Changed the typewriter ribbon because it snapped in two. At first the typewriter would not do anything and was beeping and the "store", 1 1/2 and 3 lights were on. I oiled the carriage as...


do you have a printwheel in this machine (round grey disk with "fingers" evenly spaced around it with the charachters on it)? If not - there's your problem. you can repair the ribbon with a small piece of tape (no wider than the ribbon. stuck to the backside (shiny) of the ribbon then turn the ribbon until the taped part goes into the cartridge a ways. if the ribbon is moving ok and you still have a printwheel installed, make sure the ribbon is not getting caught in the printwheel.

I have a brothers sx-4000 typewriter, i recently bought new ink ribbon. But for some reason my typewriter still does not print the letters at all. I know my typewriter is still good, I dont know why it...


There are two things that people mess up when changing printwheels and ribbons. Is that the ribbon is not in the guides properly. The other is that the latch the holds the type wheel is not locked in the forward position.

Brother AX-450 Electronic typewriter


Hellooo.
2 thing come to mind you may check.
First check the ribbon cartridge to see if it is empty..These are usually a one time ribbon...and has to be replaced when empty.
2nd make sure the cartridge is snapped in properly and seated, and also the printwheel lever must be snapped (pushed forward) in order for everything to be aligned. if the typewriter has a correction tape (white or clear) make sure it is not interfering with the ribbon.
Lastly the ribbon drive may be broken or out of adjustment. a minor repair.
Hope this helps...
