Question about Olivetti Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I don't know how to change the ribbon in my olivetti studio 45 typewriter.

I'm trying to bring it back to life but I have never changed the ribbon, I ordered a new ribbon off eBay but the plastic spools threw me off. Do the plastic spools replace the metal ones?

Could be the plastic spools are cheaper to make and otherwise they are interchangeable.

SOURCE: replacing typewriter ribbon

i have this typewriter also. after replacing the ribbon and print wheel you have to press the (CODE) & (=) keys. This will align itself. I recently had to replace the print wheel and referred to the manual. Works like a charm.

SOURCE: RIBBON CHANGE

Make sure the ribbon is facing the correct side. Usually, there is a small encave which is to be facing downwards. Snap it in place and you are good to go.

SOURCE: Royal Portable typewriter ribbon

Hi, I have a Royal Companion Portable from 1940's. I bought new ribbons at mytypewriter.com (select the "Royal Portable" ribbon). It fits. Anyway if it doesn't it's not an expensive mistake, but I researched this and apparently all vintage Royal Portables have the same standard ribbon. Worked out in my case. Good luck!

Olivetti Underwood Studio 44 ribbon won't advance.


Remove the top cover, remove ribbon spools, press a key and grab it with your finger, note the mechanical motions toward the ribbon advancer movement, usually found near the center of the ribbon holder or could be on the outside edge also, there is a reverser mechanism also that should be fully to one side or the other, it switches the ribbon direction to avoid a 'dead end' while typing. By moving the key toward the platen and away it should drive the ribbon mount spool by a shifting drive lever of some kind. If you cannot resolve this issue, take it to a rare typewriter repair shop, it is too hard to explain in this format, and mechanical skills are involved, hope you have them, ;)
