The correction ribbon is installed on a separate mechanism on a typewriter. If you look between the regular ribbon guide and the card holder you should see the correction ribbon guides on the right and left hand side of the card holder. the spool holders will be to the right and left of the correct ribbon guides. This is true only if the typewriter has a correction mechanism installed. Some machines do not have a correction mechanism. Correction is achieved by using a correction tab which is held by hand, in front of the letter to be removed, or white out. Some correction tapes attach to the bottom of the print ribbon.

I am having problems changing the correctable ribbon. It does not correct after installation.

if it prints but doesn't correct, it is probably a problem with the correction tape. make sure the tape is instaled in the correct postion with the dull side towards the paper

How to change the correction tape?

Changing the Correction Tape

1) Move the print carrier to the center of the platen using the SPACE or BS key.

2) To replace the correction tape, lift out the typing ribbon cassette (see Changing The Ribbon Cassette) and remove the two spools of the lift off tape by pulling them outwards.

3) Place the empty spool of new tape on the left pin so that the tape winds clockwise. Place the tape around the left guide. Pull the tape around the right

guide and place the loaded spool on the right pin so that the tape unwinds counter-clockwise.

Note: Make sure the sticky side of the tape is facing the platen.

4) Manually turn the left-hand spool in the clockwise direction, tightening the tape until resistance is felt.

5) Replace the typing ribbon cassette.
6) Press the CODE + = (SETTING) key.

Changing the Ribbon Cassette

1) Move the print carrier to the center of the platen using the SPACE or BS key.

2) Hold the ribbon cassette on both sides and lift up the front portion (where the ribbon is exposed) to remove the cassette.

3) To insert a new cassette, place the back end of the cassette on the cassette

holder on the carrier and gently press down on the front of the cassette unit it clicks into place.

4) Turn the ribbon feed knob counter-clockwise again to take up any slack in the ribbon.
5) Presss the CODE + = (SETTING) key.

Good Luck!

Installed new ribbon. appears correctly installed.

There is probably a fold in the ribbon usually the bottom, reinstall it and be vsure it is flat between the guides.
