Try reinstalling the ribbon again. Sometimes the ribbon get caught in the daisywheel. If that doesn't work, try a new ribbon.

Be sure that the ribbon L/O and P/W are properly installed, move the slide switches back and forth a few times, check that no keys are stuck down, With the machine off see if the carrier will move back and forth. If not a littlt WD40 on the silver shaft it slides on will help.

Good luck

When turned on - a beep is all i get-keys won,t work at all. 7040 swintec typewriter


Sounds like a broken wire attached to the carrier motor. If you remove the shell from the typewriter you can see the wiring inside. I suspect one of the wires has come disconnected or broken. Replace the wiring assembly or you can try to strip the two ends of the broken wire and twist them together, then use some electrical tape to secure.

Sounds like you need a new ribbon or you are using non-Swintec compatible ribbons that are not properly aligned to your ribbon feed. Try using Swintec brand ribbons and see if this still occurs. Worst case scenario, you need to have your ribbon feed adjusted at your local dealer.

Swintec 7040 typewriter ribbon feed.


The typewriter is supposed to automatically adjust itself to the type of ribbon you have installed. Have you tried a different ribbon?
