If the ribbon is just spacing a little bit in each stroke it is probably in overstrike mode. Code comma, period or slash will get you out of the mode. I can never remember which one.

  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.

IBM WW1000 ribbon advance not working, I have checked the ribbon motor and ribbon feed follower + spring all seem OK, Is this a function board or anything I may be missing.


Be sure the Ribbon lift/feed motor is plugged in, alittle WD 40 on thw upper and lower bearings, mark the gear that engages the ribbon and type to see if it moves if it moves ikt isn't fully engaging the ribbon this happens with some generic supplies.

The ribbon will not index forward on my 345 DLE. It appears that the shaft that inserts into the cassett does not turn to move the ribbon.


if the knob on the ribbon cartridge doesn't move the ribbon when you turn the knob the direction of the arrow (on the cartridge next to the knob) you need a new ribbon

I have loaded the ribbon on my IBM Selectric II and it doesn't move forward when I type on it. What did I not do correctly? I am unable to find the manual.


On the L. side of the cassette where the ribbon comes out there is thin finger sticking up the ribbon should be to the L. of it. Be sure you are turning the take up spool top nto the left. Sometimes the arm that swings into the ribbon and drives it gets gummy and won't move into the ribbon.

Ribbon will not move when typing


If this is a wheelwriter remove the ribbon, mark the driver on the ribbon deck with some white out, type and see if it moves.
If it moves try a new ribbon, if it dosen't move put some WD40 on the upper and lower motor bearings if that dosen't help you probably need a motor or a board.

Tally t2265 'check ribbon' hardware alarm... carriage moves ok, 2 new ribbons ...that came from other machines,,,, ribbon drive seems fine, could it be encoder strip??? please help!


The check ribbon message on the 2265 indicates the printer is detecting problems with moving the print head. You have ruled out the ribbon as being the cause of the problem by using ribbons from another printer.
Befor suspecting other components check the pritner model, if the printer is a 2265+ check to ensure the correct ribbon is used. Note the ribbon for the 2265+ is different to the 2265 ribbon. The 2265+ has a ribbon sensor to detect the ribbon moving. If the printer is a 2265+ the part number for the ribon should be 062471.

If the correct ribbon is used the problem could be the timming strip which could be dirty or warn. Try cleaning this and check for damage.
The problem can also be caused by a dirty or lubricated carriage shaft, the carriage shaft should be clean and dry running - Keep clean of any type of lubricant.
The problem can also be cused by the timing station on the carraige, the carriage motor.

Don't know how to load and string the ribbon on an ibm selectric


Selectric III has two different ribbons the selectric II ribbon tha the ribbon guides are part of the macine and the "bicycle" ribbon that has the guides bilt into the ribbon. to replace the "bicycle" ribbon move pull the red lever on the right toward you, drop the ribbon in turn the knob a few times in the direction of the arrows, move the red lever back done.
The other style move the lever, drop the ribbon in, be sure the ribbon is left of the slacker finger sticking up on the left,thread it tru the guides, turn the knob inthe direction of the arrows, move red lever back,done.

First off make sure the ribbon turns freely.Take off the ribbon and turn the ribbon wheel in the direction of the arrow and see if it turns smoothly. If it turns smoothly the ribbon motor is not moving or the gear is not moving. take off the ribbon and type. See if the black ribbon drive gear on the ribbon deck moves as you type. If not the motor is N.G. or the ribbon gear clutch spring is not grabbing the gear to turn it. Lawrence
