Question about Brother SX-4000 Typewriter

1 Answer

Just recently, our typewriter ribbon ran out and we ordered a new. It arrived and it works fine. However, the correction tape that we already had installed no longer "corrects." It rotates from one spool to the other; the tape moves up and down; and we have tried using both sides of the correction tape. Nothing seems to work. What are we doing wrong? Can you help us?

The ribbon you got is either very old or it is a non correctable one. The knob should be yellow or orange. The other possibility is that the nlift off is installed wrong the dull side should be towards the paper.

CORRECTION TAPE


correction tapes will not work with multistrike ribbons. You have to use a correctable ribbon. If you can find a white out tape, it will work with multistrike. What model typewroter do you have?

Correction tape not working


The ribbons and lift off tapes both get old and change composition, get a fresh ribbon and L/O tape then try it.

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)
