I can't find a remington 15 listed anywhere but you can try this.
Almost all typewriters use a 1/2 in. ribbon buy a ribbon and wrap it on your spools this is a little messy but sometimes it's the only way.

How do I change the ribbon in a Remington sperry rand typewriter?


I was a typewriter tech for seven years. To see if your ribbon needs replace gently pinch it with your finger you should get some ink on them, if not, replace ribbon. Generally speaking, step one if your not sure how to change the ribbon take a picture before you thing , this will give you a chance to get it back together. New ribbon install/ 1. Look at the ribbon, with the hood up,type, and watch to see which spool is paying and which spool is taking up. 2. With your finger turn the take up spool until the ribbon is all on one reel. 3. Note how the ribbon sits in a guide on both right and left spools ( take a picture) 4. The tuff part,the ribbon is laced thought the "hammer block" where the type-heads go to strike the ribbon. (Take a picture) either you lift and lower and lift to " unthread" the ribbon or the other way around, it's not rocket science just note every move you make take pictures. If you get stuck or need further info send back info and pictures and we will go from there. Tip, when typewriters where replaced buy computers many typewriter service company were in the beginning phases of the copier revolution. Many type techs began working on both, you may find help from a long establish local copier company. Good luck, Bret

My Remington Noiseless 1939 typewriter has ghosting on the letter keys. I have put on a new ribbon but this just shows up the ghosting of each letter more than ever. I notice when typing the carriage


Could also be that your paper is too fibrous of finish. I found this page because my typewriter was ghosting, too. I adjusted some of the settings and there was not a trace of ghosting. I put the settings back and still no trace of ghosting. Then I realized that I tested for ghosting on paper that has a much smoother finish. I was ghosting on cheap paper we use here at work. So, I don't blame the typewriter. I blame the cheap paper. My typewriter just likes good paper.

Please can you send me a picture of how to install the ribbon in to the Remington Standard No.12 typewriter. Or tell me how to thread the ribbon.


Hi, first of all there is no picture diagram for this and this method am giving you is what has been used to install ribbon on different typewriters.
  • Remove the existing ribbon. Note the path that the ribbon takes as it goes from one spool to the other.
  • Roll the ribbon entirely on to one of the two reels if your replacement ribbon didn't come with a take-up reel. If your new ribbon has a take-up reel, skip this step.
  • Attach the end of the new ribbon to the take-up reel if your new ribbon doesn't already have one. In most cases, there is a sharp arrow shaped piece on the reel. Use that arrow to penetrate the ribbon and make a few winds of ribbon around the take-up reel.
  • Slip the take-up reel on the take-up spindle on the right side of the typewriter. Align any tabs designed to turn the reel to move the ribbon during typing.
  • Feed the ribbon through the path you noted when removing the old ribbon and place the main ribbon on the spindle. Give the take-up reel a few turns to make sure the ribbon moves freely through the typewriter mechanism.

Typing half letters


If it was working befor you changed the ribbon check to be sure the ribbon's feet are engaged in the slots on the ribbon deck, that the blue latch is latched and there isn't a fold in the ribbon. If all of these are OK push down firmly on both ends of the platen.

The ribbon won't advance on my IBM Selectric III typewriter. It's a new ribbon and it's on the outside of the shock wire and the lever is closed.


When the lever closes does the driver move to the right and aganist the ribbon, they get gummed up and stay opened. If this is a generig ribbon the top of the ribbon cassette will sometimes get in the way. If the ribbon isn't lifting you may be in stencil .

Selectric II- changed the ribbon, new ribbon won't advance


The ribbon is probably not threaded to the lift of the white slacker finger just left of where it comes out of the cassette.

IBM Selectra III typewriter


There are two different ribbons for selectric III T/W's. One has the ribbon guides as part of the cassette the other the guides are part of the machine.
Be sure the ribbon and L/Oare installed properly and the ribbon is winding on the take up spool properly (counter clock wise) and if the guides are in the machine id to the left if thr white slacker finger just L. of the ribbon also be sure the L/O tape is behind the black seperation finger and the ribbon is in front of it (just to the rt. of the opening in the plastic card holder).
