I have the same typewriter. If I remember correctly, beeping very fast means there is a problem with the printer wheel. You might try (with the typewriter off) pulling back the wheel, reinserting the wheel, and turning on the typewriter. If that doesn't work, get another wheel (they're cheap online if you buy a Swintec wheel rather than an Olympia wheel - same goes for ribbons). The only other thing I can think is that the ribbon is out, needs reinserted, or there is no correction tape in the machine. But I think it has something to do with a broken or misplaced wheel.

I'm looking for a power cord for an Olympia Electronic Compact typewriter. Where can I find this?


It is a two-prong cord, and the end that goes into the typewriter looks almost like a fat #8.

Some printers and portable radios use a similar type of cord.
Basically, if it fits in the typewriter, it will work.

Prices vary wildly, from $12.00 for a brand new one at Radio Shack (The Source) to about $2.00 in a second hand store if you're willing to look around.

Turned on the typewrite and after it goes through its setting, it starts to beep continuously and nothing works! How can we fix this?


Lubricate the mainshaft that the carrier travels on with a 10 weight oil. Do not use WD 40. Wipe shaft with a soft cloth and reluricate.

I need an instruction manual for an Olympia Electronic Compact typewriter


I have this typewriter and some of the documentation that came with it. I used it for years (still do for mailing labels). Perhaps I can answer your questions if you let me know what you need to know? It's a fairly simple typewriter.

Need manual


I have an olympia international electronic compact typewriter with the manual. I don't want to separate the manual from the typewriter (though I'd like to get rid of both), but maybe I could help somehow.
