Olympia Competence Electronic Typewriter - Need manual

Does anyone have a manual for an Olympia Competence electronic typewriter? I can't find any other reference to the model, all it says is 'Competence Memory Display'. Would appreciate any help.

    The only number I can find is 82.100.3573 (01), made in Mexico.

    Sorry, I looked and looked and could not find this manual. It seems there were 4 models in this line - the Competence, the Competence MD, the Competence MT and the Competence WP - seems like you have the MD model. Many of Olympia's machines were manufactured by Nakajima and others, so you may find a manual for another brand that is the same as your machine. If you could take a snapshot and add it to your reply, I can try to identify a match with another brand.

    I don't know this model - check agian on the back of the machine where it has date of manufacture, etc. and see if there is any other model number.

SOURCE: Need manual

I have an olympia international electronic compact typewriter with the manual. I don't want to separate the manual from the typewriter (though I'd like to get rid of both), but maybe I could help somehow.

SOURCE: I have an Olympia Electronic Compact. When I turn

I have the same typewriter. If I remember correctly, beeping very fast means there is a problem with the printer wheel. You might try (with the typewriter off) pulling back the wheel, reinserting the wheel, and turning on the typewriter. If that doesn't work, get another wheel (they're cheap online if you buy a Swintec wheel rather than an Olympia wheel - same goes for ribbons). The only other thing I can think is that the ribbon is out, needs reinserted, or there is no correction tape in the machine. But I think it has something to do with a broken or misplaced wheel.

Can you suggest a model for ARABIC & English letter Typewriter ?

It is unlikely you will get a typewriter with 2 languages....think of the problem of labeling the keys, as well as limited memory in a typwriter to contain both languages. Most typewriters are available in North America as either ENGLISH, FRENCH, or SPANISH. These being considered the most common languages.

I need an instruction manual for an Olympia Electronic Compact typewriter

I have this typewriter and some of the documentation that came with it. I used it for years (still do for mailing labels). Perhaps I can answer your questions if you let me know what you need to know? It's a fairly simple typewriter.
