Question about Nakajima AE-830 Typewriter

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.

Wont recognize the primary master IDE. Do I need to replace the MB or is this a known problem. Have tried diff drives and cables...


Don't wish to down a motherboard manufacturer, as it isn't good business, but I would use a SOYO mobo for a frisbee.

You've indicated that the primary master IDE isn't recognized?
Is this by looking in BIOS Setup?

Have you tried to set the harddrive's parameters manually in BIOS Setup?
Set the Cylinders, Heads, and Sectors?

The Cyl, Heads, and Sec information for each harddrive can be found by looking at the label on the top of the harddrive.
If it isn't listed go to the harddrive manufacturer's website, and use the model number off of the harddrive, to find said information.

Example using Seagate harddrive,
Barracuda, Model number ST3500830A
500GB.

A) 16,383 Cylinders
B) 6 Heads
C) 63 Sectors

Also depends on what flat ribbon IDE cable you're using.
With a 40-wire flat ribbon IDE cable the primary harddrive plugs into the Middle of the cable.
With an 80-wire flat ribbon IDE cable, the primary harddrive plugs into the End connector of the cable.
(Both styles of IDE cables have 40-pins. Actually 39 as 1 is not used)

http://www.mikeshardware.com/howtos/howto_connect_ide_hd.html

(Look under the heading - Connecting Your Hard Drives)

Plus you may want to check the continuity of each flat ribbon IDE cable's wires.
Use a multimeter set to Ohms.
Due to the age of these cables they can go bad.

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

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...
