Need a ribbon for my smith corona corsair manual typewriter


This ribbon is no longer made, you may find one on ebay but it will be very old. Your best bet is to wrap a new ribbon onto your spools.

I have a new black and red ribbon for my Smith Corona Silent Super typewriter. I took the old one out a long time ago. I know the red half goes on the bottom and the black on top but I am not sure which...


Most ribbons wind to the outside of the spools. Take the ribbon off, type and watch the take up spindels to see whitch way it moves and install the ribbon that way.

Typewriter is working fine but won't type anything on the paper - new ribbon / new printwheel - no impression. Appears to be stuck on a "stencil" setting.


Put in a mulit part form, if it prints on the copies the ribbon isn't lifting, if it dosen't the plastic cap on the print solenoid needs replaced.
