Re: Correction Ribbon

If the machine is making allthe correction movements, be sure the correction tape is installed with the dull side facing the paper.

The correction ribbon is installed on a separate mechanism on a typewriter. If you look between the regular ribbon guide and the card holder you should see the correction ribbon guides on the right and left hand side of the card holder. the spool holders will be to the right and left of the correct ribbon guides. This is true only if the typewriter has a correction mechanism installed. Some machines do not have a correction mechanism. Correction is achieved by using a correction tab which is held by hand, in front of the letter to be removed, or white out. Some correction tapes attach to the bottom of the print ribbon.

I have a brother GX6750 typewriter do not understand how to install correction ribbon

well, the correction ribbon is for erasing mistakes, it literally, pulls the ink off the paper, but you have to hit the correction button, the type writer will back up and pull the ink, but you would hear ait and be able to tell the diff. I think maybe you should check 1st that the ink ribbon is the 1 closest to you, and the correction ribbon is behind the ink ribbon- also make sure they are in the correct direction- ink side of the ribbon facing your paper- sticky side of the correction ribbon facing the paper- so its you, the ink ribbon and then the correction ribbon then the paper

Directions arent clear enough in manual to change correction tape

Install the full spool on the L. side thread the tape around the guide rolls with the dull side towards the paper, put take up spool on R. spindle, wind up slack.

It may be easier if you remove the ribbon and print wheel first.

Replaced typing ribbon, now correcting ribbon will not work. Does not pick up

Be sure that the new ribbon is fresh, and that the knob is yellow or orange. If you had the correction tape off that mit has the dull side towards the paper.

Many brother type writers have two cam assemblies under ribbon holder. One operates the print hammer and the other operates the correction ribbon lift. sometimes they gets stuck or lock themselves up. turning on and off a few times will take care of it, but sometimes it needs to be worked on by a 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.

Let us know if you want to know something more else please accept the suggestion.

Also make sure correction tape is dull side toward paper. Shinny side should face operator...
