This is a manual typewriter, the harder you press the darker the print. You might try a fresh ribbon.

Where can I find the vertical typebar adjustment?


Guessing the buffer resting stops for smalls and possibly capitals have moved ir come loose? They should be adjustable with a small spanner and screwdriver. Or if not adjustable you might have to slightly slightly bend the resting stops! However before doing any off the a both check the plate under machine where the shift lock rests. That might be very loose abd give some similar problems. Best

Where is the bold key


The 8014S does not have a BOLD key. However, you can do two things to make your print darker:

(1) Set the Impression Control Switch (three dots located above the 10/12/15 selector) to the largest dot.

(2) Turn on double-strike mode by simultaneously pressing the ESC and O keys. (To turn off double-strike mode, simultaneously press the ESC and & keys.)

My olympia electric typewriter is always on capital letters no matter how i unlock the keys/shift...won't go back to small letters.


You didn't give a model but there should be a key that says above or on the front of it caps or caps lock the code and that key should do it.

Olympia Traveller de Luxe: ribbon not lifting as key strikes.


Hi, The most common cause for this problem is that the colour selection lever is set on white. Try setting it to Black or Red and see if that solves the problem. Ralph, Dial A Ribbon.

Be sure the pitch selection is correct. If it is set to PS when using a 10,12 or 15 pitch wheel it will select incorrect letters.
