Question about Brother ML-100 Typewriter
I have a ML100. I have been using it for about 6 weeks. Shortly after changing the ribbon I began having correction problems. It would correct the error but the wheel did change any longer without doing control/Q. It would then reset and work fine til the next error. This went on for a week.
A few days ago, without making an error to require "correction" it stopped typing the letters my fingers were typing. This caused me to hit the correction key and then control/Q.It then worked correctly few two to three sentence before going back to typing odd letters, numbers & symbols. I have tried changing the correction ribbon, taking the ribbon out and re-putting in, & I even tried taking the wheel out and puting it back in. I am at a loss. Can you help, before I have to tell my boss that I killed her new typewriter. If you need an email you can use email@example.com (work) or firstname.lastname@example.org
I called the Brother's help desk and was given the following advice -- take the wheel out and inspect for breaks or bends on the metal "spokes". If you find any replace the wheel. I couldn't find any, so I was told to replace the wheel and then press controlQ.
After following the instructions, my help desk person asked if it was typing correctly, I tried a few words and told her that they printed correctly but was striking each letter twice. She said the problem was solved, and to call back for any other issues. I hung up and half way through a title it (the original problem) started again. My boss plans to return the typewriter for another typewriter. This is how she will fix the problem.
Thank you for your interest
