Question about Brother WP-1700MDS Typewriter

2 Answers

I have a Brother Word Processor WP-7700CJ. I seems as if the return button is stuck in the down position. This happened about 6 months ago and I took the button off and it stopped. But now there is no button on it and it is doing it again. How do I fix it?

Is there GEOS within?

Maybe you can reach the middle of the "open" area with the tip of a pencil?
(To see if it works also without the cap)

Midde seatbelt in back is stuck and will not loosen tension

Same problem here...belt stuck and pulled so tight against the top of seat when in the upright position, I would have to keep seat in "down" position for fear the tension might cause permanent creases in leather. Had brother loosen the bolt located at the base of seatbelt where the back of seat and botton split (hard to get to and tough to loosen) which seemed to have solved issue but a few months later after using it to strap in niece's car seat it happen AGAIN!
Frustrated, had brother completely remove bolt rendering belt useless (fortunately backseat is almost never used anyway.)
I'm going to check for any safety recalls since this doesn't appear now to be a fluke or isolated problem w/ just mine.

If you find a fix or recall please let me know & I'll do the same.

Years ago we translated a book using the brother WP 2200 Word Processor. Storing the data on floppy disc. Today the PC's will not recognize the format. I would like to reprint this book. Any ideas how to...


As far as I know, there is no freely available software that can do the job.
However, there are a few converters that cost some money, which might be worth considering if you have several disks to convert.
If this is a one-time thing, just for this book, I would suggest contacting PIVAR, a company that specializes in converting files from old equipment.
Their website is:
Good luck :)

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.
