Question about Brother GX-6750 Typewriter

1 Answer

Correction Tape We initially were having a problem with the typewriter getting stuck and not returning so I took it apart and cleaned it out and found a paper clip stuck in it. I put it back together and now there is no problem with it returning, however the correction tape won't correct now. Every time you go to use it, it actually darkens the letters instead of removing them. And then sometimes there is a problem with the keys themselves, they are typing the wrong letters. I think I fixed that problem but the correction problem has baffled me, so any help would be greatful. Thanks in advance.

Check the way the correct tape is installed. I have seen people twist them around the guide backwards and the correction material is facing away from the paper. Also can you see the correction tape lifting up?

Smith corona typewrite is stuck on special characters

It sounds like your "code" key may be stuck down. See if it is lower than the other keys. Check for a paper clip or staple under the key. Depending on how the keyboard is made you might be able to spray contact cleaner under the key to get it unstuck. I would bend a paper clip with a small bend at the end (90 degree angle) and use it to gently move the key up and then use my finger to press it back down. Do this several times after spraying contact cleaner under the key. Hope this helps.

Carriage return stuck on left side when powering on

The first thing to try is to lubricate the silver rail that the carriage rides on. A few drops of a light oil ( sewing machine oil ) may take care of the problem. Turn machine off, apply oil and move carriage by hand back and forth. Turn back on and see if this took care of it.

The paper does not feed no matter the paper release position.

if you can't even roll it in by hand, there is something stuck on the paper pan. if it just won't feed when you hit the RETURN button, then the paper feed motor (plastic) gear is probably broken, there is a motor with a metal gear available but its hard to get the case off without breaking it, and to have it done costs almost as much as a new machine.

How do I take apart my Brother typewriter to remove a label stuck to the metal bar where the paper feeds in?

I wish I had one in front of me, but I don't. Brother used two ways of holding the Platen (big black roller in place. Open the top cover and look at the frame where the platen is held. You will likely see plastic clips holding the axial that runs through the platen (85% of brother machines have clips), or you will see that the axial runs directly through the frame. If you see clips just squeeze the tabs and lift up. Note which side has the gear, so that it is reinstalled the same way. If you don't have clips you will need to loosen the Allen screws holding the knob to the platen roller, and the roller will lift right out. If the label left any of the rollers sticky they must be completely cleaned before reassembly, Goo-Gone is a good product to remove gummy labels.

Best of luck, Ron

My ricoh CL 3500 keeps getting a Y paper jam.

There is something stuck in it. A small piece of paper, paper clip.

A friend of mine was having the same problem with a similar printer. I told him there was something in there. I took a look and found that a paper clip some how fell into the unit and was in a tight spot. Once removed the printer worked great.

It could be as simple as a little piece of paper, or a bit hard like a piece of paper wrapped around a moving part inside.

Remove platen on Swintec 8011 typewriter

I can't remember which models have which features, but some Swintecs have pop out plantens, and some don't. If it is pop out, you will find a plastic V clip in the frame of the typewriter through which the platen shaft passes on both sides of the typewriter and platen. Pay close attention to which side the gear of the platen is situated before removing to make sure you put it back on the same side of the typewriter. Squeeze the V clips and pull the platen up and out. When re-installing, make sure the metal paper table is in correctly by aligning the fingers on each side into their mounting guides, or you will have paper jams, paper feed trouble, and other issues. You can clean the labels out with something that will not leave an oily residue on the paper table, paper feed rollers, or the platen. Re-install the platen by aligning the V clips to the frame on each side, and press them down until they snap into place.

Car kit is on and i can't turn it off.

I would rub a piece of metal where you plug the charger in on the bottom. A paper clip seems to work well. This will reset the phone and should be ok. It worked for me when my phone got wet and was stuck in car kit mode.

Good Luck
