I installed a new ribbon but no type appears on my paper.

It is possible that your print solenoid is bad . You may need a repair kit that has a plastic cap that goes on the end of the solenoid. Any typewriter technician can fix that in a short amount of time.

Paper Bail Load lever advances paper all the way out of machine. How do I change this? dianna

With the machine on pull the paper bail forward, let it run until it quits, then use the paper down button and run the paper back 20 lines or so, hold the code button and pull the paper insert forward. That re-sets the stopping place, keep doing this until you get the paper insert to stop where you want it.
