Question about Nakajima AE-740 Typewriter

Nakajima AE710 typewriter

We use this Nakajima typewrite to type on a two-part carbonless form and now it seems that the ribbon just won't print on these forms. It works fine on plain copy paper. We have changed the ribbon twice, & changed printwheel but nothing helps. The imprint is going through on the second copy however. Any ideas as to what could be causing this?

Thanks for any help.

    Thanks for the suggestion of a fabric ribbon. We could not find one for the AE710. We also called the printer and they have not changed the paper on the form. This problem must be in the setting of the typewriter but the impression control is okay.

    Any other ideas would be appreciated.

The forms obviously have a glossy surface, a fabric or multi strike ribbon will work. There is a impression control oh the l. side of the keyboard and also a bold feature, try max impression and bold.

My typewritter wont impress even on hardest impression setting. I think the Ribbon might not be turning eventhough it looks like it is.

If it sounds like it is hitting the paper puy in a multi part form if the copy is OK then you have a ribbon problem, put in a new ribbon.
If there is no print on copy be sure the print wheel is properly latched in place.

With a startype 3, do you have to use the delay function ( where you type then return to get type to print)?

The mastertype 3 is the same machine as the nakajima ae710. Go to NADIST.COM, click on current models you will find a manual there, it will tell you how to get out of the delay print mode.

The typewriter doesn't completely print the whole letter, only sometimes and sporadic and not all letters are affected. Cleaned platen, and checked print wheel . All letters seem to be raised. What could...

Fiest put in a milti part form and try it if the copies are good you have a ribbon problem.
Try it without the correction tape. Look at the ribbon to see if it has folds in it or the letters are overstriking on the ribbon

The L/O should be dry non tacky.

Nakajima ae-710 does not give a clear print. I suspect the striker pin. How do I lubricate it?

You should not have to lubricate the "striker"....type some characters then remove the ribbon cassette and see if the characters are spaced properly or are typing on top of each other on the carbon ribbon. You may have put the machine into a "multi-strike" can get a manual at

Nakajima typewriter model AE830. New ribbon installed. when typing printed letters appear only lightly printed on paper. Any way to adjust?

Check to see if the ribbon is moving, then advance the ribbon manually about 6 inches, the ribbon may be old and they do go bad especially the exposed part. If the ribbon isn't advancing Code peroid, comma or slash will get you out of the overstrike mode.
