I have a new lift off correction spool for a 2640 Swintec, but it doesn't correct? It seems to be working correctly, but doesn't lift off the type.

How to replace correction tape?


From the looks the typewriter is not electric but electrononic. Wind it the same way the old lift off tape was guided. The full spool on the left hand side around the guides in the front of the printwheel to the right side with the empty spool. Simple.

Swintec 2640 Typing wrong characters


On the L. of the keyboard there is a slide switch for pitch it should be in 10, 12 or 15 not in PS. If it isn't in PS push down on it and slide it up and down a few times and leave it in 10 or 12.

The lift-off tape is to low


1. Use the SPACEBAR or BACKSPACE to move the carrier to the center of the typewriter, then turn off the typewriter and unplug the unit from the AC outlet.
2. Open the Top Cover and remove the cassette ribbon, if installed.
3. Pull off both spools by holding the correction tape taut between the spools; bring the correction tape to a position parallel with the platen and lift up and out.

4. Pass the new tape through left guide, behind the ribbon guide and out through the right guide. The rough (sticky) side of the tape should face the platen.

5. Attach the feeder spool to the pin on the left.

6. Attach the take up spool to the pin on the right. Turn the take up spool counter-clockwise until a small amount of white tape has wound around it.

7. Replace the cassette ribbon and close the top cover, plug in the AC cord to the AC outlet, and turn on the typewriter.

Memory on Swintec 7040 is irratic. Copy is correct but tabs move around.


Spray a little WD40 on the silver shaft that the carrier slides on.

As soon as I turn our Swintec 2640 on it starts beeping very rapidly.


Be sure the printwheel doesn't have any bent or broken spakes. Try it without the bribbon and correction tape to see if they are hitting the P/W.

Install the empty spool on that hub thread the L/O thru the guides with dull side facing the paper and then the full on the supply hub. there may be two or more guides depending on the printer.

Hope this helps
