Try taking the tape out and re-installing with the "dull" side towards the paper...if that doesn't work try a new correction tape.

Either your correction tape is old or the correction tape is not lifting to the proper position.

The correction tape will not erase properly


If the tape is moving and showing marks of correction attempts you probably have old supplies or a non correctable ribbon. Install a fresh ribbon & L/O cassette NOT AN OLD ONE FROM THE BACK ROOM.

I installed new correction tape, but there's too much play in it. It keeps unravelling. I have no idea how to tighten it up. When I turn the take-up spool, it just unravels it more without tightening...


Verify that you have installed the proper correction tape. The types of tape that can be used with this system are: Item 1030 - Correctable Film Ribbon, 1230 - Correctable Film Ribbon 2pack, 1031 - Multi Strike Ribbon, 1032 - Nylon Ribbon, 3010 - Lift-off correction tapes (to be used with 1030 and 1230 ribbons), 4010 Cover-up Correction tape (to be used with 1031 and 1032 ribbons).
Make sure that the correction tape is installed properly. Pass the tape through the left guide, behind the ribbon guide and out through the right guide. The rough side of the tape should face the platen. Attach the feeder spool to the pin on the left. Attach the take up spool to the pin on the right. Turn the take up spool counter clockwise until a small amount of tape has wound around it. Replace the cassette ribbon and close the case cover. Press [CODE] + [RESET] to move the carrier to the previous position.

The correction tape is not working properly. Wheelwriter 1000


If everything was working befor the ribbon & L/O change Either the L/o is not properly attached to the ribbon or the ribbon and or L/O are old. Make some corrections then remove and look at the L/o, if the letters are near the center of the L/O the problem is the ribbon or L/o is old, if the print is on the top of the tape it is not properly attached to the ribbon or not coming out or the cassette properly.
If you have a fresh set or another T/W that works swap the ribbons and look at how they are attached.

For a picture ngo to lexmark.com and click your way to publications you will find a downloadable manual there.

Remove and inspect the ribbon cartrige, wind the knob and make sure that the ribbon moves and reinstall. Check that the correction tape is installed properly. Check that the ribbon plate assembly is not in the correction position. Try CODE RESET (Q key)

Changed correction tape but still won't work


either; 1. you have a non-correctable film ribbon, (it should say correctable film ribbon on the box or the ribbon itself) you can check by taking a piece of scotch tape, hold it next to the letter you want to erase, sticky side towards the paper, and hit the CORR key, CAREFULL YOUR FINGERS AREN'T IN THE WAY. if it corrects, the ribbons ok. 2. make sure the DULL side of the corr. tape is faced toward the paper

Correction tape for my Smith Corona PWP 4500 plus...


Is it making all the motions of a correction? If so you may have put the tape on wrong. The dull side must be towards the platen.
