When you turn on the machine (or press [Code]+[Reset}) the print head moves to the right side, the print wheel spins, and the ribbon jumps up and down, that is the machine resetting its self.

If a reset does not work the reset tab may be out of alignment. I would

  1. Power it off and then turn it back on and test to again.
  2. If it's still typing the wrong or unreadable letters then turn off the power, open the lid. On the bottom of the case there is a metal frame on the right side of the frame you will see a small metal tab pointing towards the middle of the machine. When the machine resets its self, it uses that tab as a reference.
  3. That tab is easily bent which causes the reset to be wrong. Most people can bend it by hand, DON'T use a pliers! The tab can break off completely. It does not take much pressure and it does not need to be moved very far at all. Just nudge it towards the back (or the front) power up and test it. It might take a couple of tries to either direction to get it right. Be ready to turn off the power if when the print head resets. If you bent the tab too far the tab will not enter the print head correctly.

This reset tab most often gets out of alignment by a child playing with the machine, but if a foreign object is in the machine when the print head is moving.

MacBook Keys type incorrectly. I can't unlock my computer because the keys are all screwed up. This all of the sudden just happened and I don't know what's wrong.


You could try an external keyboard to get the password in, but it's also very possible that the cable for your keyboard is loose. It's worth it to open the case and make sure the keyboard cable is seated. I had a Toshiba go crazy like that and I found the cable partway out when I opened the case

My mjkluiop keys are typing 0123456-. Other keys are typing working incorrectly also. I can only get the correct letters by holding down the Fn key. How do I correct?


the number lock is on. you have to hold down the Fn key and look closely at the other keys and look for one that has a tiny picture of a calculator, pressing it with the Fn key should restore it.

Not typing the correct letters


The ML-300 needs to be reset each time the Daisy Wheel is removed or replaced or if the Keyboard Switch changes position. According to Brother, if this is not done the typewriter will print incorrect characters. Try these steps: 1) Open the Top Cover. There is a lever directly behind the Daisy Wheel. Pull the lever back towards you. Remove the Daisy Wheel by pulling it up and out. 2) Verify that it is the Standard Daisy Wheel that came with your machine and not a Symbol or International Daisey Wheel. Write down the Pitch (10, 12, or dual pitch 1012) printed on the wheel. 3) Reinstall the Daisy Wheel (the plastic top ear goes to your right.) Push the lever (step 1) forward. 4) Press the ALT key plus the PITCH key and the number 1 key simultaneously. Verify the Pitch setting is the same as is printed on the Daisy Wheel. 5) Press the CODE key plus the RESET key and the letter Q key simultaneously. This will reset the typewriter mechanism and align (or time, in technical terms) the carriage mechanism. Check if the typewriter prints correctly now. If still incorrect, perform these additional steps. 6) Verify the three position Keyboard Switch (inside the top cover, on the right side, at the bottom) is in the I=Standard position. The other positions are: II=International and III=Symbol. 7) If the Keyboard Switch is in the correct position, slide it to position III and then back to I. (This will clean the switch contacts in case they are dirty and not making good electrical contact. 8) Press the CODE key plus the RESET key and the letter Q key combination again to reset the typewriter mechanism. Check if the typewriter prints correctly now. If still incorrect, the only other things I can think of is that: 1) an incorrect Daisy Wheel is installed that does not work in the ML-300. Brother sell a "B type" Daisy Wheel with two plastic ridges/raised slots below the center of the Daisy Wheel (viewed with the raised top tab on your left.) The B type are incompatible with your machine. 2) the typewriter has failed and needs repair.
