Is the striking hammer moving when you hit any key? If it isn't then you have the same problem as I do.... and when I figure that one out, I'll let you know. I suspect the hammer solenoid, or the electronics that drive the solenoid are fried. I haven't opened the machine up yet but it could be a loose connector... but I know have much hope for that being the problem
Manuals are available (scanned) on the Lexmark website under the Publications button on the left hand side of the homepage. At the bottom of the Publications page is a pull down menu for IBM typewriters. Find your model on the pull down menu and it will bring up a PDF of the scanned copy. Sure beats buying one!
First things first:
1) See if something is missing /part or something is broke on your unit.
2) See if some part when you put the paper is forcing in the wheels or a wheel is broke. to take out the paper.
3) replace if you can the system.
Check the way the correct tape is installed. I have seen people twist them around the guide backwards and the correction material is facing away from the paper. Also can you see the correction tape lifting up?
