Most Brother typewriters have a flat correctalbe tape cartridge. YOu insert the cartridge with the typing wheel snugged right up close to the correction tape. Put the tape over the wheel, and snap it in place.

Is there a correct side to the correction tape and will it dry out. This maybe why mine does not work. model # sx4000


The tape must be installed with the dull side toward the platen. Yes they do get old and don't work.

TYPE WRITER DISPLAYS BUT WONT TYPE ANYTHING


There are many "WONT TYPE ANYTHING" symptoms and reasons, like:
is the ribbon installed? Is it installed correctly? Is the carriage moving?

Some description of your concern would be of great help.
I guess you don't have the User Manual.
Here you'll find the PDF version of the manual.

Good luck.

Warning sound, didn't move


Check to be sure the correction tape isn't tangled in the print wheel. If it is or was check the wheel to be sure it isn't damaged,
Then try it without the correction tape.

Installation of correction tape on Brother typewriter Sx4000


I installed the supply reel first, with the tape coming off the top of the reel toward the first guide, made a partial twist to the right to go over and around the first guide toward the take-up reel and then installed the take-up reel so that the tape goes over the top of the take-up reel toward the operating person and is then wound counter-clockwise around the take-up reel.

INSTALLING CORRECTION TAPE ON A BROTHER SX4000


1) Use the [SPACE BAR] or [BACKSPACE] to move the carrier to the center of the platen.
2) Open the top cover
3) Remove the cassette ribbon, if installed
4)Pull off both spools, pressing against the correction tape with your thumbs. Bring it back to a position parallel with the platen, and lift it up and out.
5)Pass the new tape through the left guide, behind the ribbon guide, and out through the right guide. The rough (sticky) side of the tape should face the platen.
6) Attach the feeder spool to the pin on the left
7) Attach the take-up spool to the pin on the right
8) Turn the take-up spool counter-clockwise until a small amount of white tape has wound around it.
9) Replace the cassette ribbon and close the top cover.
10) Press [CODE] + [RESET] to move the carrier to the previous position.
