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.

The return button doesn't work

Gently pry off the return key, make a small spitball 1/8" or so, push into the small square hole where the ret.key goes. If this doesn't work you will have to remove the key board and clean the key contacts.

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.

Mastertype D and it does not move the margin over anything else to try

BE SURE NOT TO HOLD THE MARGIN RELEASE KEY OR YOU CAN'T GET BY IT. If this dosen't work try a shot of WD40 on the silver shaft that the carrier slides on.

Correction key problem

To correct press the correction key just above the ret. key. If you are passed the error backspace to it and press the corr. key.

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.

Be sure the pitch selection is correct. If it is set to PS when using a 10,12 or 15 pitch wheel it will select incorrect letters.
