Smith Corona Typewriter SL460: The Lock button is flashing and nothing works.

Posted by on

  • solidaye Oct 17, 2008

    Thank you, I spent a little more time on this problem and found that if I removed the lift-off tape cartridge and just installed the ink cartridge, the lock button doesn't flash. It seems the lift-off tape cartridge doesn't let the ink cartridge sit all the way down. I don't know why, I am using genuine Smith-Corona parts with the proper part number.



    Anyway, for now it works...just have to use liquid paper for errors.



    Thanks again.

The Lock button might be stuck. If someone was typing too fast, I believe it can "Overload". You may have to dis-assemble to see if button is stuck. I worked on one of these a while back.

There is nothing wrong with my smith corona typewriter. I just want to know what is the exact dimension (in inches) of the cartridge or the ribbon the matches to my SL 580. I saw an online store in amazon...


The Smith Corona SL460/470/480/500/560/570/580/600/SL Series all use the same ribbons.

Note that:
  • a Correctable Film Ribbon [original Smith Corona ref. 21000 (Dual Pack) or 67108 (6-Pack)] should be used with a Lift-Off Correcting Cassette [Smith Corona Ref. 21060 (Single Pack) or 67116 (3-Pack)];
  • a Multi-Strike Ribbon (Smith Corona Ref 21025) should be used with a Cover-Up Correcting Cassette (Smith Corona Ref.21065)

Smith corona SL480 instruction manual. I just need a manual so I know how to use the features built into the typewriter


How to Use a Smith Corona Typewriter A Smith Corona typewriter can be either a manual or electric model. Whichever model you have, the typewriter works in basically the same way. If you are familiar with a computer keyboard, you can type on a typewriter as the keys are laid out exactly the same. Unlike a computer, typing mistakes are harder to correct and, unless you use carbon paper, you will only have one copy of any document you type.

How do i reset the wheel on a smith corona sl460 electronic typewriter? the correction ribbon keeps coming out of place


The typewriter has a spring at one spool to keep the correction ribbon taut. If that spring is broken or out of place, the ribbon will always get in the way of the wheel.
If both ribbons are correctly set tight between the wheel and the paper, the typewriter will reset the wheel at power-on.
Some models reset the wheel every time you close the cover. You can see and hear it if it does.

Lock Button Stuck


This usually indicates no ribbon. Check to be sure the ribbon is properly installed or put a new ribbon in.
