Question about IBM Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

This machine gets used just a few times a year for straight typing. I was asked to replace the ribbon as the letters weren't appearing on the paper when the keys were pressed. No one knew when the last ribbon was installed so I got a new ribbon and corrector cartridge and installed them. The problem appears to be that the ribbon does not advance once its installed.

I'll assume this is an ibm ww. Just below the ribbon deck on the right is the ribbon feed motor try na little WD40 on the upper and lower bearings they do gum up also be sure the ribbon motor is plugged in.

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.

Nakajima typewriter model AE830. New ribbon installed. when typing printed letters appear only lightly printed on paper. Any way to adjust?


Check to see if the ribbon is moving, then advance the ribbon manually about 6 inches, the ribbon may be old and they do go bad especially the exposed part. If the ribbon isn't advancing Code peroid, comma or slash will get you out of the overstrike mode.

IBM Wheelwriter 6-Letters striking paper above


Put in a multi part form and type if the carbons come out OK the the ribbon isn't lifting, Wiggle the big black gear on the R. side of the carrier back and forth. They do get tooth for tooth when they get old. If the print on the copies id bad or not there you need a print solenoid cap. We sell them for 20,00 including instructiond and shipping.

Typing only partial letters


The ribbon is probably not in the guide properly, or is not coming up all the way. Switch the ribbon selector from blk /red and back a few times. If the ribbon is in wrong rethread it. If it is electronic, the ribbon is in wrong.

My typewriter doesn't type..won't display letters, but keys work.


alot of the brother t/w's have 2 cam assemblies under ribbon holder. 1 operates the print hammer and 1 operates the correction ribbon lift. sometimes these will hang or lockup. sometimes turning on and off a few times will take care of it, but sometimes it needs to be worked on by a t/w tech. if you look when you type a character, most likely the print hammer is not firing or it is striking the correction ribbon instead of the black ribbon.

Two lines show on my 5x7 prints


If the machine has mainly printed 6x4,When you
go to print 7x5 the edges of the head and rollers
tend to be dirty and will leave the two stripes along
the edge of the prints.Use the cleaning ribbon and the
sticky pad supplied with a new box of paper to clean the machine.Depending on how bad it is it may take a few try's.To do this switch the machine on and enter the control panel by tapping twice on the top left of the monitor- It will ask for a four digit code - Uless it has been changed this will be 9999 click
Enter/Ok - then click on the top far right ikon and
the screen you see will have a greyed out ikon
bottom middle - Now replace the print ribbon with
the white cleaning ribbon supplied with the machine
and the greyed out button becomes active - Click on
this button and the machine asks if you want to clean
it click Enter/Ok - About 10" of paper will then be
driven from the machine place the sticky pad as per
the drawing on it onto the paper and press Enter/Ok
- The paper will move in and out a few time and then eject a big piece and some small pieces of paper - Then remove the white cleaner ribbon and replace with the print ribbon and press the green return button
in the bottom right of the screen to return to normal use.This should be performed every two - three boxes
of paper.
