Correction tape not working

We don't use this machine very much and today the correction tape is not working. We changed to a new cartridge but it still won't work. Does it dry out?

The ribbons and lift off tapes both get old and change composition, get a fresh ribbon and L/O tape then try it.

Changing correction tape in model SL 105 I am attempting to put in a new correction tape in my Model SL 105. It appears to be moving, but I am getting no correction.


If the correction tape is moving and lifting there is a good possibility that the ribbon or correction tape are old and have changed composition or you have a non correctable ribbon.

Correction Tape


Two possibilities, one the correction tape is twisted and the wrong side is .facing the paper. The shinny side should be facing you, the dull side facing the paper. Second possibility you must make sure the ribbon is compatible with the correction tape. There are 2 types of ribbons. A correctable one (orange or yellow knob) and a multi strike (blue or purple knob on ribbon cartridge). The lift off correction tape (orange or yellow spools) only works with the correctable ribbon and the cover up correction tape (blue) works with the multistrike ribbon.
