Question about Lexmark Wheelwriter 15 Series II Typewriter
My boss (in his seventies!) uses an old Selectric typewriter, the model that uses correction tape. The used ribbon suddenly will not wind onto the spool on the right side of the cartridge. He asked me to take a look at it, because he can't figure out why it won't move. I am somewhat mechanically inclined, but could not seem to get anything to move or even to remove the cartridge. The lever on the right side, which I presume allows the cartridge removal, does move easily back and forth. Any suggestions as to what might be causing the problem? Thanks!
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.
