    In case anybody is still using this typewriter, I want to share how I solved this issue. I did alot of troubleshooting on my brother SX-4000 Electronic Typewriter before i fixed it. I could letters and numbers to type, but they were all in the wrong place after I replaced my ribbon. Finally, I had to take out the daisy wheel, several times, and turn it gently to reposition the letters. This was after I had hit Code Reset several times. I finally repositioned the daisy wheel into the correct postion and the typewriter began typing all the letters, numbers, and other marks, when pressed.

Different letters appear when typing a certain letter for example when typing letter s letter w will also appear


Hi,

I see that when typing in on the keyboard some letters appear as well like for "s' the letter "w" shows up as well.

Was there any liquid spilled on the keyboard? if none then you can try cleaning OFF any unwanted software on you computer, then perform a disk defragmentation on the machine just to have everything in proper order for the windows side.

After doing what was said above restart the computer and try the keyboard again if still the issue is the same, i suggest that you back up any personal stuff like pictures and emails if ever because reformatting the Hard drive and windows back to factory defaults will be next to see if the issue will still be the same after reinstalling windows back to defaults.

If the issue is still the same after reinstalling windows then this is going to be considered a hardware failure to the keyboard and replacing the keyboard will be the next best thing to be done.

Unless Liquid was the cause then the issue may differ if the motherboard was the one causing the letters to type in with other letters which is not common.

When you punch in the letter on top screen there is an option of how you want the letters to come up. the 2 top green bottoms will help you to choose.

It says somwthing like alpha, multi-tap, numbers. If you choose numbers and press # 2 will come up.
If you choose multi tap and press # 2 once letter A will come up, if you press 2 two times letter B will come up and so on. Once the desired letter comes up wait till the cursors stop blinking and it will move so you can time the next letter or you can move the arrow to the right for you to type the next letter.

If you choose Alpha (or the other choice left) and you press # 2 and all the crazy letters will come up, I undeerstand, if you see letter ok for A it will stay and you can go to the next letter, for the next letter you press # 3 you get letter Bor crazy letters for that key, you move the arrow cursor down and it will show you all the letters you have in that key, you can scroll dow and the press ok on the letter that you need. What happens is that the phone has many words for each letter you type and is helping you to make the words. This used to be confusing to me as well, If you play a little with the buttons you will get it. Try to set in for multitap, it is a little easier.

Look at the ribbon and see if the letters are on the very top of th ribbon. If so on the front of the carrier there is an eccentric screw for adj. ribbon height. Loosen the lock nut W/ a small 9/32 wrench and adj screw to raise ribbon. Be sure to check L/O with the underscore as you can get it to high.
