Canon Typestar 4 (How to use as a typewriter vs. word processor)

Is their someone out there that can tell me how to use the Typestar 4 as a typewriter vs a word processor or where I can find a manual? I tried pressing the mode key to get NP to show in the display, but that doesn't work. Appreciate whatever help can be passed on. Thanks. Jim

My typewriter will not delete the words anymore

I understand you are using one of thse vintage word-processor typewriters. Specify Brand and Make but even without this info my opinion is that probably you should find someone specialized to repair it. I have one of these, an Olivetti I bought 25 years ago, and simply never could get anyone to repair it.

Canon typestar 110

I just got a typestar on ebay, new-still in box. I'd be happy to scan the manual and email it to you if you still need one. This is a pretty old post. But it appears the ribbons have been discontinued. I'm pretty sad, I wanted to actually use this machine lol.

Typewriter instruction manual

Try these two sites for the manual. The typewriter you are using is very old school, so tracking manuals for them is ab it hard.
