Letters do not form on paper

The ribbon seems to be fine but somehow when the keys are pressed I only see a faded smudge of ink on the paper. Also, with all this messing around with the typewriter I seemed to have lost the original place where the correcting ribbon was suppose to go.

Seems like the ribbon may be cought in the printwheel of in front of it. Release the printwheel, make sure nothing is caught, and resnap it closed. Make sure the prinwheel rotates when it is first turned on or the proper character will not be struck.

Ribbon Smudge


The only thing I can think of is the ribbon is not threaded properly. (ex. in front of carrier instead of behind or vice versa)

Ink smudge on right side of paper


Chances are high that the process of clearing the jam has resulted in ink being released from the cleaning/resting pad area based over on the right hand side (where the printhead sits when not in use).
This waste ink has probable come into contact with the rollers and other parts over on the right edge of the paper.
You'll probably see this ink slowly fade out and disappear over time. If it doesn't however there's something effectively feeding things so check the resting pad for a loose tube, overflow, puddles, etc...
If there's anything like that, report back (preferably with images).

Thin vertical blue ink bleed line from bottom of Malaprop screen - Fades over time


Hello,

Yes, it's a screen problem. It could be a loose connection of the LCD and the motherboard or the lid lights gone bad. You can fix that by either resetting the connection of the screen and the motherboard or replacing the whole screen. You would need a technician to do that.

I have a brother GX6750 typewriter do not understand how to install correction ribbon


well, the correction ribbon is for erasing mistakes, it literally, pulls the ink off the paper, but you have to hit the correction button, the type writer will back up and pull the ink, but you would hear ait and be able to tell the diff. I think maybe you should check 1st that the ink ribbon is the 1 closest to you, and the correction ribbon is behind the ink ribbon- also make sure they are in the correct direction- ink side of the ribbon facing your paper- sticky side of the correction ribbon facing the paper- so its you, the ink ribbon and then the correction ribbon then the paper

Cartridge jamming & waste ink absorber full


The waste ink is your actual problem. This is an area of the printer devoted entirely to priming your ink cartridges. When it is full, you will see streaks and smudges on your printed paper.
Start your head replacement procedure by opening the lid of your printer, then disconnect the power. The primer waste area is usually located to the right inside area of your printer. This is a difficult area to access but not impossible. Be sure to wear some latex gloves before attempting this cleanup.
Isopryl Alcohol is a good cleaning agent for this and you will need some paper towels for the mess. Find an area with plenty of elbow room and place your printer there. Remember that this can get messy so the table should be covered with plastic or a garbage bag. My favorite tool for squirting the alcohol is squirt bottle (sprayers just melt down). Make sure the Ink cartridges are removed and the power plug is disconnected, then begin squirting this waste area liberally with alcohol. There will be a lot of ink at first so keep the paper towels ready and begin squeezing the ink into them by pressing down on the rubber primer plates. IF you are lucky, there will be a sponge in this same area that will be filled with the ink and your cleanup will go faster. Apply paper towls and alcohol until the ink colors start to fade then allow to dry, reassemble and do a test run. You cant get all the ink out so just get all that you can.

Ink smudging off paper


It means that the fuser is not hot enough to bond the toner to the paper. You should open the rear door and see if a paper has wrapped around the fuser roller, as when the temp is actually too cool it will shut down the printer. Photo paper is also too thick to be used in this printer and you should only be using standard bond paper.

Poor quality smudge and ink blotting marks in the centre of any printed document


Try performing a test by printing a test page from Tray 1 and open the top cover as soon as the paper is 60% inside. The paper would jam below the toner cartridge before it reaches the fuser. Remove the toner cartridge carefully and verify if the smudges occur. This would eliminate the fuser. If the print quality is fine, then you need to swap the fuser.

Laser Printer


When the paper is fresh out of the printer, does the ink that looks okay smudge if you rub it with your finger? If so, it means the fuser is going bad. Otherwise, it's probably a bad toner cartridge that's leaking toner onto the paper.
