Question about IBM Typewriters
I have a a IBM Selectric and I deactived my correction key...Please help me fix it
Take the top cover off the tw. Unlock the whole tw from the bottom case. Slide the tw forward and lift up and set on the rear side. On the bottom front of the unit, there is a bunch of leaf springs that push on the keys to keep them up. One of the leaf springs are gonna be off. Simply pull the leaf spring up and onto the key that does not have one on.
This will fix your problem

There is no way to deactivate the correction key. there must be another problem like no correction tape or simply not lifting the tape
