Open the upper cover, remove the platen (roller) there is a latct on each side that has to be pressed down, after the platen is out thetre are two latches one on each dide just inside the the sides of the case pull them to the front, flip the margins inside and lift the case, give the motor a little push, if it starts get a can of WD40 and spray everything inside the T/W that moves.

My IBM Selectric II typewriter skips part of a letter when typing envelopes and going over the overlapped thickness. Even repeating the letter doesn't help.


That particular key is not hitting the paper flush as it should. Carefully try adjusting it in the direction of the miss.

Selectric II Pitch-shift lever won't change from 12 tom 10


If you haven't changed the pitch for a long time the lubricants dry up, if you have some WD40 spray it in the slot inthe margin bar where the L. & R. margin levers ride. Give it a few minites to work.

Shut off won't turn back on


how long have you waited since it shut off? it may be overheating. if you've waited for a while and it still won't power up, you may need to test the power supply. if you don't have a power supply tester and most people don't you can remove it from the case and take it to any pc shop. they may charge you a couple bucks but most shops won't do that. if it's bad it will need replaced obviously, if it's not let us know :)
