Correction tape is stuck

The correction tape and ink tape somehow was switched and when I was tying nothing was happening and when I deleted it began typing. I took out the ink ribbon and now my correction tape is stuck... when someone turned on the typewriter the correction tape aligned to the left and now it is stuck. How can I fix this? HELP!

SOURCE: typewriter won't type letters

HI.. the hammer solenoid may be should make a typing sound when you hit a key.( the printhammer moved and strikes the printwheel) or when you changed ribbons you might have unlatched the printwheel..there is a lever you press to relatch it until it "clicks"
If not that then make sure the ribbon is seated correctly, that it is between the printwheel and the black roller.Also visually inspect the ribbon so it is not caught in the printwheel.

SOURCE: Typewriter suddenly will not print!

It's been awhile since I've worked on these.

What is the typing mechanism in here? I believe Brother was using a wheel.

SOURCE: the correctional tape

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.

SOURCE: Replaced Typewriter Ribbon & Now Correction Tape doesn't work

Is the ribbon that you installed a correctable one? It should have a yellow or orange knob to turn it. If that knob is blue, you installed a multistrike or non-correctable ribbon.

The only other thing is you have the correction tape in backwards

I was driving and the van just died. it still turns over just doesn't fire. i'm guessing it lost spark or gas. nothing happened, no warning signs. it just died. fuel pump is 1.5 years old. whats a fast...

Have someone turn the key on while you have you ear close to the fuel tank. You should hear a 1-3 second whirr as the pump builds up pressure. If no sound you can tap on the tank with a rubber or dead blow hammer to see if the pump is stuck. This trick will only work so many times before complete failure! Fords also had a fuel pump shut off switch, after Pintos started blowing up. Most cars had them in the trunk under the plastic covers. I'm not sure on the vans. Look for a small black box with 2 wires near the tank on the inside of the van. You can cut out the switch and tie the wires together with a wire nut and black tape or shrink tube to bypass the switch.

Printer will not pull the paper through...

This usually happens when something is blocking the path of the paper....make sure nothing was dropped inside...usually a paper clip or a staple might get stuck somehow.....try using a compressed air can to blow off any debris.....

The yellow light blinks and it won't print

I also started having problems with my HP 870Cse when I began using refilled cartridges and had ink leakage (cartridge contacts corrupted). Check for this problem. If so, remove cartridges and gently clean the spillage. Then try using HP brand cartridges and see if this doesn't remedy the problem.

How do I solve error message 6A00 on canon printer?

Turn switched it off, open the lid and manually slid the cartridge-tray to the left. Use a piece of tissue to clean the base-pad where the heads are stored. It turned out to be stuck in a kind of upward position and somehow the mechanism that moves the tray is released so nothing happens when you switch on the printer.

Touching it snapped it loose. Remove all ink residue, move the tray back to its most right position and close everything.

Please let me know.

I switched it off, opened the lid and manually slid the cartridge-tray to the left.

Then I used a piece of tissue to clean the base-pad where the heads are stored. It turned out to be stuck in a kind of upward position and somehow the mechanism that moves the tray is released so nothing happens when you switch on the printer.
