Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I REPLACED THE RIBBON AND THE LETTERS WONT TYPE......they machine types but the letter is not visible. If I dont snap it in all the way, it will type the letter but no correction...please help....
On the right side of the printer is a black gear about 2" in diameter with the T/W off you should be able to move it easily, if you can't wiggle it back and fourth with some force and it should free up.

Put in a multi part form and type if the carbons come out OK the the ribbon isn't lifting, Wiggle the big black gear on the R. side of the carrier back and forth. They do get tooth for tooth when they get old. If the print on the copies id bad or not there you need a print solenoid cap. We sell them for 20,00 including instructiond and shipping.

Testimonial: "I tried wiggling the gear, but it wouldn't budge. So, I pulled it out, toward the right. It popped back into place and started lifting the ribbon."
