The plastic print solenoid is probably broken. We sell them for 20.00 includes instructions and shipping.

My typewriter won't type. The cartridge moves, but nothing prints


The ribbon may be broken or binding so that it cannot advance.

Hammer doesd not strike


There is a clutch system under the ribbon carrier that has to rotate to move the hammer, see if you can see if this part is rotating, also there is a spring that puts pressure on the hammer. If this clutch is not moving it may need replacement,, or cleaned with alcohol.

  1. Is the daisy wheel locked in the forward position?
    1. Pull the black lever back, away from the platen.
    2. Lift out the daisy wheel and inspect it for damage; replace the daisy wheel if it is damaged.
    3. Re-insert the daisy wheel and push the black lever towards the platen until it locks in place.
  2. Is the ribbon moving?
    1. Lift the ribbon cartridge out of the typewriter
    2. Inspect the ribbon for damage
    3. If the ribbon is silver, it is exhausted and must be replaced
    4. If the hammer has been striking in one place, there will be a clear area near the center of the ribbon.
    5. Turn the colored knob on the left side of the ribbon cartridge counter-clockwise to advance the ribbon a small amount. Replace the ribbon if it will not advance.
    6. Re-insert the ribbon
  3. Turn on the typewriter, insert a piece of paper into the typewriter and type a few letters
    1. Did the hammer move forward?
    2. If the hammer moved, did the ribbon advance with each keystroke?
If the hammer did not move or the ribbon did not advance, the typewriter will require service. If the typewriter still does not make an impression on the paper, your typewriter will require service.

The ribbon will not index forward on my 345 DLE. It appears that the shaft that inserts into the cassett does not turn to move the ribbon.


if the knob on the ribbon cartridge doesn't move the ribbon when you turn the knob the direction of the arrow (on the cartridge next to the knob) you need a new ribbon

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.

Is the hammer moving at all? There is a rubber part on the I think left side of the ribbon hammer, down on the side of the printer. This will adjust the amount of impact. I really doubt if
this is the problem, but worth a try to look at. This part and I think it is a blue slide will move up and down to adjust the impact. Possible lubrication and there is a large spring that actually pulls that hammer forward, check to see if this spring is OK. Other than that electronic problems such as main board, printer motors, etc. Does hammer move freely by hand? Also mechanical binding in the printer... GOOD LUCK.

If it is moving as the hammer is struck, then it's one of two things. Either the hammer is moving too slowly, or the ribbon is moving too quickly. Since this is a rather old machine, it seems more likely things would slow down than speed up. I'd check the hammer solenoid. See if it's dirty, or needs lubricated. I wish I could give you more advice on this, but I am not familiar with this specific model, and was unable to find any kind of service manual, or troubleshooting information for it.
