Lift top cover up.
Move the carrier to center of machine.

Error message on print screen of 114 08


The book says nothing about this error except turn off machine for 30 seconds and try again. If this dosen't work try unplugging machine, removing the batteries and then restart. CAUTION THIS WILL CLEAR ALL MEMORY!

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.

Does it beep and type or just beep? If it types try holding code and pressing S. If you changed batteries with the machine off the memory is gone.

Ribbon is sticking


You may have a wrong ribbon, sometime the small parts where the ribbon turn gear goes into does not match up correctly. Can you turn the ribbon manually by hand, if the ribbon does not turn it will not type....

You can hook up a standard computer monitor to the typewriter, but it won't recognize color, and sometimes on eBay you can find IBM POS (point of sale) monitors that will work on the typewriter. Do you still have the typewriter?
