Question about Nakajima AE-740 Typewriter

2 Answers

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.

When I type half of the letters or numbers are printing


You didn't give a make or model but if it is an IBM wheelwriter press down firmly on both ends of the platen they do work loose.

The letters are not all printing on my label. It prints only parts of letter(s) and number(s) sometimes not at all . we just moved offices and I can't find the manual. I thought maybe it was the imprssion...


Some labels are very glossy and correctable ribbons don't stick well,
Try moving the impression to the hardest setting and setting it to bold print or get a lable with a matt finish.

there is a key that has BOLD printed under the letter on the key, or it may be printed above the top keys on the keyboard, hold down the code key and hit the key under where it says BOLD, or the key that has it on it. to take it off, do the same thing

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.

IBM Wheelwriter 30 series II - prints only half a letter


If it types only the top half yhe platen is probably not all the way in. Make sure the 2 black latches are lined up with the side frames then press down firmly on both sides of the platen.

Erronous letters or numbers


Under the ribbon there is a motor that drives the print wheel try to get some light oil on the front and rear bearings (wd 40 usally works well) its a little hard to get to the rear one.
