Question about Swintec 7040 Typewriter
Check that each part of the typewriter is in place and functioning properly.
Check the ribbon and make sure that it is firmly in place, that it rolls smoothly and advances properly. Make sure the scroll wheel advances up and down without hesitation.
Look at all the internal parts to make sure they're not loose or crooked. If they are, adjust them to their proper settings. Check all parts for cleanliness and clean any necessary residue from ink, dust, or other substances that might make parts jam.
Identify the part of the typewriter causing the problem like the ribbon, keys, roller, or the daisy wheel. Check all of the settings on the typewriter to be sure they are correct, such as margins, spacing and function keys.
Verify that your parts are all made to work with the model of typewriter you are using. If you are unsure if a part, such as the ribbon, is compatible, check the manufacturer's website. They will often provide comprehensive lists of items made to work with their products, and often will tell you where you can purchase them if not directly from the company itself.
Replace any necessary products, such as the ink ribbon or correction ribbon. It may not be noticeable to the naked eye, but if either ribbon will not advance any further, it has been used up. Replace the ribbon(s) in the correct position with the correct models.

Tips for a great answer:
There are two things that people mess up when changing printwheels and ribbons. Is that the ribbon is not in the guides properly. The other is that the latch the holds the type wheel is not locked in the forward position.
