Question about Lexmark Wheelwriter 15 Series II Typewriter
I recently changed both the correction tape and typing ribbon cartridge on my Selectric II and now have a problem. The correction tape wants to feed onto the take up spool as I type instead of feeding only when making a correction. This totally wastes the ribbon as it completely feeds onto the take up reel very quickly as I type. I have taken both the new tape and ribbon out and reinstalled 3 times but the tape is still doing it. Any suggestions?
Take off the ribbon, just inside the rt. side frame of the printer is the mech. for L/O feeding. There is an arm that moves back and allows the feed to ****, that mech. is probably gummy, lube with some WD40 on both sides of the printer (the left side sets up correction lifting.
