Either you have a special printwheel or the spoke on the printwheel is broken or bent try a new printwheel.

When I push the letters, wrong characters are showing up.


This is a daisy wheel typewriter. Either:
1. The daisywheel is for a different model.
2. The daisywheel is inserted incorrectly, IE upside-down, or if it is in a cartridge the wheel is in the wrong position when the cartridge is inserted. It might have had a little stop in it to prevent this that has worn out. You might be able to move it around to the right position by aligning that stop before inserting the cartridge.
3. If you can still buy those daisywheels, get a new one... maybe Ebay.

Can a IBM wheelriter 6 repair when the G andH will not work


Replace the Daisy wheel cartridge, pull back on the small red top lever and it should rotate the print hammer back exposing the Daisy wheel cartridge, lift out and replace with new one, push the print hammer back forward till it latches and captures the new daisywheel. Turn unit on and let it initialize, try typing, it should be OK. Examine old daisy wheel you will find the G and H segments are probably missing.

You have to buy an Arabic printwheel and install it.
To insert the daisywheel:
1. Open the top cover.
2. Pull the lever toward you to release the daisy wheel lock.

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!

Wrong letters typing


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.....

Brother ML100 Typewriter:All of the sudden, it just won't type. It seems the 'hammer' doesn't hit the daisywheel. We've replaced the daisywheel, corrective tape, ribbon and still it goes through the...


Ok,there could be two possibilities ,1, The daisy wheel may not be seated in properly. Of course I assume that the print side of the daisy wheel is facing the platen and that when the typewriter is switched on the print unit makes its customary re-setting motion and that the daisy wheel spins around at the same time. if this does not happen make sure that the lock-in lever for the daisy wheel is pushed home.. I am sure that you do all these elementary things so the only other possibility is the the hammer seleniod is not fully functioning and would have to be re-placed....Good luck!
