The Brother portable typewriters are pure junk. No longer suported by Brother. Next time spend a little more money and purchase a Nakajima typewriter.

When you type, each character you strike actually types another letter.


first try turn typewriter off, (button on left panel toward the back), then turn it back on, and while hold down the CODE button, press RESET key, the whole print head will move and reset

if that doesn't work, power off again, open the cover, release the lever to the Daisy Wheel, and inspect that Daisy Wheel - mine has a bent forward letter, and another letter was kinda stuck to the side of another letter... I gently fix both letters, put the Daisy Wheel back in, firmly lock it in place with the lever, close the cover... and voila, it works like a charm.

While you have it open you might want to dust (use the cleaning spray can duster)... You wouldn't believe what I found in my typewriter... Good luck!

If that doesn't work, I would replace the Daisy Wheel.

Our Lexmark 1000 typewriter is not printing in the usual bold,black print we're used to just recently. We have installed a brand new plastic tape - #1380999 and see no improvement. It appears the...


Make sure the platen (roller) is pushed down all the way. It must lock.
Also, see if the ribbon is feeding properly, characters should be evenly spaced on the ribbon. Other possible causes ..solenoid pad or selection plate, neither of which you can do yourself.

Change font size on my bother ML 100


A typewritter is not like a computer. It is a mechanical device, that works by pressing an embossed letter in the daisy wheel through a inked tape into the paper.
The only way you can change either the font type or the font size is by buying and replacing the daisy wheel by another one with different font type/size letters.
To get to know more about your typewritter and accessories that might still be available to it, download Brother ML-100 Typewriter User's Manual
Click on "Go to View/Download Page" and in the new page click the "View/Download" button.
Look for page 16 (last page) of the manual for a list of cassette daisy wheels.

I have a really old SD 660 and I no longer have manual. It is printing great but it is not typing correct letter for example when you type a it prints the letter p and so on?


Remove the printwheel check for bent spokes, look for debris in that area, try it without the correction tape, check that the correction tape is dry not tacky, also check to see if the pitch selection isn't in PS proportional space. If allis good the homing pawl spring is probably broken, you need a tech.

The keys will not type the letters they are labeled with.


Do you have the daisy wheel cartridge inserted correctly? The "ear" on the daisy wheel cartridge should always be on the upper right.

If that doesn't fix it .....Try doing a daisy wheel reset by Pressing [CODE] + [RESET]. This will properly index the daisy wheel.

I have a Brother WP-2000 word processor and when I changed the Daisy Wheel the letter typed is not printed and another letter or symbol is printed. How do I align the daisy wheel so this does not happen


Turn the typewriter off, remove the daisy wheel.

USUALLY there is a small rectangular slot in the daisy wheel that points up.

Insert wheel and turn on.

Make sure your spacing is NOT set to PROPORTIOAL SPACING

I downloaded the manual from http://www.devicemanuals.com/downloadguide.php and then, following the instructions there, I removed then re-inserted the daisy wheel. This solved my problem. Perhaps it had somehow gotten out of adjustment. At least, it is something to try if you haven't tried it already.

Not typing the correct letters


The ML-300 needs to be reset each time the Daisy Wheel is removed or replaced or if the Keyboard Switch changes position. According to Brother, if this is not done the typewriter will print incorrect characters. Try these steps: 1) Open the Top Cover. There is a lever directly behind the Daisy Wheel. Pull the lever back towards you. Remove the Daisy Wheel by pulling it up and out. 2) Verify that it is the Standard Daisy Wheel that came with your machine and not a Symbol or International Daisey Wheel. Write down the Pitch (10, 12, or dual pitch 1012) printed on the wheel. 3) Reinstall the Daisy Wheel (the plastic top ear goes to your right.) Push the lever (step 1) forward. 4) Press the ALT key plus the PITCH key and the number 1 key simultaneously. Verify the Pitch setting is the same as is printed on the Daisy Wheel. 5) Press the CODE key plus the RESET key and the letter Q key simultaneously. This will reset the typewriter mechanism and align (or time, in technical terms) the carriage mechanism. Check if the typewriter prints correctly now. If still incorrect, perform these additional steps. 6) Verify the three position Keyboard Switch (inside the top cover, on the right side, at the bottom) is in the I=Standard position. The other positions are: II=International and III=Symbol. 7) If the Keyboard Switch is in the correct position, slide it to position III and then back to I. (This will clean the switch contacts in case they are dirty and not making good electrical contact. 8) Press the CODE key plus the RESET key and the letter Q key combination again to reset the typewriter mechanism. Check if the typewriter prints correctly now. If still incorrect, the only other things I can think of is that: 1) an incorrect Daisy Wheel is installed that does not work in the ML-300. Brother sell a "B type" Daisy Wheel with two plastic ridges/raised slots below the center of the Daisy Wheel (viewed with the raised top tab on your left.) The B type are incompatible with your machine. 2) the typewriter has failed and needs repair.
