It keeps beeping when its on and wont work

Be sure you remove all packing materals. Check Printwheel, correction tape and ribbon installation. Be sure the carrier will move back and forth all the way.

When I press the "correct" button, nothing erases. How do I fix this?

If the T/W is going thru the lift off movements the correction tape may be installed with the wrong side towards the paper. Dull side towards the paper.

Lift Off tape is not working we bought brand labeled for Brother typewriters. It fits but does not lift off.

Possibly the tape is not on correctly. the dull side of the tape must be toward the paper.
