Question about IBM Office Equipment & Supplies
I have an IBM Selectric II. When I replaced the ribbon recently, the new ribbon will not advance. If I advance it manually, it will type until the ink on the ribbon wears off. Please help me. Thank you.
First check to be sure that the ribbon is on the left of the shock wire where it comes out of the cassette, if that is OK then check the ribbon driver it should move freely and swing to the ribbon take up spool. Some WD40 will free it up. Also be sire the ribbon is winding in the direction of the arrows.
