SOURCE: I have an Olympia Electronic Compact. When I turn

I have the same typewriter. If I remember correctly, beeping very fast means there is a problem with the printer wheel. You might try (with the typewriter off) pulling back the wheel, reinserting the wheel, and turning on the typewriter. If that doesn't work, get another wheel (they're cheap online if you buy a Swintec wheel rather than an Olympia wheel - same goes for ribbons). The only other thing I can think is that the ribbon is out, needs reinserted, or there is no correction tape in the machine. But I think it has something to do with a broken or misplaced wheel.

When we press any button (eg. space bar, return, any of the letters or numbers to type anything), the typewriter just makes a beeping sound, and won't move or do anything. How do we get it to work again?


Try reinstalling the printwheel, Cheek to see if any keys are stuck down. On the R. side of the R. side is the switch for forms insertion they do break. remove one of the wires.

Beeping and keys don't work


When you power up what happens? What lights are lit, are thy flashing, are there beebs and how many? These are error codes and are important.

Beeping sound when powering unit on


Have you simply pushed the carriage back to the middle? If it is like the ML100 (it looks the same) you can just push it over ...with the pwoer off. Then put in you new ribbon. And this time, when you turn it on, it is the new ribbon that hits a switch on the underside of the keyboard, located to the upper left. If you do not have a ribbon installed, it will travel all the way to the left, and beep, beep, beep, beep. ,,,, The switch is hit with the ribbon housing.
