    The typewriter just quit printing. I bought a new ribbon - so it is not the ribbon. It is like I touched the wrong key while I was typing and everything quit printing.

    I have the same problem. I was typing and then needed to correct one letter and when I tried typing again it would not type the correct letter. I'm not sure if the letter wheel is broken.

Has the ribbon reached the end? take it out and turn the knob and see if the ribbon is turning. If not, it is either defective or at the end.

My Brother ML100 is not printing what I type

Hammer sticking and typing incorrect letters (and or skipping letters): 1) make sure daisy wheel installed correctly. 2) hold down CODE key & Q (RESET) to reset wheel...if still not corrected 3) WD40 the hammer at the base & joints where moving parts are, keep typing until oil seeps in (this last one fixed it for me)

Typing light and inconsistant-top part of letter okay but bottom too light or not there: to left of hammer (at base) are 2 screws, I losened them and adjusted hammer to different forward and backward spots..finally found the ideal location where full letter printed and had the correct force it needed to print correctly.

Philips DCB146 NO SOUND!!

The answer is straightforward. The main power amp has gone. If you are lucky it's a single IC unit which you will find on a big heat sink. It might look like the one shown below.
You will of course need to de-solder it and resolder a new one. The type needed to replace it will be shown by the letters and number on the IC itself.

My ML300 types wrong letters and I have done everything that the manual says to do. Where can I buy a new daisy wheel? I think mine has one tine overlapping another.

We have wheels in stock they are 39.95 including shipping, however the problem may be a broken printwheel homing pawl and you will need a tech.

Is the hammer striking the paper? What letters print when you press a key? Can you determine if the printwheel is turning?
