Question about Smith Corona Wordsmith 200 Typewriter

Smith Corona PWP90 corrector cartridge problem

When the correct button is pushed, both the corrector cartridge ribbon and the black cartridge ribbon "pop up" and are tangled outside of the track on top of the print area.
I tried new cartridges, double-checked the correct numbers for cartridges, and the same problem occurs.
Is this a fixable problem? Or should we trash the thing? Thanks, Jackie

Sounds like the corr tape doesn't have the proper tension on it. turn wheel on corr tape cartridge, or if there isn't a wheel, some don't, there is a little lever to the left and under the left side where the cart. fits down. push this until the arm on the right side moves to the left

There is nothing wrong with my smith corona typewriter. I just want to know what is the exact dimension (in inches) of the cartridge or the ribbon the matches to my SL 580. I saw an online store in amazon...


The Smith Corona SL460/470/480/500/560/570/580/600/SL Series all use the same ribbons.

Note that:
  • a Correctable Film Ribbon [original Smith Corona ref. 21000 (Dual Pack) or 67108 (6-Pack)] should be used with a Lift-Off Correcting Cassette [Smith Corona Ref. 21060 (Single Pack) or 67116 (3-Pack)];
  • a Multi-Strike Ribbon (Smith Corona Ref 21025) should be used with a Cover-Up Correcting Cassette (Smith Corona Ref.21065)
