Smith Corona WordSmith 250

The keys in the middle of the typewriter do not work. Keys such as the y, t, r, g, h, 5, 6, etc. do not work when pushed. All of the other keys work fine. Thanks:)

    No, I didn't spill anything on it but it hasn't been used in about four years and it has been moved a few times. Is there any way I can fix the problem myself. Thanks again.

Maybe a loose keyboard connector. Did you spill anything on the keyboard?

    You can try to disassemblr the case and keyboard. Check the main connectors from the keyboard to the main logic board . Sometimes there is a little corrosion or dust interfering wih the connection. Pull out the ribbon cables, clean with compressed air, clean any obvious corrosion and reinstall. If you live anywhere near Clearwater Florida, I would check it ot for free.

The print head might have accummulated a lot of paper bits you need to clear them with a needle or just submerge the tip in petrol or ether. Caution do not submerge if its made of plastic.
