There are some rubber sleves that the ribbon sits on when it is in the lowered position they get very gooey and stop the ribbon from lifting if tou find them and remove them it should work.

SOURCE: Changing from word processing to manual typing

I don't have a solution, but would be happy to get a copy of the manual as we have that same typewriter and don't have a manual. May be able to help once we look at manual.

There is no "1" key on the Olivetti Studio 46 typewriter. How do I type the Number "1"?

Many old typewriters didn't have the digit one. Use a lowercase letter ell (L) instead.

Almost all old T/W W/P have a slide switch, a mode key or just a key you press to change the mode. Sorry I can't be of more help.

The printer Olivetti ET2500 could not type, any buttons press will have a 'sound' except KB II button .please advise how to solve this problem.

sound like you've got it in delayed print or memory mode, look in the display for the mode it is in. got a book? - look it up. if not STATO OPER is the section of the display (2nd from right) and also the button that changes it (2nd from right, on top right) I couldn't find an English example on the web to look at, just the Italian one.

Olivetti MS 25 Premier Plus

need to state problem a little more clearly. is it too high or low so that only the top or bottom of the letters show? can you take it and get your money back? in my opinion these machines are not constructed very well and are not very good to even type on. if you can find an older manual typewriter that is in good shape it will type better and last longer - sorry
