I assume this is a wheelwriter. If so push the blue lever on the rt. side of the ribbon to the rear and lift the ribbon and lift off out of the machine, seperate the ribbon and L/O. Attach L/O to the new ribbon, insert the two "feet" on the ribbon casstte into the slots on the ribbon deck and snap it into place.

Is there a charge for your information? If not, I'm trying to change the ribbon on my Selectric II and can't remember how to lift the ribbon to make the easy, not getting ink all over my fingers, change. ...

There are 2 levers on the right the grey one is for the correction tape anr the red one is for the ribbon.

Pull the red one towards you and to the left, this will raise the ribbon and move the ribbon driver out of the way. When installing the new ribbon be sure it is L. of the slacker finger on the L. of the ribbon.

New ribbon and can't get it to type

did you make sure that the end pieces are engaged into the brackets in the part facing you. Also if the correction tape is not loaded onto the ribbon prior to installing it, it will do that too.

Hope this helps, Denise
