The ribbon will not click on so my typewriter won't work. Do you have a large diagram of the inside so I can compare the ribbon and correction tape?

I put in a new wheel and new ribbon with correction tape; was working fine but all of a sudden, it won't print correctly. It prints on the very top edge of the ribbon and the letters do not print...


On the older WW's there is a large black plastic gear on the R. side of the printer they do get tooth for tooth. try wiggling it to free it up, with the power off it should move easily.

Replacement of correction tape


The correction tape cartridge "piggybacks" under the ribbon cartridge. Flip your black ribbon over, line up the front dges of the two ribbons and gently press down on the correction ribbon 'till the two wing tabs at the top are attached to the slots at the top of the black ribbon. Be sure to take up any slack in the ribbons BEFORE re- installing.

Replaced Typewriter Ribbon & Now Correction Tape doesn't work


Is the ribbon that you installed a correctable one? It should have a yellow or orange knob to turn it. If that knob is blue, you installed a multistrike or non-correctable ribbon.

The only other thing is you have the correction tape in backwards

CORRECTION TAPE


correction tapes will not work with multistrike ribbons. You have to use a correctable ribbon. If you can find a white out tape, it will work with multistrike. What model typewroter do you have?

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.

Make sure that the correction tape is place in the guides one on each side small metal guides, remove ribbon to see, it should be behind ribbon guide (closes to you). Dry lift-off tape only(#3015)
