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.

The ribbon is not moving so the letters keeping typing onn the same spot I changed the ribbon but it still does the same thing

You may be in the overstrike ribbon. Try CODE period, comma or slash. (I can't ever remember which) to get out of it.

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.

Press the Code button and the Q/Reset button at the same time and the wheel will spin and go back to the correct place.

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

There is a clutch drive that releases the hammer to strike. Probably needs to be replaced. Unfortunately, probably not worth repairing.
