SOURCE: IBM Selectric used ribbon won't wind into spool

The ribbon sometime gets wrapped around the ribbon driver,One lever on the right side only releases the lift off tape for removal the other is for ribbon removal, also check that the ribbon is on the outside of the ribbon tensioner where the ribbon exits the cartridge on the left side ( a wire thing with a plastic tube on it.

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.

Why doesn't my new corrector ribbon/ink ribbon work? The wheel advances-nothing shows on paper.


Put in a multi-part form, type if the carbon is OK the problem is with the ribbon. Look at the ribbon if there is an impression on the ribbon but no ink transfer the ribbon is very ols, if there is no impression then the ribbon isn't lifting. THere ix a 2" black gear on the right side of the printer it should move easily if not wiggle it back and forth they get tooth for tooth with the drive gear.

Olivetti Underwood Studio 44 ribbon won't advance.


Remove the top cover, remove ribbon spools, press a key and grab it with your finger, note the mechanical motions toward the ribbon advancer movement, usually found near the center of the ribbon holder or could be on the outside edge also, there is a reverser mechanism also that should be fully to one side or the other, it switches the ribbon direction to avoid a 'dead end' while typing. By moving the key toward the platen and away it should drive the ribbon mount spool by a shifting drive lever of some kind. If you cannot resolve this issue, take it to a rare typewriter repair shop, it is too hard to explain in this format, and mechanical skills are involved, hope you have them, ;)

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.

How to install typewriter ribbon on a Sears typewriter model no 2


I believe this T/W takes a Gen. Ribbon T5 or T7. Check to see which way the spool turns over 90% wrap to the outdide of the spool. Put it on to wrap in that direction, the ribbon will have an eyelet about 6" from the end be sure that is wrapped on the spool. From either side put the ribbon tru the reversing arm, tru the lifter, tru the other reversing arm and back to the other spool.

The ribbon wont advance


The ribbon drive on this model are gear driven..a .may be off, a loose set screw on one of the gears..the ribbon may be the wrong one or it has a ribbon reverse lever on the side of the machine, this should be free of binds.
Hope this helps........

Old typewriter Brother DELUXE 800 : ribbon reference ?


This is what you are looking for:
Brother Typewriter Ribbon spool black and red SC-20BR-BRO Compatible
Brother Typewriter Ribbon spool black and red SC-20BR-BRO Compatible
Brother Typewriter Ribbon spool black and red SC-20BR-BRO Compatible
The typewriter ribbons for use in Brother manual typewriters are usually all the same. What matters is the size (diameter and hight) of the spools.They differed only in that they were available in different colours (usually black or black and red) and in different materials: some ribbons were made of nylon (cheaper) and other made of silk (more expensive and higher quality) .
Maybe some old and good stationer's (papeterie) still carries them or has some in stock.
Or else you may want to contact the customer support service of Brother, in France, for advice on where to find them in your Country.
