1.If your unit is not printing check the ribbon cartridge to make sure it has not run out.
2.If the ribbon appears silver or gray install a new cartridge. Also make sure the ribbon is advancing in the cartridge.
3.Next make sure the black lever in the center of the carriage is pressed toward the paper. If not, press the black lever toward the paper to lock the daisywheel into place and reset unit by holding down the "CODE" key, while holding the code key down press the "REST / Q" keyand release both keys.

There are two levers on the right side of the carrier for the typewriter and correction ribbon. The little red lever close to the front right corner is to release the typing ribbon. the larger grey lever on the right end of the ribbon mounting bracket releases the correction tape. Pull it to the front, and it will release the correction tape. Look welll to see how the ribbon is threaded through the spindles and behind the guides next to the platten roller, before you take the old correction roll off.
NOTE: When changing either typing or correction ribbon, you need to know that only one of the levers mentioned will release at a time. If you have released one, you will have to snap it back into working position and pull the other lever to release it. THEY absolutely will not both release at the same time.
Remove the ribbon and wind the feedwheel by hand and check for ribbon movement, if none, replace. Visually inspect the ribbbon feed assembly to see if it is rotating the feed gears (mark with felt pen) A drop or two of oil mayhhelp, but the ribbon motor may be defective also.
The margin release mech. is probably gummy and allowing returns to go past the margin. If thi is a dual pitch machine see if the pitch selector lever will move easily. If not use some WD40 on the margin rack.
Seems like the ribbon may be cought in the printwheel of in front of it. Release the printwheel, make sure nothing is caught, and resnap it closed. Make sure the prinwheel rotates when it is first turned on or the proper character will not be struck.
