Question about Brother EM-630 Typewriter

1 Answer

Brand new EM630

I have removed the internal packing pieces as directed. When I turn power on, there is a vibration and loud noise, then the display reads "CHECK PRINTER," which means nothing to me. Apparently nothing wlse will proceed until this is cleared.

There is a set of graphics on the instruction book that indicate the packing pieces that are to be removed. there was one more item that at first look seemed part of the mechanism and was not clear on the graphic. spoke to tech support for brother who told me what to look for, and how to remove it (white double spire-looking thing). once i removed this piece, the print cartridge was released to the left side of the machine and it worked just fine.

How loud should the IBM Selectric III typewriter be? I turn it on and I don't here anything. It was brand new, still in the shrink wrap.

You should hear the motor and the function keys should work index ret. etc. If it has been sitting for a long time the motor or power switch may be gummy.

When I turn on my IBM all he green lights on the rt. light up but nothing happens.

Not good. No beeps, No growling noise, no message on display? Probably a board or power supply. If you are gutsy remove thr PC board and look for debris on and under it.

Brand new typewriter. Set up according to

When turned on the carrier must move to the left side frame, where it seneses the LEFT limit, then moves towards the right and parks at the Left Margin Position. Your problem sounds like something is interfering with the carrier movement to the LEFT limit (could be packaging). Turn the power OFF. Manually move the carrier to the RHGHT. Look inside the machine on the left side to check for foreign materials. Also check that the ribbon, correction lift-off tape, and printwheel are installed properly. GOOD LUCK!

Does not boot up

Check if there is a foreign object inside the space where the ribbon mechanism glides back and forth. You also might want to inspect the ribbon mechanism yourself, again check for a foreign object. I believe that this might be your problem. Does this help?

Best of luck to you!

New typewriter

On the right side of the typewriter, just beneath the carriage (as you are facing the typewriter) there is a small metal lever which you need to push back. It is the carriage lock used to hold the carriage in place when it's being transported in the case.

New Typewriter not working

Look for any packing material that would hold the printer still during shipping. There also might be a screw from the bottom to hold it still. With the power off and you manually move the printer L-R?
