Question about Brother GX-6750 Typewriter
I dropped my GX-6750 Brother typewriter and cannot get daisy wheel to line up correctly. I have tried code and reset and looked for the switch on the inside right as you suggested but all to no avail. This is a brand new machine and my boss is gonna kill me! PLEASE HELP!
Thanks in advance,
Each time you turn on the typewriter it locked the daisy wheel to its home position. This is how the control mechanism remember each pin position of the daisy wheel. However if there is any problem with the mechanism it may unlock from its home position and therefore type the wrong key.
Before you try my suggestion make sure the daisy wheel is OK. It should move freely inside its casing and each striking pin should be straight and evenly position between pins. The best way is to try with another daisy wheel and if it is OK chances are that your typewriter is OK.
After initial turn on check that the hammer head align correctly. You do this by manually pushing the hammer towards the striking pin of the daisy wheel against the platen roller. The hammer head should accurately align at the center of the striking pin. If it is no good take the following steps:
a) Loosing the two screws left side to the hammer head (just loosen do not unscrew completely.
b) Move the hammer head left or right to align correctly towards the striking pin.
c) Once you got that you need to screw back the two screws while maintaining the new positon.
d) It is important to maintain the distance between the hammer head and the striking pin while doing that.

Turn oFF the typewriter, take the ribbon out.....use the lever on top to release and remove the print wheel cartridge. Lightly rotate it to see if it will move and reinsert the cartridge. snap it back into place.
Turn on the machine, the typewriter should move the carrier to the left and reset the printwheel....if it is snapped back properly.
