Problem with illegible type

I replaced my ribbon and am still having a problem with the type not being clear. It looks like the ribbon isn't advancing to keep up with the type so it is using the ribbon over and over creating spotty type. Any suggestions? Kim

    I have a Nakajima AE-800 with the same problem. The dealer suggested the same fix and took the typewriter in. It is still doing the same thing.

I called the 800-809-7138 number and the tech told me to press the code button and the period key and it removed the multi strike (?) mode. Thanks for checking back!

Have a olivetti 1000S typewriter, put in a new cartridge but when I type no printing appears on paper, any ideas


Put a multi part form in it, if it prints on the copies then you have a ribbon issue. If so be sure the ribbon is installed properly and that it isn't twisted (the dull side should face the paper) Try it without the Lift off they sometimes steal the impression.

I have an Olivetti Lettera 32. I put a brand new ribbon in it and when I type, the letters are coming up too light on the paper. How do I fix this? What needs to be done?


First thing is to be sure the ribbon is feeding, watch while you type. if not you may have a universal spool ribbon that isn't quite that universal. Wind the ribbon onto your old spools.

We have a wheelwriter 6. We changed the ribbon and now it won't type. I'm guessing we hit something that changed it to "stencil"?


There is no stencil on a WW. Put a Multipart form in it , if it types on the carbons thr ribbon isn,t feeding of lifting, if it dosen't type on the carbons the plastic print solenoid cap is probably broken. We sell them for 20.oo includes shipping and instructions.

Hello,


Hi

Many brother type writers have two cam assemblies under ribbon holder. One operates the print hammer and the other operates the correction ribbon lift. sometimes they gets stuck or lock themselves up. turning on and off a few times will take care of it, but sometimes it needs to be worked on by a tech. If you look when you type a character, most likely the print hammer is not firing or it is striking the correction ribbon instead of the black ribbon.

Let us know if you want to know something more else please accept the suggestion.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.com

How do I replace the ribbon in an IMB typewriter


press down the ribbon rewind lever on the left side of keyboard until all of ribbon is wound around left spool. Remove used ribbon spool and replace with new one. Guide the end of the new ribbon through the guides to the right take up spool - looks like a bow tie. Slip the metal end of ribbon in slot and you're ready to type.

Brother EM430 white ribbon broken


do you see any impression of letters on the paper when you type? if you do the ribbon not lifting or not driving. If you do not see an impression the print hammer is not firing. try to lub it with wd40 or light Wait oil. some brother typ's have a rubber bumper under the print hammer that deteriorate & need to be replaced

Diagram to change ribbon cartridge


The cartridge just snaps on, printing half letters may be caused by the ribbon being folded over on itself or not moving look at the ribbon toward a light you should see each letter clearly thru the ribbon

Hellooo.
2 thing come to mind you may check.
First check the ribbon cartridge to see if it is empty..These are usually a one time ribbon...and has to be replaced when empty.
2nd make sure the cartridge is snapped in properly and seated, and also the printwheel lever must be snapped (pushed forward) in order for everything to be aligned. if the typewriter has a correction tape (white or clear) make sure it is not interfering with the ribbon.
Lastly the ribbon drive may be broken or out of adjustment. a minor repair.
Hope this helps...
