My smith corona sl 570 is not printing the letters c,v, b and n in both lower case and upper case. how can i fix this?


You have a key board problem. It may just need disassembly and cleaning but more likely it needs a new contact velum.

The i seems stuck on Smith Corona


Sound like a small spring is off the typebar cam.If you move the I by hand you may be able to see if the spring os off or there is a bind in the typebar. This will also cause repesating
Hope this helps,

Smith Corona 300 DLE--toggle from italics to normal type


To switch fonts on this typewriter, you need to change the letter wheel. Unfortunately, there is no practical way to change the letter wheel in the middle of a document.
