  1. Is the daisy wheel locked in the forward position?
    1. Pull the black lever back, away from the platen.
    2. Lift out the daisy wheel and inspect it for damage; replace the daisy wheel if it is damaged.
    3. Re-insert the daisy wheel and push the black lever towards the platen until it locks in place.
  2. Is the ribbon moving?
    1. Lift the ribbon cartridge out of the typewriter
    2. Inspect the ribbon for damage
    3. If the ribbon is silver, it is exhausted and must be replaced
    4. If the hammer has been striking in one place, there will be a clear area near the center of the ribbon.
    5. Turn the colored knob on the left side of the ribbon cartridge counter-clockwise to advance the ribbon a small amount. Replace the ribbon if it will not advance.
    6. Re-insert the ribbon
  3. Turn on the typewriter, insert a piece of paper into the typewriter and type a few letters
    1. Did the hammer move forward?
    2. If the hammer moved, did the ribbon advance with each keystroke?
If the hammer did not move or the ribbon did not advance, the typewriter will require service. If the typewriter still does not make an impression on the paper, your typewriter will require service.

Ribbon sits higher than striking mechanism. Machine is not rotating it down into normal operating position. Any solution?? Tks


Take the ribbon off, watch the ribbon deck while typing and correcting. Is it making the proper movements, lower for print, higher for correction, is the ribbon motor just under the R. side or the deck moving? If the ribbon motor isn't moving check to see if its cable is connected and Put som WD40 on the upper and lower bearings.

Service eror


Hello my friend,if you mean Service Error 5100 then you must know that i caused because the movement of the Print Head Holder is blocked.So you must clear the paper jam or foreign object that is preventing the Print Head Holder from moving. Cancel printing from your computer, then turn off the machine, and turn it back on again.Let me know the results:)

Nothing shows on the paper when I type.


Remove and observe the ribbon, wind the feedwheel to see if the ribbon if moving at all. Make sure that the correction tape is not in front of the printheel and installed properly. (electronic machines use non-sticky lift-off tapes).. Observe the hammer movement. The ribbon winder in the cartrige could be defective, the ribbon ffeed mechanism in the machine may need repair/replacement. Make sure there is a printwheel in the machine.

The paper will not go through my shredder


Can you actually see the cutter blades rotating? I have seen gears broken and you can hear the motor running but no blade movement. Remove the screws lift the top off carefully because their is a short ribbon cable connected to the main board and can easily be damaged. Of course unplug from power outlet first.
Gears and motor can be puurchased.

You may need a ribbon motor or motor board, however on the older wheelwriters sometimes the gear mesh gets sloppy and gears jam tooth for tooth. Try moving the ribbon lift gear/cam on rt. side of the carrier by hand with the machine off if it won't move that's the trouble. Wiggle it back and forth and it may free up.
