It's not obvious indeed!
The idea is to;
1. take out the ring (try it by releasing the back part first! easy does it.
2. put tape into the Dymo 1855 mk II by pressing the white lever down
3. then take the tape you pushed through and guide it through the ring.
4. Put the ring back into the Dymo.

It worked for me ;-)

Good luck,

Marc

I have also a 1855 MK II, and I don't even know how to insert the white part (tape roll holder?) back inside the case...?

I would love to have the PDF of the Correcting Selectric II instruction manual. Thanks so much for offering this as a free service. You are great!


Ebay is your best bet for this one! I've found manuals for many older devices there, including a 100 year old cash register. You may have to add it as al "alert" it there's not one listed now, but I guarantee there will be eventually, and if you utilize the alert system Ebay offers, you'll be notified when one is listed for sale. Good luck!

Replacement of correction tape


The correction tape cartridge "piggybacks" under the ribbon cartridge. Flip your black ribbon over, line up the front dges of the two ribbons and gently press down on the correction ribbon 'till the two wing tabs at the top are attached to the slots at the top of the black ribbon. Be sure to take up any slack in the ribbons BEFORE re- installing.

Selectrik II sat for years. No escapt to next space after typing a letter or number


Be sure to put WD40 on the escapement (under the platen and paper tray) and the escapement drive mech. (rt. rear of machine) and the correction latching mech (under the rt. dust cover).

Take off the ribbon, just inside the rt. side frame of the printer is the mech. for L/O feeding. There is an arm that moves back and allows the feed to ****, that mech. is probably gummy, lube with some WD40 on both sides of the printer (the left side sets up correction lifting.
