Brother SX-4000 Typewriter - problem w/ ribbon

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.

Thanks!

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...

I have a brothers sx-4000 typewriter, i recently bought new ink ribbon. But for some reason my typewriter still does not print the letters at all. I know my typewriter is still good, I dont know why it...


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.

With power off, remove the ribbon and look down inside the carriage assembly on the right hand side. Look close and you will see a white gear, you rotate that gear, either way about 1/2 a revolution. Power on and try typing, if it works you can put in the ribbon and go, if not, rotate the gear somr more.

Typing wrong letters on Brother SX-4000


Try hitting [CODE] + [RESET] at the same time to reset the cartridge. Make sure the cassette is installed correctly.. the "ear" on the cassette should always be on the upper right.

Dear Chruchbells,

You may be right about typing on the coreection riboon. Tell your friend to take out the ribbon cartridge and reinsert it. It needs to click all the way down, or else if it is at the ink cartridge level, it will type white!
