Question about Lexmark Wheelwriter 15 Series II Typewriter
I have cleared out tabs and tried to express to right. No luck, it just stays in the middle and will return to the left but that is all. Prior to this I had a problem with the Correction ribbon. Now the mechanism that moves the tape does not move. Also, the keys don't engage the correction ribbon. I am sure that I probably need a good professional cleaning but I can't find anyone locally who works on these. Please help.
I am in Franklin, TN, too. Nashville Office Machine will clean, oil, and check Selectrics for $81.50. If the job doesn't use that much deposit, but parts are needed for repairs, they will apply money from the deposit toward the cost of parts. They have an enormous stock of parts for Selectrics, which they bought when the manufacture of IBM typewriter parts was discontinued. I am sorry, but I can't remember where they are located, but their phone number is 615-321-2679. They will also take the cover off and look at the typewriter briefly when you take it in, and can determine in a moment if they can fix it, and won't charge you the deposit or do any work, if it is obvious that they can't. They are very honest and reputable, and you can count on what they say. I drive all the way up from Columbia to have them work on my Selectric. They were recommended to me by a retired corporate secretary who used them for over 20 years and recommends them highly.

Sounds like Auto return is activated. Try holding the code key down while pressing the letter R key.
