I have used Code key by mistake and cannot correct.


Remove the print wheel, look for bent spokes and be sure that the ribbon or correction tape are not tangled in it.

Typewriter does not correct


There is a cam cluster under the ribbon plate that has to move over when you hit the correction key this lifts the correction tape, make sure the lift is not working and that the correction tape is old, and just does not lift off, have seen that...

How to change the correction tape?


Changing the Correction Tape

1) Move the print carrier to the center of the platen using the SPACE or BS key.

2) To replace the correction tape, lift out the typing ribbon cassette (see Changing The Ribbon Cassette) and remove the two spools of the lift off tape by pulling them outwards.

3) Place the empty spool of new tape on the left pin so that the tape winds clockwise. Place the tape around the left guide. Pull the tape around the right

guide and place the loaded spool on the right pin so that the tape unwinds counter-clockwise.

Note: Make sure the sticky side of the tape is facing the platen.

4) Manually turn the left-hand spool in the clockwise direction, tightening the tape until resistance is felt.

5) Replace the typing ribbon cassette.
6) Press the CODE + = (SETTING) key.

Changing the Ribbon Cassette

1) Move the print carrier to the center of the platen using the SPACE or BS key.

2) Hold the ribbon cassette on both sides and lift up the front portion (where the ribbon is exposed) to remove the cassette.

3) To insert a new cassette, place the back end of the cassette on the cassette

holder on the carrier and gently press down on the front of the cassette unit it clicks into place.

4) Turn the ribbon feed knob counter-clockwise again to take up any slack in the ribbon.
5) Presss the CODE + = (SETTING) key.

Good Luck!

When we type the keys hit above the ribbon.


Sounds like the ribbon isn't lifting try some WD40 on the ribbon motor bearings.

Changed correction tape but still won't work


either; 1. you have a non-correctable film ribbon, (it should say correctable film ribbon on the box or the ribbon itself) you can check by taking a piece of scotch tape, hold it next to the letter you want to erase, sticky side towards the paper, and hit the CORR key, CAREFULL YOUR FINGERS AREN'T IN THE WAY. if it corrects, the ribbons ok. 2. make sure the DULL side of the corr. tape is faced toward the paper

No Characters Typing


could be the ribbon is not lifting, do you see an image on the ribbon, also may be twisted inside the cartridge the shiny side has to be facing the keyboard.

KEY STRIKING PRESSURE


Try taking the ribbon out and looking at it see if there is one spot for each character on the ribbon or if they are overlapping.If they are over lapping then either you have a problem with the ribbon drive assembly on the machine or it is set for a multi-strike ribbon.
