Is there an auto correction feature


The key to the right of the spacebar with the "X" printed on it is the correction button. You just place the carrier on the character to the right of the wrong one and hit the corr. button. The carrier should automatically back up and and remove the incorrect character and if you hold the key down it will continue to back up and remove characters. then you just type in the right one(s). Of course you have to have good "correctable" ribbon and correction tape cartridges installed. If the tapes are old you may have to advance them by typing and correcting or by manually advancing them before they will work. If the correction doesn't remove all the ink from the paper you may have a bad ribbon and/or correction tape.

The correction tape will not erase properly


If the tape is moving and showing marks of correction attempts you probably have old supplies or a non correctable ribbon. Install a fresh ribbon & L/O cassette NOT AN OLD ONE FROM THE BACK ROOM.

Typewriter won't erase letters completely.


Correction tapes do have a shelf life and can dry out. You should try replacing the correction tape and see if it is better. If that does not fix it, does the tape lift up high enough to cover the entire letter? If not, you have a lifting problem and will need a tech to fix it.

Here is a link for the correction tape you need from staples. It simply snaps under the print ribbon you already purchased

Correction tape on wheelwriter 3


The correction cassette snaps on the bottom of the ribbon. The two little "feet" on the cassette slide over the small tabs on the ribbon and the ribbon clips on.

Hope this helps

Wheelwriter 3500 only printing top half of letters


Sounds like the platen is not fully seated in the side frames, align the black latches with the frames and press firmly on both sides of the platen. the latches do occasionally crack in witch case you may need a platen replacement.
