The plastic cap on the print solenoid is probably broken.
They are available for 15.00 from us including shipping, a little tricky to install.

Why won't correction tape advance? Works for a few words then gets stuck.


There are 2 types of correction tapes, a sticky type and a non sticky type. The sticky type is for the IBM selectric series. If you have print wheel, you need the non sticky type. Touch the tape and see if it sticks to your finger, if it does, you have the wrong tape.

My typewriter turns on fine, but when I go to type, nothing comes out. The ink cartridge is new, but still does not type.


Be sure the print wheel is properly installed and latched in place. Type on a milti part form if the carbons are good yoy have a ribbon problem.

Faint printing on checks


To my knowledge the 999 ribbon is the best avaivable. Try these things. put a little light (WD40 works well) oil on the back side of the print solenoid, then perss code and "Q" the display will show 1,2 or 3 set it at 3 and then try code "B" for bold print. These should help.

Will not print


the comon reason a wheelwriter will not print is because of a broken milling selnoid cap on the print senolid. Check and see if the print hammer is jiggleing a little when you print-if so all you need is the cap. John Cazier
