Have a Smith Corona Electra 110. The ribbon doesn't turn, whether it is set to go one way, or the other. The side that's driving the ribbon makes a little **** with the keystroke, but goes back to starting...


Make sure that the ribbon has been intalled into the reverse guide forks on either side where the ribbon comes out of the spools. The ribbon should have a rivet in the fabric near the end of the ribbon so make sure you have the proper ribbon. The machine may require lubrication. You might also try taking the ribbon out and moving the R side to the Left just so you can type a little bit. Thsi may loosen the mechanism.

Smith Corona Classic 12 ribbon won't stay in place


Okay...i had the same problem when I replaced the original ribbon that came with my Classic 12. I think it was the ribbon that came with the typewriter.
Anyway, on the ribbon carrier, there are two sets of metal prongs on top of one another. If you get the ribbon behind both of them, it will pop up and not go back down or won't come up at all.
You have to get the ribbon between the two sets of prongs. There's isn't much room and you have to kind of pull the bottom of the ribbon taught and slide it down from the top.
It isn't easy the first time, but after you get it, you won't forget.

As for your ribbon not feeding...take the spools out and make sure the pegs that go into the holes in the spools are rotating when you type. This is what moves the spools. Then make sure you're getting the pegs in the hols when you put the spools back in.
Also, make sure the ribbon isn't twisted anywhere and that it's threaded correctly. Both spools should look identical with the ribbon coming out of the top toward the carrier.

To ensure you have the correct ribbon, got to the Office Depot online store and do a search for Smith Corona Classic 12 and you will get a pretty generic, double-black ribbon that fits and works perfectly...and is so soaked in ink you can reuse each side three times. I don't recall the brand name, but the box is grey with red lettering.
