Yellow light is lit (Empty/Pause) but there is paper in printer.


I've found that if the ribbon core is slipping on the TTR supply hub, it causes the ribbon sensor to think the ribbon is not moving. This, in turn, causes the yellow light to come on. Take off the ribbon and replace hub core locking bracket (p/n: 065375-003). I have also found you can bend the bracket enough to work if you don't have any on hand. I hope this helps with your problem.

Please can you send me a picture of how to install the ribbon in to the Remington Standard No.12 typewriter. Or tell me how to thread the ribbon.


Hi, first of all there is no picture diagram for this and this method am giving you is what has been used to install ribbon on different typewriters.
  • Remove the existing ribbon. Note the path that the ribbon takes as it goes from one spool to the other.
  • Roll the ribbon entirely on to one of the two reels if your replacement ribbon didn't come with a take-up reel. If your new ribbon has a take-up reel, skip this step.
  • Attach the end of the new ribbon to the take-up reel if your new ribbon doesn't already have one. In most cases, there is a sharp arrow shaped piece on the reel. Use that arrow to penetrate the ribbon and make a few winds of ribbon around the take-up reel.
  • Slip the take-up reel on the take-up spindle on the right side of the typewriter. Align any tabs designed to turn the reel to move the ribbon during typing.
  • Feed the ribbon through the path you noted when removing the old ribbon and place the main ribbon on the spindle. Give the take-up reel a few turns to make sure the ribbon moves freely through the typewriter mechanism.

Turntable not turning - ribbon under turntable dislodged.


Sounds like your belt is shot. Go to www.mcmelectronic.com They have belts and belt kits which will solve your problem. To replace the belt remove the platter. May mean removing a circlip off the stem. Then lift the platter up, remove the bad belt and install the new belt. Generally the belt has to be reinstalled on the platter by holding it with a screwdriver while you turn the platter slowly and work the belt on. If I didn't already say, remove the rubber cover on the platter. It will reveal a hole in the platter where you need to do the alignment work. Let me know how you make out.

How do I replace the ribbon in an IMB typewriter


press down the ribbon rewind lever on the left side of keyboard until all of ribbon is wound around left spool. Remove used ribbon spool and replace with new one. Guide the end of the new ribbon through the guides to the right take up spool - looks like a bow tie. Slip the metal end of ribbon in slot and you're ready to type.
