Sounds like the L. margin is set at the rt. side. Turn the T/W off and onn let find home, press and release the mar. rel. key, backspace to the place you would like the L. mar to be, press L. mar key. This should take care of problem.

Start with the spool with the hole in on the left hand side push it on to its spindle.
pull the tape out a little you will note the tape has a shiny side and a slightly dull side you need the dull side toward the roller and put the right hand spook on its post then tighten up the ribbon by Turing the right hand spool counter clockwise as i say not easy.

The correctional tape isn't popping up to white-out the errors. Instead the actual ink is typing where it should be correcting making the letters bold. I tried tightening the correctional ribbon and the...

Hello. I had a similar problem, and Upstatoes helped me. Mine started with striker stuck forward, and then went to working for a few days, but sticking forward again And it was caused by the spring not being in the right place. But the correction tape housing is pushed up and pulled down by the white, adjustable piece on the right side, that has the screw holding it into the adjustment place. If you take off the ink ribbon, push the carriage to middle, and turn on the typewriter, there will be a switch at the top left of the keyboard, on the underside, you will need to flick with your finger, one time, as the carriage moves to the left. This is the reference switch, and you will be tricking the typewriter into thinking it is now in the left side start position. After this, you can see the white adjuster piece on the right side of the carriage, and, as you type a letter, also see if it is holding down the correction tape housing. Then when you hit the erase key, see if the cam on the inside (looking through the small holes in the correction tape housing) turns and pushes up this housing? It may be the tab in the white adjuster is not inside the grove of this cam. Either way, at that point, you may be able to see if something else is not as it should be? My problem was the long side of the spring was not underneth the white adjuster. (I had been putting it under the housing, and it was not helping ot push everything up like it should be.) Aparently this cam with the white adjuster tab in the groove holds everything down, easily, as you type, but has to have the spring help to push up when you use the earse key.

Your description was a little hard to understand, does the carrier not go left og center or does it just start printing at the center?

If it goes left but dosen't start printing till the center check to see if the platen (roller) is fully seated in the side frames.

If it stopps in the center reset the L. margin.
