Question about Typewriters

Brother Correctronic 40

No, after setting all night I still get no characters. The wheel moves, but the strike (whatever you called it) does not make contact with the rubber things. Yes, you are right, the thing is old, and if I can find another free/cheap one, I will replace it, but with 4 teenagers and 1 income, well...anyway yard sale day is today, maybe....

Gently push the hammer up to the print wheel, does the notch in the hammer line up with the dimple on the back of the printwheel characters? You will have to look real close.

How to install correctronic ribbon


Open top cover, small correction tape orange or yellow lift off is kind of tricky, left side goes on small spool holder feeding off the top and going around front of print wheel. by the way relaase the printwheel so it pivots back toward you, eaiser to see, correct tape goes in front of wheel and pivots very similar to left side. Correction tape has good side and bad side good side a matte finish should face away from you, this is the correction. Regular riboon just lifts up reom the front and snaps back in place. two little plastic tabs on back of ribbon case fits in two little holes in carrier. Hop this helps real hard to describe.just works...

Brother CE-70 typewriter. Was typing perfectly well. Over about 15 characters the impact on the print head reduced to nil. Although printhead appears to strike the daisy wheel the character does not strike...


Make sure that the ribbon is moving. If characters are piling up in the same spot on the ribbon you will get this problem. Easiest fix is to replace the ribbon. Many brand new ribbons can have a problem. If this dosent solve the problem it may be a mechanical problem with the mechanism that drives the ribbon, requiring a technician to repair.

Brother GX-6750 correctronic


Check the print wheel to see if any spokes are bent or missing, be sure that you have the proper correction tape (tack free) and that you are not in proportional space or have an international print wheel.

Brother Correctronic 40 Not striking


You’re right Brother authorized service centers are hard to come by and now that the one that I was working for went bankrupt I can’t buy parts any longer.

Let me see if I understand the problem. When you start typing it’s ok and as you continue typing it get’s lighter then it finally stops printing? If you let the machine sit like overnight it starts all over? If so what you need is a .20¢ rubber bumper used to lessen the hammer noise.

What happens is the rubber get’s sticky with the heat generated from use. I have tried to find a substitute (for the Brother part) and nothing I have found lasts very long. If you just remove the bumper the hammer makes a terrible racket (too noisy for more people), and I suspect if it were used without the bumper the hammer mechanism would rattle apart after a short time.

I know this can be repaired easily but not cheaply. The machine is old, it’s time to consider a replacement. Sorry!

Brother GX6750 typewriter correcting on wrong line


It sound like either the operator is turning the roller (platen) to see where you should correct..or the linespace mechanism is turning the roller from the line of type.Perhaps the detent (by the line space selector lever is set to 0 instead of 1, 1 1/2 or 2

The line of type is important that is stays and not drifts. Tighten the platen knob if the screw in..right to tighten left to loosen.
Hope this helps
