When you press the correcton key it should backspace and lift off the print, if it makes the movement and dosen;t correct check to be sure you have a correctable ribbon (orange or yellow knob), be sure the correction is installed properly dull side facing the paper.

How can i use the eraser?

I'm not sure exactly what your problem is but if you type a wrong letter press the correction key on the R. side. The key has a "X" inside an arrow pointing left.

Go to click on current models one of the Nakajimas will be the same as yours.

The correction tape isn't working. it's installed properly, i think, but it doesn't erase anything.

Try taking the tape out and re-installing with the "dull" side towards the paper...if that doesn't work try a new correction tape.
