I just finished replacing mine..You must first remove the ribbon for the typing, this simply lifts off. Then you must place the side with the corrective tape on the left side and the empty end on the right. While doing so, make sure that the ribbon of corrective tape is being placed around the knobs( one on each side) to hold in place. Then feed through and wind up till all the orange has disappeared then replace the Typing ribbon and this should complete the replacement

First you must determine what spool is the take up spool, make a few corrections without the ribbon to see whitch one feeds, install the empty spool on that side and the full one on the other.

When threadind the L/O tape be sure the dull side faces the platen.

4. Pass the new tape through left guide, behind the ribbon guide and out through the right guide. The rough (sticky) side of the tape should face the platen.

I installed new correction tape, but there's too much play in it. It keeps unravelling. I have no idea how to tighten it up. When I turn the take-up spool, it just unravels it more without tightening...


Verify that you have installed the proper correction tape. The types of tape that can be used with this system are: Item 1030 - Correctable Film Ribbon, 1230 - Correctable Film Ribbon 2pack, 1031 - Multi Strike Ribbon, 1032 - Nylon Ribbon, 3010 - Lift-off correction tapes (to be used with 1030 and 1230 ribbons), 4010 Cover-up Correction tape (to be used with 1031 and 1032 ribbons).
Make sure that the correction tape is installed properly. Pass the tape through the left guide, behind the ribbon guide and out through the right guide. The rough side of the tape should face the platen. Attach the feeder spool to the pin on the left. Attach the take up spool to the pin on the right. Turn the take up spool counter clockwise until a small amount of tape has wound around it. Replace the cassette ribbon and close the case cover. Press [CODE] + [RESET] to move the carrier to the previous position.

Brother ml100 standard - eraser tape will not erase, nor will it rotate to more tape. There is sufficient tape on the roll. Thank you


do you have it past the leader ( the red part)? there is a sticky place just before the actual corr. tape starts. you need to pull this loose before you put the tape on. it should turn counter clock wise. the tape should all be on the round spool, not the spool with the knob. if this info doesn't help - let me know. never seen the corr. tape stick so that you can't turn it by hand.
