon mode. Code and Period, comma, or slash will get you out of that mode.

Ribbon will not advance


mark the ribbon where it turns, where there is a pin of the typewriter passing through the ribbon,mark it with a white marker.
and type something, if it doesnt turn, you know the machine has a problem.
or try everytime pressing on the ribbon, if it works you know the ribbon is coming up, check if the correction ribbon is placed good.behind the correctable ribbon.

The ribbon is not moving for each new letter being typed. Its very slow so when you are typing a word it just keeps going over the same spot on the ribbon.


I'll try thisagain use the code key with one of these 3 keys ,.
. , or / this will take you out of the uverstrike ribbon mode.

The ribbon doesn't advance at all? Try turning the ribbon by hand. If it is really hard to turn, or doesn't advance when you turn the knob (make sure you turn it in the direction of the arrow), then the ribbon is defective and you just need to get a good one.
If the ribbon turns easily, the leave the ribbon off, type and watch to see if the black knob on the left of the ribbon plate (the place where you put the ribbon), that turns the ribbon, is moving.
Also I have found that some brands of ribbons simply do not work on this machine. If the ribbon and the ribbon drive is working, try a different brand of ribbon.
