Is the platon properly seated? Sometimes the platon (the rubber tube thing that you crank the paper around) has been removed and then not returned all the way down into its cradle. Try pushing both sides down with equal pressure and see if it drops down and tightens. Good luck!

My Remington Noiseless 1939 typewriter has ghosting on the letter keys. I have put on a new ribbon but this just shows up the ghosting of each letter more than ever. I notice when typing the carriage

Could also be that your paper is too fibrous of finish. I found this page because my typewriter was ghosting, too. I adjusted some of the settings and there was not a trace of ghosting. I put the settings back and still no trace of ghosting. Then I realized that I tested for ghosting on paper that has a much smoother finish. I was ghosting on cheap paper we use here at work. So, I don't blame the typewriter. I blame the cheap paper. My typewriter just likes good paper.

I have an Olivetti Lettera 32. I put a brand new ribbon in it and when I type, the letters are coming up too light on the paper. How do I fix this? What needs to be done?

First thing is to be sure the ribbon is feeding, watch while you type. if not you may have a universal spool ribbon that isn't quite that universal. Wind the ribbon onto your old spools.

I have a smith corona sd680 work processor typewriter. When I type the letter don't come out clear and I have to type over and over in order to read the letters. This is an old typewriter in the office...

This problem is usually caused by an old ribbon theey do dry out when left in tthe typewriter a long time, also if the paper is really hard or has a slick surface the ink from the ribbon will not stick to the paper.

I am trying to type on labels but I cannot get the typewriter to grab the paper, so I keep typing on top of the same letters. When I hit return, the paper moves with the typing part.

If it works on paper Then take a pice of 150 grit sandpaper and remove the glaze on the platen. After you will have to wipe the platen to get the black dust off.

The keys don't type the correct letter

Loosen the screws that hold the silver guide, one on each side of the carriage. Adjust to touch platen with 2 sheets of paper installed. When you reset next time it will reset to the right letters.
