Try holding the code key down and pressing the (.) period key. It is probably in the mullti strike ribbon mode.

SOURCE: Ribbon will not advance fully

If I remember correctly Code + comma (,) It may be the period(.) or slash(/) one of these should change the ribbon advance.

Hi, I have a Royal Companion Portable from 1940's. I bought new ribbons at mytypewriter.com (select the "Royal Portable" ribbon). It fits. Anyway if it doesn't it's not an expensive mistake, but I researched this and apparently all vintage Royal Portables have the same standard ribbon. Worked out in my case. Good luck!

First check to be sure that the ribbon is on the left of the shock wire where it comes out of the cassette, if that is OK then check the ribbon driver it should move freely and swing to the ribbon take up spool. Some WD40 will free it up. Also be sire the ribbon is winding in the direction of the arrows.

Try Code comma, peroid or slash one of them will get you out of the overstrike ribbon mode.

It might be a ribbon problem. take the ribbon cassette out and look at where it has been typed on. Do the characters overlap? If so, get a new one. Or the ribbon might be dried out. Is there an impression control? Set it on heavier print. If you have a different print wheel, try that too.

Ribbon will not advance


mark the ribbon where it turns, where there is a pin of the typewriter passing through the ribbon,mark it with a white marker.
and type something, if it doesnt turn, you know the machine has a problem.
or try everytime pressing on the ribbon, if it works you know the ribbon is coming up, check if the correction ribbon is placed good.behind the correctable ribbon.

The keys on the left side of my circa 1933 Royal typewriter gets stuck on the ribbon everytime. Also my ribbon doesn't advance. Help?!


Hi:
The most likely problem is there is dirt inside the ribbon basket. This is the area where the type bar (this is the bar with the actual letter on it) ends. They all fit into a semi circle area. If you can find something very narrow and thin with a hook on it you can use it to clean out the areas where each type bar goes. Then try to lightly lube the entire basket right where the type bars pivot with something light like sewing machine or 3 in 1 0il. As far as the ribbon reverse goes it might be as simple as making sure that the ribbon is being fed through the ribbon reverse forks which are usually located left of each ribbon spool.

Good luck
