Ribbon doesn't advance on Silent Smith-Corona Typewriter

I have an old Silent Smith-Corona typewriter. The ribbon spools do not advance as I type so the ribbon just stays in one place. Thanks.

SOURCE: return arm on smith-corona silent typewriter does not advance

The linespace selector lever is probably at zero 0
try moving it to 1 1 1/2 or 2. There is also a detent lever that releases the ratchet of the roller. You should feel a bumping when you move the roller wheel.

Need a ribbon for my smith corona corsair manual typewriter


This ribbon is no longer made, you may find one on ebay but it will be very old. Your best bet is to wrap a new ribbon onto your spools.

I have a new black and red ribbon for my Smith Corona Silent Super typewriter. I took the old one out a long time ago. I know the red half goes on the bottom and the black on top but I am not sure which...


Most ribbons wind to the outside of the spools. Take the ribbon off, type and watch the take up spindels to see whitch way it moves and install the ribbon that way.

Smith Corona 3L (old one)


Not sure what the 3L is, some of the machines had preset tabs( every 10 or 12 spaces) if it uses a fabric ribbon on two spools it does not have a ccorrection system othe than using a black and white ribbon the white part is to cover up the mistake.
