I put in a new wheel and new ribbon with correction tape; was working fine but all of a sudden, it won't print correctly. It prints on the very top edge of the ribbon and the letters do not print correctly.

On the older WW's there is a large black plastic gear on the R. side of the printer they do get tooth for tooth. try wiggling it to free it up, with the power off it should move easily.

How to install correctronic ribbon


Open top cover, small correction tape orange or yellow lift off is kind of tricky, left side goes on small spool holder feeding off the top and going around front of print wheel. by the way relaase the printwheel so it pivots back toward you, eaiser to see, correct tape goes in front of wheel and pivots very similar to left side. Correction tape has good side and bad side good side a matte finish should face away from you, this is the correction. Regular riboon just lifts up reom the front and snaps back in place. two little plastic tabs on back of ribbon case fits in two little holes in carrier. Hop this helps real hard to describe.just works...

When I type it is printing different letters than I am typing.


On most models there is a pitch switch 10.12.15.PS

you need to match the switch to what print wheel is in the typewriter. most common wheels are 10 or 12
move the switch to that area.

if that is not the problem take out the ribbon, corr. tape & print wheel. tuen on the typ. let it home, put the print wheel & ribbon ( Not the corr. tape) turn on let it home tray typing. if works O.K. put in the corr. tape .
Then you are good to go.

Smith Corona PWP90 corrector cartridge problem


sounds like the corr tape doesn't have the proper tension on it. turn wheel on corr tape cartridge, or if there isn't a wheel, some don't, there is a little lever to the left and under the left side where the cart. fits down. push this until the arm on the right side moves to the left

Typewriter suddenly will not print!


It's been awhile since I've worked on these.

What is the typing mechanism in here? I believe Brother was using a wheel.

Printing issues


There are a few things that can cause this. Try code Q if this helps you may have a gummy print soleniod, if it dosen't the cap on the solinoid plunger may be cracked or the platen might not be fully seated ib the frames.
