First off make sure the ribbon turns freely.Take off the ribbon and turn the ribbon wheel in the direction of the arrow and see if it turns smoothly. If it turns smoothly the ribbon motor is not moving or the gear is not moving. take off the ribbon and type. See if the black ribbon drive gear on the ribbon deck moves as you type. If not the motor is N.G. or the ribbon gear clutch spring is not grabbing the gear to turn it. Lawrence

Sounds like the platen is not fully seated in the side frames, align the black latches with the frames and press firmly on both sides of the platen. the latches do occasionally crack in witch case you may need a platen replacement.

Is the hammer moving at all? There is a rubber part on the I think left side of the ribbon hammer, down on the side of the printer. This will adjust the amount of impact. I really doubt if
this is the problem, but worth a try to look at. This part and I think it is a blue slide will move up and down to adjust the impact. Possible lubrication and there is a large spring that actually pulls that hammer forward, check to see if this spring is OK. Other than that electronic problems such as main board, printer motors, etc. Does hammer move freely by hand? Also mechanical binding in the printer... GOOD LUCK.
