Look at the ribbon and see if the letters are in the center of the ribbon. If not you have a ribbon lift problem. If they are check to be sure the platen is fully seated in the side frames.

I have an Olympia Standard elec typwriter. Does anyone know where I could find someone (NE London for pref) who could correctly install one of my replacement cartridges and correcting tapes. As it is,...


I think the reason why the tape is no longer rising up is due to the failure of the orange cog at the bottom of the carriage (just under the printer ribbon). This stops the carriage rising.

Can you inspect the cog and check it is intact? Also look at the bottom of the typewriter inside an look for sheared off organge teeth

Let me know if it's that issue and I might be able to give you a solution

I have a really old SD 660 and I no longer have manual. It is printing great but it is not typing correct letter for example when you type a it prints the letter p and so on?


Remove the printwheel check for bent spokes, look for debris in that area, try it without the correction tape, check that the correction tape is dry not tacky, also check to see if the pitch selection isn't in PS proportional space. If allis good the homing pawl spring is probably broken, you need a tech.

Warning sound, didn't move


Check to be sure the correction tape isn't tangled in the print wheel. If it is or was check the wheel to be sure it isn't damaged,
Then try it without the correction tape.

Wong letters & numbers


I downloaded the manual from http://www.devicemanuals.com/downloadguide.php and then, following the instructions there, I removed then re-inserted the daisy wheel. This solved my problem. Perhaps it had somehow gotten out of adjustment. At least, it is something to try if you haven't tried it already.

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.....
