If this is a wheelwriter remove the ribbon, mark the driver on the ribbon deck with some white out, type and see if it moves.
If it moves try a new ribbon, if it dosen't move put some WD40 on the upper and lower motor bearings if that dosen't help you probably need a motor or a board.

IBM WW1000 ribbon advance not working, I have checked the ribbon motor and ribbon feed follower + spring all seem OK, Is this a function board or anything I may be missing.


Be sure the Ribbon lift/feed motor is plugged in, alittle WD 40 on thw upper and lower bearings, mark the gear that engages the ribbon and type to see if it moves if it moves ikt isn't fully engaging the ribbon this happens with some generic supplies.

The typewriter ribbon does not want to turn when typing


If you have moved the red lever from the front to thje right and it dosen't feed be sure the ribbon is to the L. of the slacker finger where the ribbon comes out of the cartridge if that is OK try some WD40 on thearm with the spiked driver on th end they do gum up and not engage the ribbon.

Most ribbons wind to the outside of the spools. Take the ribbon off, type and watch the take up spindels to see whitch way it moves and install the ribbon that way.

The ribbon is not moving. typing in same spot only.


If the ribbon is just moving a little you may be in the overstrike ribbon mode try code period, comma or slash I can never remember which to get out of the mode if that dosen't do it try a new ribbon.

I have a circa 1940's-50's Royal Desktop Typewriter. The ribbon that was already on it was rather worn and severely faded so I bought new ribbon for it. The only available ribbon was a red-black silk inked...


You have the ribbon on wrong. The ribbon dosen't feed off the spool but take up onto the spool. install the ribbon so that the moving spool is taking up the ribbon.

Ribbon replace on ibm selectra 2


Lift top cover up.
Move the carrier to center of machine.
On the right hand side of the carrier there is a red lever. slide it to the left.
( it will lift ribbon arm's up & move the ribbon drive mecanisem out of the way.)
you now can lift the ribbon cassett out of the machine,
put the new ribbon in the machine.
there is a wire with a white plastic roller around it on the left side of carrier. make sure the ribbon goes on the out side of the that wire.
put the ribbon throuugh the lift arms
turn the knob on ribbon till the colored led is in to the ribbon cassett + a few turns of the black ribbon is around the spool.
slip the red lever to the right.
close cover & try typing
hope it works for you

First off make sure the ribbon turns freely.Take off the ribbon and turn the ribbon wheel in the direction of the arrow and see if it turns smoothly. If it turns smoothly the ribbon motor is not moving or the gear is not moving. take off the ribbon and type. See if the black ribbon drive gear on the ribbon deck moves as you type. If not the motor is N.G. or the ribbon gear clutch spring is not grabbing the gear to turn it. Lawrence
