What can be the solution's, I am typing the letters on the keyboard and it is printing all different characters on the paper -- is there a command set that should be cleared?


First pull out printwheel and see if the "spokes" are even and straight, Second try a new wheel, and third, on this Brothers, when you turn it on the carrier has to go to the left and you will hear the wheel turn and cycle to the correct home spot. Some times there is a arm that comes out of the left side frame that loosens up and throws the time off, check for loose bracket on left side. But a new wheel may solve the problem Good Luck.

It sounds like data is being received by the printer from an outside source.
Try disconnecting the printer from the computer system so it is a free standing printer. Power the printer ON and put in ONLINE if you do not get strange characters printing the print job is definitely from the computer system some place.

If you do not get the print jobs printing when the printer is disconnected from the computer system, it could be that the print jobs are being sent from the wrong driver or print queue on the system, you may need to try to identify who is sending the rogue print jobs.

Yeah, the only thing that can cause this is paper feed problems.

There must be either something loose in the paper feed mech (look for wobbling "tires") or there is still some paper or other foreign debris in the paper feed path.
