Wrong letters typing

I was typing and needed to correct a letter. After that it would not type the correct letter any more. I think the daisywheel is broken. I took it out and now I cannot put it back in.

It sounds like you were using a non-brother correction tape,one that was too sticky and consequently too "slow" and during the correction sequence the fingers of the daisy-wheel got entangled with the tape. Make sure that the correction tape is of a "non-sticky" nature and then take off the correction and printing tapes. That way you will see better how the daisy-wheel is fitted . I will assume that you have an instruction book to show how this is done. before fitting the daisy wheel examine the fingers to see that none are bent or crossed over each other. If this is the case it is better to buy another one. bring your typewriter to the shop if this is the case and they will possibly re-fit the wheel for you. good luck.....

WE CHANGED THE DAISY WHEEL IN OUR MACHINE & WHEN YOU TYPE IT JUMPS SPACES & TYPES THE WRONG LETTERS


First, be sure you are using a Brother compatible daisywheel. Some other manufactures' daisywheels "look" the same but the charters are in different order, so they will not function properly.


After changing the daisywheel you need to d a reset. Hold down CODE and press "Q" the carriage will do a little dance and your machine should be good to go!

When typing wrong letters and numbers type


You might have a "proportional space" printwheel but the pitch selector is on 10, 12, or 15 instead of PS. OR it is on PS but you have a normal print wheel. Try selecting different pitches. Another thing that causes that problem is sometimes the ribbon or correction tape gets caught in the printwheel.

The bottom of some of the capital letters is not printing correctly.


The letters on the Daisywheel have slightly curved faces to match the curvature of the paper around the platen and the hammer will contact the letters and apply pressure to the top, bottom left and right depending on where it is adjusted. Test the machine by typing Capital MWMWMW and also /////// along with the rest of the alphabet including gggyyyqqqppp. The solution may be as simple as replacing the Daisywheel (may be worn from use). If all of the letters strike more heavily on the top than the bottom, the hammer may be adjusted closer to the paper which will apply more pressure to the bottoms of the letters. Also the face of the hammer could be worn and need replacement. If the Daisywheel is in good shape, you might try adjusteing the hammer position, but it can be tricky to get perfect.

Types funny symbols instead of the number I


The typewriter will print the incorrect letter, or the face of the hammer if it does not spin properly to the correct position. 1. Turn the machine offf for 15 seconds and turn ON, or Depress MODE RESET(the Q key). This will rehome the Daisywheel.I If it prints correctly for awhile then looses its' position, check for ribbon or correction tape interference with Daisywheel movement. If it does not print correctly as soon as you start typing, remove the Daisywheel and inspect the spokes to see if any are bent. Reinstall the Daisywheel and power ON. If the Daisywheel has a bent spoke or two, you can try to straighten them, howvever the cause of bent spokes is a concern. While typing, carefully watch the print hammer movement. It should always return to the same position and not move towards the paper until a letter is pressed. If it does not come to rest properly, the hammer is not in proper timing and may enter the Daisywheel while it is spinning to the character, thus causing damage to the Daisywheel or causing it to lose homing. .The hammer cams would require adjustment ore replacement. If bent spokes is a persistent problem, make sure to get the hammer problem repaired before buying a new daisywhel.

Brother gx-6750 is typing incorrect numbers and letters. how do i fix?


Removed and reinstall the Daisywheel. Inspect the ribbon and lift-off tape to eliminate interfering with Daisywheel spinning. Make certain the daisywheel has no bent spokes. Type slowly while carefully watching the hammer come to rest after printing. If you see the hammer moving towards the paper after a print cycle, the hammer is probably causing the Daisywheel to lose homing and will need to retimed or have the hammer cams assembly replaced.
