Have a olivetti 1000S typewriter, put in a new cartridge but when I type no printing appears on paper, any ideas


Put a multi part form in it, if it prints on the copies then you have a ribbon issue. If so be sure the ribbon is installed properly and that it isn't twisted (the dull side should face the paper) Try it without the Lift off they sometimes steal the impression.

On my wheelwriter 6, when i type everything goes through the motion but it want type any letter on the paper. I change the ribbon and install fresh batteries?


There is a part on the print hammer solenoid that falls apart over time. It is a small whiteish cap that
just falls apart so the machine sounds and looks like it is working but there is nothing being transfered to the paper. I have ordered this part from Coleman manufacturing.

Nakajima typewriter model AE830. New ribbon installed. when typing printed letters appear only lightly printed on paper. Any way to adjust?


Check to see if the ribbon is moving, then advance the ribbon manually about 6 inches, the ribbon may be old and they do go bad especially the exposed part. If the ribbon isn't advancing Code peroid, comma or slash will get you out of the overstrike mode.

Try typing on a mulipart form. If it types on the copies and not the orinonal the ribbon is the problem. If it dosen't type on the copies then the plastic cap on the print solenoid is broken.

We sell the cap with installation instructions for 20.00 includes shipping.

Typewriter is working fine but won't type anything on the paper - new ribbon / new printwheel - no impression. Appears to be stuck on a "stencil" setting.


Put in a mulit part form, if it prints on the copies the ribbon isn't lifting, if it dosen't the plastic cap on the print solenoid needs replaced.

No Characters Typing


could be the ribbon is not lifting, do you see an image on the ribbon, also may be twisted inside the cartridge the shiny side has to be facing the keyboard.
