My broter typewriter wp1400d stopped working while typing. It now starts for a few seconds and starts giving beeps and gets jammed. Nothing works.

Check the Printwheel for bent spokes, look for debris in the P/W area, try it with the ribbon and nL/O tape removed.

Cant get the typewriter to print

Be sure the the ribbon has not run out or is jammed. You can test this by rotating the colored knob on the top of the ribbon cartridge in the direction of the arrow imprinted the housing.

If not, do you hear the click of the hammer striking the printwheel? If not you may have a defective main board or hammer solenoid.

Old brother word processor/electric typwriter WP-3550, any idea how to get it to type? is there a command? any place i could find a manual?

Hit the TW/WP key on the top row of the keyboard. TW/WP stands for typewriter/wordprocessor. This toggles between using the word processor manually (like a typewriter) and using the monitor to enter text and then automatically print it out (like a word processor on a computer). My guess is, you do not have the monitor that came with the word processor. I believe it will still work once you press the TW/WP button. Hope this helps.
