Try unplugging machine for 1 minute. Plug it back in and turn on machine. If it still doesn't work, it is probably a bad board.

Display will not turn on


Display might need service, but my best hunch is that you can still type with it. Also, reset your left & right margins!

Problem with the line spacing on my brother sx-4000 typewriter. The spacing wheel is not moving the paper down to the next line. I've moved the lever on the right side back and forth to see if it...


If all the settings are right and it feeds with the platen knob the plastic gear on the index mitor is probably broken the part is about 25.00 plus installation.

How do I download brother SX-4000 electric typewriter?


If you are asking how to download to a computer file or a storage device, there is not a way without a major modification to your hardware (commonly known as a HACK to the device). Brother did not include a way to download from memory to a computer file.On the other hand, if you want to print what you have on the LCD screen you are typing in display mode. There are 2 typed of display modes (Line by line, and Auto) The way to print in display mode is;

  1. Press return if you are in Line by line.
  2. Type a complete page with and the machine will add the return when you reach the Right Margin.radarron_1.jpg

To determine what mode you are in, on the right side of the display you will see the operate section (see attached diagram) . If the triangle is pointing up you are in "Auto Return", if it is pointing down you are in "Line by Line" mode. If you don't see a triangle it should type as a normal typewriter (each letter as soon as you type it). To toggle through the modes hold the ALT key and press the OPERATE key. The keys that are activated by the ALT are color coded (same color as the ALT key) and are across the top of the keyboard.

Whem keys are typed incorrect display of characters. how do i correct it?


REMOVE & RE-INSTALL THE DAISY WHEEL, MAKING SURE THE HOMING PIN IS IN THE HOLE NEAR THE HUB OF THE WHEEL. IF IT STILL DOESN'T PRINT THE RIGHT CHARACTERS, THE PRINTWHEEL MOTOR OR MAIN BOARD COULD BE BAD. TOSS IT AND BUY ANOTHER MACHINE
