There should be either a switch or a coded feature that is set to "delay" print usually you have to hold the code key down then press the key button (probably one of the number keys)under the feature that says delay.

I've hit a wrong key and now it won't print what I am typing it just moves along the line

Just hit the mode key until TYPE, on the display, is highlighted. There are 3 modes, TYPE (where the machine functions like a normal typewriter), L/L (Where what you are typing shows up in the display and then prints when you hit the "RETURN" button. You can make corrections, in this mode, before you print the line, which saves using your correction tape.) and STORE (which is used to store memory information, such as format and phrases.)

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.

Look for a delay print mode - probably a slide switch. If not, check out to see if there is a code or control button. Usually works by holding the code button in conjunction with another key. ie: Code and "D". Model # would be a help.

TA Royal 503 typewriter with a print wheel that is not aligned

Hi - there a many reasons why this happens. Try these first. Replace the ribbon. This might have become tight (faulty) and make this happen. Next clean the main rod that the carriage goes back and forth on, it sometimes get very sticky. Then place a couple of drips of oil on. This should work wonders? Best John ex OEM trained mechanic
