Since you are not exactly sure what model Smith Corona you have I can only guess at the trouble you are having. Look on the left side of your keyboard for a slide level for the 10, 12 and 15 pitch selection. If it is in 15 pitch select either 10 or 12 pitch. Or, "If" one of your key tops have the word, "pitch" on it you might need to hold down the code key and the key that has the word, pitch on it.

How to change font from 12 to 10


IBM Wheelwriters automatically know the pitch by the printwheel that is inserted. If you want 12 pitch, you have to insert a 12 pitch printwheel, same for 10, 15, and PS.

How to change the pitch?


Here ya go...

Margins and Tabs
Margins and tabs for both Type Mode and Mem Mode are set in Type
Mode, but can be changed in Mem Mode when text is recalled for
editing. Margins and tabs are set using the typing scale which appears
on the display in Type Mode. A blinking cursor indicates the typing
position. The letter “L” indicates your left margin setting. The letter “R”
indicates your right margin setting.
NOTE: In Mem Mode, the margins and tabs used when the text
is created will be saved with the text and recalled with it,
even if they have been changed.
Margins
In Type Mode, to signal that you are near the right margin, the
typewriter will beep 5 spaces before the margin. In Mem Mode, the text
will wrap automatically when you print.
Margins are preset depending on the pitch setting, which is the number
of characters per inch. They are:
10 Pitch 12 Pitch 15 Pitch
(Pica) (Elite) (Micro)
Left Margin 12 14 18
Right Margin 72 86 108
New margin settings remain until changed again.
1. Move the Mode Selector to Type. A typing scale appears on
the display.
2. Move the cursor using the Spacebar or Back Space to the desired left
margin setting on the scale.
3. Press Margin.
4. Move the cursor using the Spacebar to the desired right margin
setting on the typing scale.
5. Press Code + Margin. A beep confirms each new margin setting.
6. You can change to Mem Mode, if desired.

Take care,

Try rebooting the computer and press F8 at one second intervals before the Windows splash screen shows up and select Safe Mode. If it boots try to uninstall it from there.

SC 329 code Aficio 550


SC 329: Laser Beam Pitch Adjustment Error
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

The LD unit home position sensor does not detect an on condition while changing the LD unit position for correcting the LD position or changing the DPI.


Instructions from the Service Manual below...

.

5.4.3 LASER BEAM PITCH ADJUSTMENT
There are two laser beam pitch adjustment procedures: one for 400 dpi, and one
for 600 dpi. These adjustments use the following SP modes.
· SP2-109-1: Laser Beam Pitch Adjustment – 400 dpi
· SP2-109-2: Laser Beam Pitch Adjustment – 600 dpi
· SP2-109-3: Laser Beam Pitch Initial Setting – 400 dpi
· SP2-109-4: Laser Beam Pitch Initial Setting – 600 dpi
· SP2-902-2, no.12: IPU Test Pattern – Cross Stitch – 400 dpi
· SP2-902-2, no.13: IPU Test Pattern – Cross Stitch – 600 dpi

1. Perform SP2-109-8 (Beam Pitch Data Reset).

2. Input the value for 400 dpi that is printed on the LD unit into SP2-109-1.
Use the value printed after “P” on the new LD unit as shown below.
NOTE: Do not use values printed after a “V”.

(These value numbers are on a sticker inside the machine with a UPC code on it. The numbers are just under the UPC barcode. And example number looks like this: "15980300151P: 120, 172", so the example 400 dpi value here is "120".)

3. Press the “Enter” key.

4. Perform SP2-109-3.

5. Print the 400-dpi test pattern onto A3 (11”x17”) paper using SP2-902-2 no.12
(cross stitch). (See Service Tables - Test Pattern Printing - Section 4.2.3, pasted below.)

6. Write the value of SP2-109-1 on the test pattern which was input at step 2.

7. Change the value of SP2-109-1 and print another test pattern, repeating steps
2 to 5. Print about 5 patterns with different values for SP2-109-1 (e.g. “48”, “96”,
“192”, “240”).

8. Check this test pattern. If the laser beam pitch is not correct, the image looks
like a black vertical stripe pattern.
NOTE: If the laser beam pitch is correct, the vertical stripe is not so noticeable.
If the value is not correct, the vertical stripe pattern is darker.

9. Adjust the laser beam pitch position until the thin lines are of uniform thickness
(no striping effect should appear on the printout), doing steps 2, 3, and 4. (In
step 2, input a value which is estimated to be correct, then do steps 3 and 4,
then if necessary go back to step 2 and try another value.)

10. After adjusting the laser beam pitch for 400 dpi, adjust the laser beam pitch for
600 dpi, using the same procedure as for 400 dpi (use the SP modes for 600
dpi).

.

4.2.3 TEST PATTERN PRINTING (SP2-902)
NOTE: Do not operate the machine until the test pattern is printed out completely.
Otherwise, an SC may occur.

1. Access the SP mode which contains the test pattern you need.

2. Press exit, then touch the “Copy Mode” key on the operation panel to access
the copy mode display.

3. Select the paper size.

4. Press the “Start” key to print the test pattern.

5. After checking the test pattern, exit copy mode by touching the “SP Mode” key.
Reset the test pattern to 0.

6. Exit the SP mode.

These adjusments listed in the manual require removal of a service panel and mechanical adjustment of the laser mounts, so it should be done by a qualified technician.

However, these test procedures can indicate whether or not this is the problem with your printer.

Font size won't change


The font is determined by the printwheel. The pitch (spacing) is determined by the slide switch on the left of the keyboard 10, 12, or 15 spaces to the inch.

Need to change the font size


you would have to buy a new printwheel and change the pitch setting (which is a switch on the left side of the keyboard tha has 10, 12, 15, PS printed next to it) or just changing the pitch setting may get you the desired results. it won't hurt anything to change the settings, it just changes the spacing. The PS setting only works on a PS printwheel, any other kind will just print the wrong letters.

Sc 322 on a 3045. cudnt figure out how to fix this problem. everytime i switch it on n off sc code disappears, once i print the paper stops at the registration roller and brings up the sc code. dont...


Another poblem with this machine is that the sync detect for the 400 dpi and 600 dpi could be off. Go into service modes by pressing the yellow clear modes key then pressing the numbers 1 0 7 then hold done the red stop key till you see the display change. Now go into copy sp, then hit the 2 in the window {drum}, next use the page down button located in the middle of the screen till you see the one that says 2109 LD Beam Pitch Adjust. Go to number 2109-8 beam pitch data reset. execute then go to 2109-1 and set it to 144 then hit pound. Now go to 2109-3 and execute. last go to 2109-2 and set it to 168 then hit pound. Now go to 2109-4 and execute. exit out of the service modes window. now try to run a copy and a print. If these fail the you either need to clean the laser assembly, a polygonnal mirror moror or laser drive unit.

Just a question...can the font size be changed?


Yes for one, smaller pitch such as a 12 pitch such as Prestige Elite or Coutier 12. You can also get a 15 pitch wheel if your machine has that feature. Ther is button the keyboard that lets you choose between 10 (Pica) 12 (Elite) or 15 Pitch. Good Luck
