Check to be sure that the correction tape is in properly and tight. Then make sure that the ribbon (and correction tape) are between the two metal "fingers" and the cardholder (which is the metal thing that holds the paper close to the platen right in front of the ribbon) Is the ribbon moving? You should be able to hold the ribbon up and see each letter on the ribbon. Also make sure the printhammer is locked forward. You should not be able to just reach in and take the printwheel out without the ribbon in place. The only other thing I can think of, is the ribbon got twisted some how. The dull side should be towards the paper.
1 - Is the dailsy whell properly installed ? (Has the lever been pressed firmnly ?) is the correct daisy wheel installed?
2 - Have you run out of ribbon ?
3 - Have you pressed the 'spider web' key with + // keys after replacing cassette ribbon, correction tape or daisy wheel?
I have the instruction manual if that helps..
Pleas feel free to advise your email, and I will gladly forward :
Turn oFF the typewriter, take the ribbon out.....use the lever on top to release and remove the print wheel cartridge. Lightly rotate it to see if it will move and reinsert the cartridge. snap it back into place. Turn on the machine, the typewriter should move the carrier to the left and reset the printwheel....if it is snapped back properly.
Ok,there could be two possibilities ,1, The daisy wheel may not be seated in properly. Of course I assume that the print side of the daisy wheel is facing the platen and that when the typewriter is switched on the print unit makes its customary re-setting motion and that the daisy wheel spins around at the same time. if this does not happen make sure that the lock-in lever for the daisy wheel is pushed home.. I am sure that you do all these elementary things so the only other possibility is the the hammer seleniod is not fully functioning and would have to be re-placed....Good luck!
