You probably have a broken plastic cap on the print solenoid plunger, they are available but a little tricky to install.

Why doesn't my new corrector ribbon/ink ribbon work? The wheel advances-nothing shows on paper.


Put in a multi-part form, type if the carbon is OK the problem is with the ribbon. Look at the ribbon if there is an impression on the ribbon but no ink transfer the ribbon is very ols, if there is no impression then the ribbon isn't lifting. THere ix a 2" black gear on the right side of the printer it should move easily if not wiggle it back and forth they get tooth for tooth with the drive gear.

Installed new ribbon and now the keys don't seem to be striking hard enough - nothing shows


The plastic print solenoid cap is probably broken. We sell the cap with shipping and instructions for 20.00.

Wheelwriter 30 Series 2


First off make sure the ribbon turns freely.Take off the ribbon and turn the ribbon wheel in the direction of the arrow and see if it turns smoothly. If it turns smoothly the ribbon motor is not moving or the gear is not moving. take off the ribbon and type. See if the black ribbon drive gear on the ribbon deck moves as you type. If not the motor is N.G. or the ribbon gear clutch spring is not grabbing the gear to turn it. Lawrence
