There's a small cap on the solenoid that pushes the hammer, this cap wears out and the solenoid cannot push anymore. Cheap part, always wears out, new ones are teflon and last lots longer.

I put in a new wheel and new ribbon with correction tape; was working fine but all of a sudden, it won't print correctly. It prints on the very top edge of the ribbon and the letters do not print...


On the older WW's there is a large black plastic gear on the R. side of the printer they do get tooth for tooth. try wiggling it to free it up, with the power off it should move easily.

How to change the correction tape?


Changing the Correction Tape

1) Move the print carrier to the center of the platen using the SPACE or BS key.

2) To replace the correction tape, lift out the typing ribbon cassette (see Changing The Ribbon Cassette) and remove the two spools of the lift off tape by pulling them outwards.

3) Place the empty spool of new tape on the left pin so that the tape winds clockwise. Place the tape around the left guide. Pull the tape around the right

guide and place the loaded spool on the right pin so that the tape unwinds counter-clockwise.

Note: Make sure the sticky side of the tape is facing the platen.

4) Manually turn the left-hand spool in the clockwise direction, tightening the tape until resistance is felt.

5) Replace the typing ribbon cassette.
6) Press the CODE + = (SETTING) key.

Changing the Ribbon Cassette

1) Move the print carrier to the center of the platen using the SPACE or BS key.

2) Hold the ribbon cassette on both sides and lift up the front portion (where the ribbon is exposed) to remove the cassette.

3) To insert a new cassette, place the back end of the cassette on the cassette

holder on the carrier and gently press down on the front of the cassette unit it clicks into place.

4) Turn the ribbon feed knob counter-clockwise again to take up any slack in the ribbon.
5) Presss the CODE + = (SETTING) key.

Good Luck!

If it is printing just the tops the platen may not be fully seated in the side frames, press down firmly on both ends of the platen.
If it is just printing poorly the print solenoid cap is cracked or the ribbon may not be feeding properly.

Replacement of correction tape


The correction tape cartridge "piggybacks" under the ribbon cartridge. Flip your black ribbon over, line up the front dges of the two ribbons and gently press down on the correction ribbon 'till the two wing tabs at the top are attached to the slots at the top of the black ribbon. Be sure to take up any slack in the ribbons BEFORE re- installing.

Take off the ribbon, just inside the rt. side frame of the printer is the mech. for L/O feeding. There is an arm that moves back and allows the feed to ****, that mech. is probably gummy, lube with some WD40 on both sides of the printer (the left side sets up correction lifting.
