I don't know the model specifically or the age but it is going to be one of two methods. If this is a snap in cartridge then all you need to do is pop out the cartridge and replace making sure the ribbon is properly seated in the guide (thin space at the foot where the letters strike). If it is older you will have two spools. You still need to thread it but you will need to take off the collection spool and replace that with an empty one and the put the new one on the "feeding side". If you post pictures I can help you more specifically.
If it worked befor you installed the ribbon then check the installation or if the ribbon is very old it may be bad. Try typing on a multipart form and see if the carbons print.

If you replaced this drum already you should have seen all of the sensors! So,1st remove all drums and frnt cover and vac, vac, and vac. We have these machines and have never had this message. There are small boards on the drm units to let the machine know it has a new one. There may be a big glob of magenta toner on it etc. Good Luck
Is the typewriter a Smith Corona SD 250? If so, you have entered the "memory" mode by mistake. Over on the left side of the typewriter is a switch marked "MEM", "LINE", and "TYPE". Move the switch down to "LINE" or "TYPE" to resume normal typing. DO NOT PRESS ANY NUMBER BUTTONS ON "MEM" MODE! Does this information fix your problem?
I just got this typewriter a few days ago so I don't know everything about it yet... But I believe that this is one way to fix your problem.
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... Squipps
