Maybe a manual will help. Go to BROTHER.COM, click on typewriters, poke around there you will find a down loadable manual there.

I am not able to type the @ symbol on my Brother typewriter. Model #EM-530. I have tried everything it is driving me crazy. Thanks for your help!!

If it is typing the alternate symbol on the key you are in KBII. The code key with the key in the top row labeled KBII will get you out of that mode.

Ribbon does not advance with each letter that is typed causing some letters to be faint

There is a chance that you are in overstrike ribbon mode.

Replaced typing ribbon, now correcting ribbon will not work. Does not pick up

Be sure that the new ribbon is fresh, and that the knob is yellow or orange. If you had the correction tape off that mit has the dull side towards the paper.

Many brother type writers have two cam assemblies under ribbon holder. One operates the print hammer and the other operates the correction ribbon lift. sometimes they gets stuck or lock themselves up. turning on and off a few times will take care of it, but sometimes it needs to be worked on by a tech. If you look when you type a character, most likely the print hammer is not firing or it is striking the correction ribbon instead of the black ribbon.

Let us know if you want to know something more else please accept the suggestion.

Thanks for contacting

Be sure the tape is installed with the dull side facing the platen. The tapes are readly available but be sure it is a dry L/O tape General ribbon T355 or equivlent.

No print - Brother EM-530

You need to take your ribbon and correction tape out and put them in again, something may have gotten crossed. I know I have done that before. (Sometimes one or the other is put in backwards)

If this doesnt work, you may want to try re-setting to the factory settings of the machine to see if that is your problem. Turn off the machine, hold the Code, Shift & Tab key all at the same time. Keep holding them down while you turn the machine back on. You will here a few rapid beeps. That lets you know it has reset. You will need to fix your margins and tabs to your liking again.

-If for some reason you reset and you get the wrong symbols when you type, change your keyboard setting back to "I" (lights at the top left should tell you if its under "KB" (Keyboard) I, II, or III) turn off for 10 seconds and turn back on. I hope this helps!

Correction Ribbon

If the machine is making allthe correction movements, be sure the correction tape is installed with the dull side facing the paper.
