Check to see if their is a keyboard selection switch on the keyboard.
It may have a setting that says international, symbol, standard, etc.

When I use the Brothers GX-6750 Typewriter its printing with BOLD Letters and Underline I can I correct this problem??


Above the top row of keys are words that indicate the code or alt function of these keys. By using the alt or code key and this key you should be able to turn on or off these functions.

Goto BROTHER.com, click on support, poke around and you will find a manual.

Pitch will not go off, can not set margins because of this


Pitch is the spacing between typed letters.
Pitch should be set (either 10 or 12 ) as indicated on the printwheel. I'm pretty sure that there's no "off" setting. To Set:

For 10 pitch: Press and hold [ALT] while pressing [$/4] key.
For 12 pitch: Press and hold [ALT] while pressing [%/5] key.

To set margins beyond current settings: First release margins.
Backspace or spacebar to the current margin
Press and hold [ALT] while pressing [^/6] key.
[ALT] and [&/7] for left, [ALT] and [*/8] for right

hope this helps

Loosen the screws that hold the silver guide, one on each side of the carriage. Adjust to touch platen with 2 sheets of paper installed. When you reset next time it will reset to the right letters.

Be sure the pitch selection is correct. If it is set to PS when using a 10,12 or 15 pitch wheel it will select incorrect letters.

Not typing the correct letters


The ML-300 needs to be reset each time the Daisy Wheel is removed or replaced or if the Keyboard Switch changes position. According to Brother, if this is not done the typewriter will print incorrect characters. Try these steps: 1) Open the Top Cover. There is a lever directly behind the Daisy Wheel. Pull the lever back towards you. Remove the Daisy Wheel by pulling it up and out. 2) Verify that it is the Standard Daisy Wheel that came with your machine and not a Symbol or International Daisey Wheel. Write down the Pitch (10, 12, or dual pitch 1012) printed on the wheel. 3) Reinstall the Daisy Wheel (the plastic top ear goes to your right.) Push the lever (step 1) forward. 4) Press the ALT key plus the PITCH key and the number 1 key simultaneously. Verify the Pitch setting is the same as is printed on the Daisy Wheel. 5) Press the CODE key plus the RESET key and the letter Q key simultaneously. This will reset the typewriter mechanism and align (or time, in technical terms) the carriage mechanism. Check if the typewriter prints correctly now. If still incorrect, perform these additional steps. 6) Verify the three position Keyboard Switch (inside the top cover, on the right side, at the bottom) is in the I=Standard position. The other positions are: II=International and III=Symbol. 7) If the Keyboard Switch is in the correct position, slide it to position III and then back to I. (This will clean the switch contacts in case they are dirty and not making good electrical contact. 8) Press the CODE key plus the RESET key and the letter Q key combination again to reset the typewriter mechanism. Check if the typewriter prints correctly now. If still incorrect, the only other things I can think of is that: 1) an incorrect Daisy Wheel is installed that does not work in the ML-300. Brother sell a "B type" Daisy Wheel with two plastic ridges/raised slots below the center of the Daisy Wheel (viewed with the raised top tab on your left.) The B type are incompatible with your machine. 2) the typewriter has failed and needs repair.
