Question about Brother ML-100 Typewriter
Thanks again for your answer on the striker not coming forward. But have new problem, keeping me from getting to the striker problem. Before I took it apart, keyboard would control things like it should, return, space bar, etc. Being careful, the ribbon cord to the keyboard still slipped out the slot. When I put it back in, the daisy wheel assembly goes to the left, the drive gears bump and grind a couple of seconds, then stop turning, and a signal beep happens. The only way to stop the signal is to turn off power. I have ttied and tried to put this keyboard ribbon cable in, 15-20-times, and still, the print assembly goes to the left, gears grind few seconds, then alarm. I am positive the ribbon is in good. No visible tears or rips in it. Took whole keyboard apart, and all looks good. Yet, it acts like it just does not know where to stop at, like no more margin sets. Any ideas?
I did get the top correction tape cover off striker assembly and looked at cam that moves striker, and also at solenoid in bottom. Nothing seems out of place or missing. And, for all I know, it may work, "if" it would go back to traveling to left margin and stopping, and act right. It just seems like it is same with or with out keyboard ribbon attached, striker assembly continues to left till gears rum out of teeth to turn on, then grinds and jumps few seconds, then stops, and beep alarm sounds.
Secretaries lost instruction manual. I was looking for how to set margins, and what ever else I could find. Thanks for your help.
One very important thing with Brothers typewriter, If the keyboard is not locked in place under the catches, it will not complete the home cycle. In other words when the carriage returns to the left it will cycle and then beep usually continually. The reason the carriage stop time switch is attaced to the keyboard not the side frame. You might look at that....Could be other problems too. keep in touch
