Remove the ribbon cassette and verify there is a print wheel in the machine."don't put the ribbon back in yet. Push the carriage part way over to the right, stop, then switch the power on. The carriage should go to the LHS and the print wheel should "home" itself. If the unit is beeping at this stage...check the flex multi stand cable coming from the carriage. On earlier models the wires could sometimes break a couple of inches from the carriage. The carriage and cable will have to be replaced if this is the case.

How to change the correction tape?


Changing the Correction Tape

1) Move the print carrier to the center of the platen using the SPACE or BS key.

2) To replace the correction tape, lift out the typing ribbon cassette (see Changing The Ribbon Cassette) and remove the two spools of the lift off tape by pulling them outwards.

3) Place the empty spool of new tape on the left pin so that the tape winds clockwise. Place the tape around the left guide. Pull the tape around the right

guide and place the loaded spool on the right pin so that the tape unwinds counter-clockwise.

Note: Make sure the sticky side of the tape is facing the platen.

4) Manually turn the left-hand spool in the clockwise direction, tightening the tape until resistance is felt.

5) Replace the typing ribbon cassette.
6) Press the CODE + = (SETTING) key.

Changing the Ribbon Cassette

1) Move the print carrier to the center of the platen using the SPACE or BS key.

2) Hold the ribbon cassette on both sides and lift up the front portion (where the ribbon is exposed) to remove the cassette.

3) To insert a new cassette, place the back end of the cassette on the cassette

holder on the carrier and gently press down on the front of the cassette unit it clicks into place.

4) Turn the ribbon feed knob counter-clockwise again to take up any slack in the ribbon.
5) Presss the CODE + = (SETTING) key.

Good Luck!

This typewriter has not been used in years. Every time I plug it in though it starts beeping. Why?


Take the chrome bar that is inside where the carriage is(the assembly the ribbon goes on) and put light weight oil on both sides of it and move it back and forth so it will free it up.There are two bars in it. Put the oil on the bar toward the back and put white grease on the one that is closest to you. This should take care of it. If not make sure the hammer is pressed all the way up against the card scale.(black lever on the left) and that you have ribbon left in the cassette. Kevin

The keys on the left side of my circa 1933 Royal typewriter gets stuck on the ribbon everytime. Also my ribbon doesn't advance. Help?!


Hi:
The most likely problem is there is dirt inside the ribbon basket. This is the area where the type bar (this is the bar with the actual letter on it) ends. They all fit into a semi circle area. If you can find something very narrow and thin with a hook on it you can use it to clean out the areas where each type bar goes. Then try to lightly lube the entire basket right where the type bars pivot with something light like sewing machine or 3 in 1 0il. As far as the ribbon reverse goes it might be as simple as making sure that the ribbon is being fed through the ribbon reverse forks which are usually located left of each ribbon spool.

Good luck

Nakajima AE 800 will not underline words with new ribbon


Check to be sure the ribbon is fully down and latched, also be sure the L/O tape is not sitting to high and stealing the underscore.

Kenmore oasis dryer cycle signal beeping constantly


This symptom indicates a stuck key on the user interface control board.
Replacing this control board would most likely fix this type of problem.


You can order this part from SearsPartsDirect.com, RepairClinic.com, PartSelect.com etc.



Before buying any parts I suggest you access the interface ribbon and disconnect it and then connect it back and see if there is any improvement.


You might also remove the interface from the console and check the console for any stuck buttons.

Remember to unplug the unit first.

Beeping sound when powering unit on


Have you simply pushed the carriage back to the middle? If it is like the ML100 (it looks the same) you can just push it over ...with the pwoer off. Then put in you new ribbon. And this time, when you turn it on, it is the new ribbon that hits a switch on the underside of the keyboard, located to the upper left. If you do not have a ribbon installed, it will travel all the way to the left, and beep, beep, beep, beep. ,,,, The switch is hit with the ribbon housing.

F0 error - My GE Over displays an F0 error & constantly beeps


Appu, the F0 error for this built in means there is a shorted or stuck off key. Sometimes this can be resolved by removing the keypad ribbon cable from the board and cleaning the ends with an eraser. If that doesn't work, you want to find out whether its the board or keypad by ohming the ribbon cable, 3 to 4, probes on the conductor side...should read 125 to 1750 ohms while pressing the off key. Catriver..post back.
