Question about Brother SX-4000 Typewriter
Something else you might check, I was having same problem. Make sure the Daisy Wheel Lock Lever (check the description that comes in the guide) is locked in place, i.e., push it forward to lock. It is the black thing that sticks up on the right inside the correction tape. I did this and words started appearing. Hope it helps.

Check to be sure that the correction tape is in properly and tight. Then make sure that the ribbon (and correction tape) are between the two metal "fingers" and the cardholder (which is the metal thing that holds the paper close to the platen right in front of the ribbon) Is the ribbon moving? You should be able to hold the ribbon up and see each letter on the ribbon. Also make sure the printhammer is locked forward. You should not be able to just reach in and take the printwheel out without the ribbon in place. The only other thing I can think of, is the ribbon got twisted some how. The dull side should be towards the paper.
