Changing from word processing to manual typing

We have an Olivetti ET 2500 Typewriter/Word Processing unit here in the office. Would like to be able to use it as a plain old typewriter.... hit the key and the letters show up on the paper! Is this possible? Right now nothing goes to the paper until you hit enter. Have been unable to find anything in the owners manual.

I don't have a solution, but would be happy to get a copy of the manual as we have that same typewriter and don't have a manual. May be able to help once we look at manual.

How can I fix my electric typewriter Olivetti ET 2500 and make it type?

Hope u r lucky enough to have a typewriter repair shop close by. Both of mine were a real pain to fix and took parts not findable on the street. Expertise in this field is vanishing with shift in technology.

Where can I download the user manual for Olivetti ET 2450 MD typewriter ? Can I have a copy of the manual ?

Try searching the internet for:

Make + Model + the word "Manual"

Typewriters are pretty much a foregone appliance. Manuals may be scarce, if even available.

Try this. If it does not work, you can find it like this. Download and support is in upper right hand corner. Next page, open box to typewriter, and then second box to ML100. Next page should be the English Pdf. link.
