If you are not in KBII or a language mode the printwheel homing pawl is probably broken. You need a tech.

How do I delete all formatting?


Your problem is the printwheel. The "u" is probably broken. The lines that you see are the print hammer hitting the page instead of the character. All of the letters are on the printwheel and they are on the ends of little fingers. The tips sometimes either get bent but they usually break. Replacing the printwheel should resolve your problem.

When typing wrong letters and numbers type


You might have a "proportional space" printwheel but the pitch selector is on 10, 12, or 15 instead of PS. OR it is on PS but you have a normal print wheel. Try selecting different pitches. Another thing that causes that problem is sometimes the ribbon or correction tape gets caught in the printwheel.

The flywheel from my brother ml300 typwriter came off and i don't know how to put it back on


I assume by "flywheel", you are referring to the "printwheel" which is removable from the typewriter by unlatching the print hammer mechanism by pulling the black lever on the right side of the print hammer towards the front of the machine. To install the printwheel, drop the printwheel in its cartridge with the letters facing the paper, then push the print hammer assembly towards the paper to the latched position. Turn on machine, and the printwheel will spin and "home". If printwheel homing is not correct, repeat above procedure with slightly more pressure when latching the printwheel. (The printwheel must latch on to its drive spindle securely). Good Luck

What do I do when I strike one letter and another is printed?


First make sure that the the pitch selector on the keyboard is set to the correct pitch for the printwheel , if there is a pitch selector on this typewriter. Also try taking out and reinstalling the printwheel then turn the typewriter off and back on so it can rehome the printwheel.

Typing the same letters


check to see if anything is interfering with the free rotation of the printwheel, ribbon or corr. tape if improperly installed may do this. with the mach. OFF move the printwheel by hand. if it moves ok, and it still won't print wright, you will need a repair shop to fix this problem.

Some uppercase letters are not printing correctly


make sure ribbon and corr. tape are in properly and not interfering with the free movement of the printwheel. ribbon and tape should be between the two metal fingers and the cardholder. make sure the two fingers are not bent down into the printwheel. check the "fingers" on the printwheel to make sure they are straight. with the printwheel out of the machine, push the printhammer forward and release it to make sure it snaps back freely. if these seem to be okay then it could be a problem with the p/w motor or motherboard, and would need professional help.
