Question about Brother Office Equipment & Supplies
Changed my ribbon cassette but ribbon won't advance when I start typing. Thought I might have a defective ribbon cassette so I put in another one and same problem. Any suggestions? I've had this typewriter since Dec. 2004.
Make sure ribbon you have if for the typewriter you have. take ribbon off machine and type characters, you should see the small ribbon (black) part that turns the ribbon move. If not you have a problem in the printer carrier itself...

There are two things that people mess up when changing printwheels and ribbons. Is that the ribbon is not in the guides properly. The other is that the latch the holds the type wheel is not locked in the forward position.
