IBM Wheelwriter 2, the bottom half of the letters are not printing. It is not the ribbon because I have changed it out.


Two things come to mind for this problem. First try pushing down firmly on both ends of the black rubber platen roller. Sometimes the black plastic latch on either side may break causing one side of the roller to lift up causing partial print. The other possibility is the ribbon is not lifting correctly. A technician can adjust the ribbon lift. After typing a few letters, take the ribbon out and look at the letters on the ribbon.Are they in the middle of the ribbon or are they at the top or bottom of the ribbon? middle of ribbon is correct.

TYPE WRITER DISPLAYS BUT WONT TYPE ANYTHING


There are many "WONT TYPE ANYTHING" symptoms and reasons, like:
is the ribbon installed? Is it installed correctly? Is the carriage moving?

Some description of your concern would be of great help.
I guess you don't have the User Manual.
Here you'll find the PDF version of the manual.

Good luck.

The correction tape is not working properly. Wheelwriter 1000


If everything was working befor the ribbon & L/O change Either the L/o is not properly attached to the ribbon or the ribbon and or L/O are old. Make some corrections then remove and look at the L/o, if the letters are near the center of the L/O the problem is the ribbon or L/o is old, if the print is on the top of the tape it is not properly attached to the ribbon or not coming out or the cassette properly.
If you have a fresh set or another T/W that works swap the ribbons and look at how they are attached.

For a picture ngo to lexmark.com and click your way to publications you will find a downloadable manual there.

INSTALLING CORRECTION TAPE ON A BROTHER SX4000


1) Use the [SPACE BAR] or [BACKSPACE] to move the carrier to the center of the platen.
2) Open the top cover
3) Remove the cassette ribbon, if installed
4)Pull off both spools, pressing against the correction tape with your thumbs. Bring it back to a position parallel with the platen, and lift it up and out.
5)Pass the new tape through the left guide, behind the ribbon guide, and out through the right guide. The rough (sticky) side of the tape should face the platen.
6) Attach the feeder spool to the pin on the left
7) Attach the take-up spool to the pin on the right
8) Turn the take-up spool counter-clockwise until a small amount of white tape has wound around it.
9) Replace the cassette ribbon and close the top cover.
10) Press [CODE] + [RESET] to move the carrier to the previous position.

Royal Portable typewriter ribbon


Hi, I have a Royal Companion Portable from 1940's. I bought new ribbons at mytypewriter.com (select the "Royal Portable" ribbon). It fits. Anyway if it doesn't it's not an expensive mistake, but I researched this and apparently all vintage Royal Portables have the same standard ribbon. Worked out in my case. Good luck!
