Display Mode doesn't work

I want to set it to Line-by-line processing so I can type in Display Mode, but when I follow the manual instructions and press ALT + Operate nothing happens. There is no arrow on the display under Operate Auto. It's blank. Help.

I've hit a wrong key and now it won't print what I am typing it just moves along the line


Just hit the mode key until TYPE, on the display, is highlighted. There are 3 modes, TYPE (where the machine functions like a normal typewriter), L/L (Where what you are typing shows up in the display and then prints when you hit the "RETURN" button. You can make corrections, in this mode, before you print the line, which saves using your correction tape.) and STORE (which is used to store memory information, such as format and phrases.)

How do I download brother SX-4000 electric typewriter?


If you are asking how to download to a computer file or a storage device, there is not a way without a major modification to your hardware (commonly known as a HACK to the device). Brother did not include a way to download from memory to a computer file.On the other hand, if you want to print what you have on the LCD screen you are typing in display mode. There are 2 typed of display modes (Line by line, and Auto) The way to print in display mode is;

  1. Press return if you are in Line by line.
  2. Type a complete page with and the machine will add the return when you reach the Right Margin.radarron_1.jpg

To determine what mode you are in, on the right side of the display you will see the operate section (see attached diagram) . If the triangle is pointing up you are in "Auto Return", if it is pointing down you are in "Line by Line" mode. If you don't see a triangle it should type as a normal typewriter (each letter as soon as you type it). To toggle through the modes hold the ALT key and press the OPERATE key. The keys that are activated by the ALT are color coded (same color as the ALT key) and are across the top of the keyboard.

Brother GX6750 typewriter correcting on wrong line


It sound like either the operator is turning the roller (platen) to see where you should correct..or the linespace mechanism is turning the roller from the line of type.Perhaps the detent (by the line space selector lever is set to 0 instead of 1, 1 1/2 or 2

The line of type is important that is stays and not drifts. Tighten the platen knob if the screw in..right to tighten left to loosen.
Hope this helps

Types random letters


If you cleaned the printwheel home sensor and found no obstructions, I would first try a different wheel before going any further, sometimes they become damaged.
