PUT THE CORRECTION TAPE ON CORRECTLY

How do I put the correction tape on? I need a diagram I think. I read the one suggestion offered, and I couldn't do it. I don't know where to thread the tape. I put it in front of the black one, I put it behind the black tape....
tell me please. I need to use the typewriter!
Thank you.

First, remove the ribbon. Now look at the left side of the printhead. (thats the unit that moves back and forth) You will notice that, above the spindel that you put the correction tape on, and towards the platen, on the black plastic, there is a recessed flat place about the width of the correction tape with slight serrations in it. This is the guide for the corr. tape. There is one like this on the right side also.
Put the corr. tape on the spindle, keeping slight tension on the tape, give it a 1/2 turn so the underside (dull) side is facing to the left, and put it in the guide. Then you put the tape behind the two metal "fingers" that are sticking up in front of the printwheel, and then into the guide on the right side. Then put the other corr. tape spool on the post on the right side, and turn it until the red "leader" on the tape is past the middle of the printwheel. The dull side of the corr. tape is the side that does the corrections, so make sure that side is facing towards the platen. Make sure the ribbon goes behind the metal fingers also. The tape and the ribbon should both be between the fingers and the metal cardholder.

Changing correction tape in model SL 105 I am attempting to put in a new correction tape in my Model SL 105. It appears to be moving, but I am getting no correction.


If the correction tape is moving and lifting there is a good possibility that the ribbon or correction tape are old and have changed composition or you have a non correctable ribbon.

The correction tape isn't working. it's installed properly, i think, but it doesn't erase anything.


Try taking the tape out and re-installing with the "dull" side towards the paper...if that doesn't work try a new correction tape.

Installation of correction tape on Brother typewriter Sx4000


I installed the supply reel first, with the tape coming off the top of the reel toward the first guide, made a partial twist to the right to go over and around the first guide toward the take-up reel and then installed the take-up reel so that the tape goes over the top of the take-up reel toward the operating person and is then wound counter-clockwise around the take-up reel.

I do not know how to load the correction tape...can you help me?


the easiest fix, is to take the machine to a repair shop that sells corr. tapes and ask them to install it. watch how it's done. look in the yellow pages. if you can't find a shop close, - - - first, take the ribbon off, then you put the supply side on the post on the left of the printhead. above the tape and right in front of the cardholder there is a guide for the tape that is black and has 2 fingers pointing to the left. turn the tape so that the part that is facing down as it comes off the spool is facing to the left, put he tape in the guide, between the two metal fingers and the card holder, then into the black guide on the right side and then put the take up spool on the post and turn to take up the slack. put the ribbon back on

Wrong letters typing


it sounds like you were using a non-brother correction tape,one that was too sticky and consequently too "slow" and during the correction sequence the fingers of the daisy-wheel got entangled with the tape. Make sure that the correction tape is of a "non-sticky" nature and then take off the correction and printing tapes. That way you will see better how the daisy-wheel is fitted . I will assume that you have an instruction book to show how this is done. before fitting the daisy wheel examine the fingers to see that none are bent or crossed over each other. If this is the case it is better to buy another one. bring your typewriter to the shop if this is the case and they will possibly re-fit the wheel for you. good luck.....

Correction Tape


Check the way the correct tape is installed. I have seen people twist them around the guide backwards and the correction material is facing away from the paper. Also can you see the correction tape lifting up?
