The ribbon drive on this model are gear driven..a .may be off, a loose set screw on one of the gears..the ribbon may be the wrong one or it has a ribbon reverse lever on the side of the machine, this should be free of binds.
Hope this helps........

Olivetti Underwood Studio 44 ribbon won't advance.


Remove the top cover, remove ribbon spools, press a key and grab it with your finger, note the mechanical motions toward the ribbon advancer movement, usually found near the center of the ribbon holder or could be on the outside edge also, there is a reverser mechanism also that should be fully to one side or the other, it switches the ribbon direction to avoid a 'dead end' while typing. By moving the key toward the platen and away it should drive the ribbon mount spool by a shifting drive lever of some kind. If you cannot resolve this issue, take it to a rare typewriter repair shop, it is too hard to explain in this format, and mechanical skills are involved, hope you have them, ;)

What kind of ribbon does a Royal Ensign typewriter take?


This was made in Holland so it probably takes a DIN spool they are no longer made you you may be able to use a universal spool.

I have a circa 1940's-50's Royal Desktop Typewriter. The ribbon that was already on it was rather worn and severely faded so I bought new ribbon for it. The only available ribbon was a red-black silk inked...


You have the ribbon on wrong. The ribbon dosen't feed off the spool but take up onto the spool. install the ribbon so that the moving spool is taking up the ribbon.

The keys on the left side of my circa 1933 Royal typewriter gets stuck on the ribbon everytime. Also my ribbon doesn't advance. Help?!


Hi:
The most likely problem is there is dirt inside the ribbon basket. This is the area where the type bar (this is the bar with the actual letter on it) ends. They all fit into a semi circle area. If you can find something very narrow and thin with a hook on it you can use it to clean out the areas where each type bar goes. Then try to lightly lube the entire basket right where the type bars pivot with something light like sewing machine or 3 in 1 0il. As far as the ribbon reverse goes it might be as simple as making sure that the ribbon is being fed through the ribbon reverse forks which are usually located left of each ribbon spool.

Good luck

How to load ribbon and rewind ribbon.


The ribbon should reverse itself if it working properly. Just to the indide of each ribbon is a reversing that the ribbon should go thru, Move that arm away from the empty spool and type a few letters it should reverse. DickyO

Royal Portable typewriter ribbon


Hi, I have a Royal Companion Portable from 1940's. I bought new ribbons at mytypewriter.com (select the "Royal Portable" ribbon). It fits. Anyway if it doesn't it's not an expensive mistake, but I researched this and apparently all vintage Royal Portables have the same standard ribbon. Worked out in my case. Good luck!

IBM Selectric used ribbon won't wind into spool


The ribbon sometime gets wrapped around the ribbon driver,One lever on the right side only releases the lift off tape for removal the other is for ribbon removal, also check that the ribbon is on the outside of the ribbon tensioner where the ribbon exits the cartridge on the left side ( a wire thing with a plastic tube on it.
