Question about Brother ML-300 Typewriter
While attempting to install a new ribbon, the typing mechanism 'popped up' and would not snap back down with new ribbon installed. I powered unit off in an attempt to reset the location of the typing unit. When I turned the unit back on it is making a beeping sound and will not stop. The typing mechanism is locked at the far left of the unit. I cannot install a new ribbon. Any ideas?
Typeing goes to far left and wont come back when you turn on just clivks there a few times like it wants to go farther and beeps until you turn it off. none of the keys will do anything mine is really a 300m pretty old compactronic electronic typewriter

Have you simply pushed the carriage back to the middle? If it is like the ML100 (it looks the same) you can just push it over ...with the pwoer off. Then put in you new ribbon. And this time, when you turn it on, it is the new ribbon that hits a switch on the underside of the keyboard, located to the upper left. If you do not have a ribbon installed, it will travel all the way to the left, and beep, beep, beep, beep. ,,,, The switch is hit with the ribbon housing.
