Brother ML100 Lift-Off Correction Tape won't lift off

I have the actual Brother replacement lift-off correction tapes (3015) for my machine--they are maybe 3 years old, but they don't lift off the ink--are they dried out? I tried actually hold them in position to make sure position was not the problem, and I tried both sides, neither was was any ink lifted off.

Correction tapes DO have a shelf life, Also make sure the ribbon is moving and very important and this may sound dumb, but I have seen it that the ribbon is not a correction ribon. Are the spool turns orange or yellow? should be. Blue is multistrike and will not correct. Don't know the shelf life of ribbons but they do loose the ability to correct.....Good luck try new supplies..

Lift off tape


Does the tape lift up far enough for correction? If so check to be sure the dull side of the tape is facing the paper. Then be sure you are using a correctable ribbon, the feed wheel should be either yellow or orange. DickyO

This is soooo lame but I cant remember how to put the correction tape in.... :~)


As you face the machine, the full spool goes on the left side of the printwheel carriage and the takeup (empty) spool goes on the right. Be sure that the shiny side of the lift off tape faces AWAY for the paper. The matte side is what does the lifting.

Hope this helps.

Correction Tape


Two possibilities, one the correction tape is twisted and the wrong side is .facing the paper. The shinny side should be facing you, the dull side facing the paper. Second possibility you must make sure the ribbon is compatible with the correction tape. There are 2 types of ribbons. A correctable one (orange or yellow knob) and a multi strike (blue or purple knob on ribbon cartridge). The lift off correction tape (orange or yellow spools) only works with the correctable ribbon and the cover up correction tape (blue) works with the multistrike ribbon.

Correction tape


To replace the correction tape:

1) use [SPACE BAR] or <<-¦ to move the carrier to the centre of the platen
2) open the top cover
3) remove the cassette ribbon (if installed)
4) pull off both spools, pressing against the correction tape with your thumbs. Bring it back to a position parallel with the platen and lift it up and out.
5) Pass the new tape through the left guide, behind the ribbon guide, and out thropugh the right guide. The rough (stick) side of the tape should face the platen.
6) Attach the feeder spool to the pin on the left
7) Attach the take-up spool to the pin on the right
8) Turn the take-up spool counter-clockwise until a small amount of white tape has wound around it
9) Replace the cassette ribbon and close the top cover
10) Press 'spider web' key +// to move the carrier to the previous position.

Hope this helps.

How Do I replace the film ribbon and the correction tape?


The ribbon just lifts up and out, you need to look at the lift off tape closely and install the new one the same way then snap a new ribbon cartridge in place.

Make sure that the correction tape is place in the guides one on each side small metal guides, remove ribbon to see, it should be behind ribbon guide (closes to you). Dry lift-off tape only(#3015)
