Striker not working. New problem. Carriage move left

Thanks your your answer the other day, concerning the striker not moving. But have new problem. When I was taking typewriter apart, I tried to be careful to not let the ribbon cable come out of slot on circuit board. But it did. And eventhough I carefully put it back in, the printer assembly will only move to the left, till it goes to the end and the gears begin to grind and bump. Then it stops, and an alarm beep sounds. I have reset this ribbon cable back into the circuit board slot 10 to 15-times, and still the same thing. I looked at it carefully, magnifying glass, and cannot see anything wrong. And I took the keyboard apart, and still nothing looks wrong. Yet, it acts as if the keyboard is not hooked up. Secretaries lost manual. Wanted to see how to set margins. Any ideas? Thank you

    Somehow, we got 2-different threads going, on same typewriter, which may have been my fault, from not knowing exactly how to post replys and questions.

    Anyways, on other thread, I tagged it as fixed, and then added the daisy wheel was deformed. After posting that reply, I sat here with small needle nose and gently preyed letter tabs till they were normal. And now complete typewriter fixed. Secretaries thanked me real good, and now I Thank You, again. (I may tell them I found "expert" help from you, later on, "if" it breaks again and they call me to fix it again. ha ha) Thanks

Refresh me is this a Brothers. If it is the keybord has to be lock down in the clips. The carrier home switch is locateded in the keyboard not the machine frame. Chances are the cable is ok it sounds like this switch is not being it when the carrier returns home...

What is the best way to align a 1994 F150 door after installing new hinges

There no adjustment at hinges only bushing can be replace, but on the pelier is where the striker at, that's the part where the door latch latches to, with a torx tool you can loosen it to align to the door latch. the striker will move up, down, in and out, not much but it will adjust.

Bosch Brute Breaker

What age is the machine? If it is fairly new it might just need to be run a while for the grease to loosen up. If it is older you will need to make sure it has enough grease. These tools don't need a great deal of grease, but too little will soon be thrown about and disperse too much. Another problem with these is if the inner cylinder, that moves up and down to create the pressure for teh striker, has a hairline crack, it can be quite hard to see when the part is dirty. When running though air will leak out and you will loose hammer action but still have plenty of vibratiion. Another thing to check is to take the piston/cylinder and striker out and hold it facing down. The striker should slide out slow and steady. If it falls out too fast then the cylinder and/or striker is worn. You may be able to rectify this by applying a bit more grease. If it doeesn't fall out at all then there is a build of grease behind the striker causing a vacum holding it all together. You can solve this by pushing the striker in a little way, and leaving it standing for an hour or so with cleaning solvent on top. It should work it's way in and help release it. It may still need to be 'persuaded' out a bit aswell.

Striker Sticking When Erasing. Brother ML100 Typewriter

Sounds like the gears you cleaned may be dry and sticking, spray a little WD40. or that gear on the right side is still out of time. I think there is a spring clutch in the gear train which may be bad. One secret to repairs is to perform the same actions that you want the typewriter to do by hand and watch closely. You may see something not movving, or moving slow that under power you won't see.

Striker Not Working. New Problem, now.

One very important thing with Brothers typewriter, If the keyboard is not locked in place under the catches, it will not complete the home cycle. In other words when the carriage returns to the left it will cycle and then beep usually continually. The reason the carriage stop time switch is attaced to the keyboard not the side frame. You might look at that....Could be other problems too. keep in touch
