Skipping parts of the letters

When I type, only part of the letters print out or it is really faint. It does not help to type on bold. I've changed the ribbon and that does not help. Do I need a new printwheel?

More likely than not the type needs to be properly aligned. If it's out of alignment, it can result in the top or bottom half of the character typing faintly. Basically, the typebar is hitting the platen too high or too low. When it is properly adjusted (by a qualified repairman), it will type properly.

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.

Try re-installing the printer driver(s) first. If no luck, then un-install the printer completely, reinstall and try again. You may also have an issue with an incompatible driver with Office 2007. After reinstalling the drivers, try to print a test page and see what happens.

The PHOTO mode is for printing grayscale photographs. Printed letters using PHOTO mode may appear faint because PHOTO mode is optimized for halftones. See if there is a TEXT or LETTER print mode, and try printing on that setting. If printed letters are still faint, you may have to go into ADVANCED PRINTER PREFERENCES, and see if the TONER SAVE mode is on. If it is, turn TONER SAVE off. Also, try changing the DPI image density, or try other adjustments in the ADVANCED PRINTER PREFERENCES MODE.

Wong letters & numbers


I downloaded the manual from http://www.devicemanuals.com/downloadguide.php and then, following the instructions there, I removed then re-inserted the daisy wheel. This solved my problem. Perhaps it had somehow gotten out of adjustment. At least, it is something to try if you haven't tried it already.
