You may have bad feed rollers, or they may not be engaging the platen as they should for one reason or another. A common cause for this is if the paper tray is not installed correctly. If you can remove the platen, check that the guide fingers on the paper pan are situated on the rests made for them. Also make sure the platen is snapped in place all the way if this is the snap in kind. Hope this helps.

How do I fit the correction tape o a Smith Corona XL1500 typewriter

First, backspace to the mistaken character. You slip the correction tape in the middle of the platen where the type hits, then type the same character, pull out the correction tape, backspace and type the correct character.

Advancing the paper

I need ti know if you turn the platen knob with the power on is there any hasitation or is it free wheeling. if it's free then the motor belt is broke or a gear has snapped. if there is hasitation it may just need some light oiling on the bearings. turn the type off turn the platen if fills hard lightly oil both shafts at eather side of platen by side frame. hope this works

Smith Corona 235 DLE doesn't advance

Does the platen move or does the paper not advance? Check the paper release lever to make sure the feed wheels are snapped in place. If the platen does not move something in the paper feed motor area.

pull the paper release lever and look under the platen as well as you can, to see if there are any forien objects. check if the feed rollers are all in place. the slots in the paper pan under the platen should have rollers in them
