Question about Smith Corona Wordsmith 200 Typewriter

1 Answer

Repeating Key I work at a school. The first time I turned the typewriter on it keeps typing one letter (a "Y"). I tried prying up on the "Y" no luck. I took out the daisy wheel and ribbon - No change. It's very humid in our school. Could this be the problem?

Humidity could be a factor but more likely something got vspilled in the keyboard ans is shorting out some ofthe traces, you need a tech to open and clean or replace the velum.

My IBM Selectric II typewriter skips part of a letter when typing envelopes and going over the overlapped thickness. Even repeating the letter doesn't help.


That particular key is not hitting the paper flush as it should. Carefully try adjusting it in the direction of the miss.

When you type, each character you strike actually types another letter.


first try turn typewriter off, (button on left panel toward the back), then turn it back on, and while hold down the CODE button, press RESET key, the whole print head will move and reset

if that doesn't work, power off again, open the cover, release the lever to the Daisy Wheel, and inspect that Daisy Wheel - mine has a bent forward letter, and another letter was kinda stuck to the side of another letter... I gently fix both letters, put the Daisy Wheel back in, firmly lock it in place with the lever, close the cover... and voila, it works like a charm.

While you have it open you might want to dust (use the cleaning spray can duster)... You wouldn't believe what I found in my typewriter... Good luck!

If that doesn't work, I would replace the Daisy Wheel.

The striker appears not to strike the Daisy wheel letters firm enough to produce a dark and clear letter. Many times the result is a letter not fully printed and it appears to be lighter along the left...


Please check the ink ribbon. There are two types of ribbons. The plastic one can be used once and if you try it the second time then there is no guarantee that all letters will appear fine and legible. (as may be happening in your case). The other is the cloth ribbon. This can be reused and it keeps fading as you keep repeating it. But in this case all letters are faded and nor selective.

When i turn it on it will beep every letter i enter but won't type anything it is a swintec model-600


try putting the machine in test mode. You can do this by holding down the margin release key while turning it on. Keep holding it down until it starts typing by itself. Then turn it off and on again and see if it works.
