There is probably a fold in the ribbon usually the bottom, reinstall it and be vsure it is flat between the guides.

Check to be sure the ribbon dosen't have a fold in it and is fully seated in place, be sure the platen is fully seated in the side frames, check the correction tape for proper imstallation it can rob the print if to high.

The correction feature is not working correctly. It attempts to lift the incorrect the symbol/letter, but fails. There seems to be plenty of correction tape and the ribbon seems to be on correctly ......


Be sure that the ribbon and L/O are fresh. If so be sure the L/o is installed with the dull side toward the paper and be sure the ribbons are correctable. (YELLOW OR ORANGE KNOB)

Only part of a letter appears when typed


You can try code I to increase the impression but probably the print solenoid is gummy or the plastic solenoid is broken. We sell the caps with installation instructions for 20.00 includes freight. DickyO Cleveland Business Machines 216-241-0027

Correction doesn't work


Hi:

Make sure that you are using a fresh correction tape, not one that has been sitting in a box for years. Also make sure that the correction tape is installed correctly and that the "sticky" side is facing the printed paper.

Good Luck

Be sure the tape is installed with the dull side facing the platen. The tapes are readly available but be sure it is a dry L/O tape General ribbon T355 or equivlent.

Typing


Check to be sure that the correction tape is in properly and tight. Then make sure that the ribbon (and correction tape) are between the two metal "fingers" and the cardholder (which is the metal thing that holds the paper close to the platen right in front of the ribbon) Is the ribbon moving? You should be able to hold the ribbon up and see each letter on the ribbon. Also make sure the printhammer is locked forward. You should not be able to just reach in and take the printwheel out without the ribbon in place. The only other thing I can think of, is the ribbon got twisted some how. The dull side should be towards the paper.

Letters & numbers not printing correctly


The most common reason for this is something interfering with the printwheel. Turn off machine. Take out the ribbon, then pull back on the black lever to the right of the printhammer. This will tilt the printwheel towards you. Look to see if there is anything caught in the printwheel. Also check to see if the corr tape is installed properly. Corr. tape and ribbon should both be between the two metal fingers and the metal cardholder. Push the black lever forward and look to make sure the two metal fingers are not bent into the printwheel. If they are, simply push them forward and bend them so they don't. Re-install the ribbon, making sure it goes on the other side of the fingers. Turn machine back on and test machine. If it still doesn't work, you will need a trained technition to determine the problem.
