Why doesn't my new corrector ribbon/ink ribbon work? The wheel advances-nothing shows on paper.


Put in a multi-part form, type if the carbon is OK the problem is with the ribbon. Look at the ribbon if there is an impression on the ribbon but no ink transfer the ribbon is very ols, if there is no impression then the ribbon isn't lifting. THere ix a 2" black gear on the right side of the printer it should move easily if not wiggle it back and forth they get tooth for tooth with the drive gear.

Letters don't show on paper no imprint on ribbon. keys sound like they are typing but nothing shows on paper


Chances are that the print head is not locked forward. This happens when the daisy wheel or either of the ribbons are replaced. Just push it forward until it clicks

I have an IBM Personal Wheelwriter. New ribbon and type does show when typing. Any ideas?


IF UNIT SOUNDS LIKE IT IS TYPING BUT NOTHING SHOWS ON PAPER, THEN THE BUMPER PAD ON THE HAMMER SOLENOID HAS FALLEN APART AND NEEDS TO BE REPLACED. MOST TYPEWRITER REPAIR COMPANIES SHOULD HAVE THIS PART IN STOCK AND SHOULD BE ABLE TO REPLACE IT IN ABOUT 30 MINUTES.

Nothing shows on the paper when I type.


Remove and observe the ribbon, wind the feedwheel to see if the ribbon if moving at all. Make sure that the correction tape is not in front of the printheel and installed properly. (electronic machines use non-sticky lift-off tapes).. Observe the hammer movement. The ribbon winder in the cartrige could be defective, the ribbon ffeed mechanism in the machine may need repair/replacement. Make sure there is a printwheel in the machine.

With power off, remove the ribbon and look down inside the carriage assembly on the right hand side. Look close and you will see a white gear, you rotate that gear, either way about 1/2 a revolution. Power on and try typing, if it works you can put in the ribbon and go, if not, rotate the gear somr more.

You probably have a broken plastic cap on the print solenoid plunger, they are available but a little tricky to install.

Hammer doesn't strike


Try taking the wheel out and aliging it with the piece in the middle with a hole in it so that the pin and the wheel connect when you push the lever forward to connect the wheel to the disk.
