Sounds like the platen has worked loose. press down firmly on both ends of the platen (black rubber rol) it should snap back into place.

We have a 3 part carbonless contract which is printed on both sides. The 3rd page is barely visible when the original 3 part form is completed (filled out) by ball point pen. Is it the carbonless paper...


Carbonless paper is great, but it deteriorates with age.
(Nothing new here. )

I don't know that there are different sensitivity paper available, but usually to get a good result the paper should be on a flat hard surface.
Naturally the writer must press much harder than with carbon paper.

- Yes, I have once seen carbonless paper forms printed on the wrong side. -

Brand new typewriter ML-100 worked fine yesterday. Today, letters are not fully appearing; the ink is only filling in half of each letter printed (just the top portion.) Please help. Thank you!


Hi. There is a lever (left side) to set the thickness of paper. Move that to lower number if you only have 1 paper, move up if you have several pages. Hope this helps.

For a Swintec 8014 typewriter: the bottom portion of the letters are not tranferring to the paper when the keys are striked. although the ribbon shows the full letter being striked, only the top portion...


Check to be sure the ribbon dosen't have a fold in it and is fully seated in place, be sure the platen is fully seated in the side frames, check the correction tape for proper imstallation it can rob the print if to high.

Printer wont print. It keeps saying PC Load Legal. The printer has paper in it.


Well the printer is telling you to load "Legal Size paper, which is 8.5" X 14" paper.

More than likely, the application you are using is telling the printer to print the page on legal sized paper.

If you want the document to print on "Letter sized paper (8.5" X 11") then in the application, go to the File drop down and select "Page Setup". From within page setup's window, change the paper size to letter and then re-print the job.

Tray output


You should configure TRAY 1 as Legal only.
and Tray 2 as plain letter.

Specially when you specify from what tray/paper type to print.

This can be easily configured from the Printer Properties within the Printers and Faxes section of the Control Panel.

Good luck!

"always getting check paper size"


the paper size you are using is incorrect.
1- when you take out the tray is the the paper snug in the tray? is the paper adjuster set to LETTER, is there a switch for custom and letter? is it set to letter?is it set to letter in the menu?

Keep getting "11 load letter in tray 1" message


Are the print jobs being sent to printer all the same page size?

Are they all print jobs sent letter page size and your printers cassettes are set for A4 or something?

Your printer is asking for letter size paper, because any paper it has is not set to letter  and document that it is trying to print has been sent as that size.

Check what options you have on print driver on pc as far as Tray defaults, paper type and size settings

Check printer settings via its keypad as to tray defaults, paper size set for each tray and paper type, some printers have paper size switchs on their trays too.
