Question about Brother GX-6750 Typewriter

2 Answers

I am having an issued with my used typewriter that I just bought on Ebay which supposedly "works perfectly". Everything works fine until I press the shift key when I want to capitalize a letter and from then on, none of the keys type correctly. For example, an "m" will type out as an "r" or some other random letter or symbol. It just continues on with all keys not typing out correctly. What would cause this once I press the shift key?

Your machine is working properly, I am sorry to tell you that your machine does NOT have that function.

This is the difference between Shift Lock and Caps Lock.

1) Shift Lock is the traditional upper case used since the oldest mechanical typewriters

2) Caps Lock (what you want) works like a computer, where you get upper case Alphas and numbers.

Brother does include this feature on some models, but I am sorry to say not yours.

If this helps you, PLEASE log back on to this webpage and leave comment. It's nice to know that I am helping someone and not just wasting my time.

    As far as you problem it's one of two things. First try a reset, hold the CODE key and Press the Key that has RESET above it. If the problem comes back after using the shift key again then it is a circuity board problem.

    I hope the reset works for you!

Check the print head/wheel to be sure it is securely in place.

TMI.

This is strictly a remote control failure.

Read this procedure to possibly fix the remote:

They also sell replacement remotes.
Or look on eBay, usually much cheaper if available.

Another thing would be to make sure the receiver's remote eye isn't picking up infrared from anything else in the environment.

Sounds like a power supply or a connector came loose in transit. If you know how to remove the case look for staples, paper clips etc. on or around the power supply and PC board.

Samsung yp-z5 scroll panel stopped working.


This is a common hardware fault with this player. I guess it is why the model has been replaced.

The cheapest solution is to buy a faulty player from ebay - around £10 including postage and replace your faulty one. Make sure to check the faulty one does not have the touchpad fault.

It is straightforward to replace the touchpad.
