Question about Swintec 7040 Typewriter

Swintec 7040 typewriter ribbon feed.

The correctable film ribbon on my swintec 7040 typewriter feeds as though it were a multistrike ribbon i.e. each character overlaps the previous one on the ribbon).

I thought I rembered that you could switch the ribbon type, that is, the feed action from the keyboard using the code key and some other.

Does anyone have any information about this?

Your help is greatly appreciated.

The typewriter is supposed to automatically adjust itself to the type of ribbon you have installed. Have you tried a different ribbon?

Sounds like you need a new ribbon or you are using non-Swintec compatible ribbons that are not properly aligned to your ribbon feed. Try using Swintec brand ribbons and see if this still occurs. Worst case scenario, you need to have your ribbon feed adjusted at your local dealer.
