Get yourself a new ribbon Gen. Ribbon T-340 and a lift off Gen. Ribbon T-350 the lift off snaps onto the bottom of the ribbon and then both go on the typewriter there are two small tabs onthe ribbon cassette that go into notches on the front of the ribbon deck then the unit snaps down in the back held by the blue latch.

I have replaced the ribbon cartridge and for some reason the entire cartridge will not sit back down in place. In other words, the letter wheel strikes the "erase" cartridge. I have tried and...


When the T/W is turned on does the ribbon go up and down or does it just stay in one place? Try it without the correction tape attached if it works then the correction tape is installed wrong. If it doesn't check the plug on the ribbon motor and give it a shot of WD40 on the upper and lower bearings (it is located under the ribbon deck at thr R. front.

Older IBM Wheelwriter 1500 typewriter won't print


First put in a milti part form or a carbon, type, if it prints in the copy your ribbon isn't lifting, if this is the problem put some WD40 ON THE UPPER AND LOWER RIBBON MOTOR, IT IS just below the ribbon deck on the right. If there is no print the print solenoid cap is probably broken.

We sell the cap for 20.00 includes instructions and shipping.

Correction tape


Does the correction tape move? Does it lift up to the proper height? If it does both of these try advancing it a few inches the tapes get old and the exposed portion won't work. If this helps but it isn't real good get a fresh (not one that has been sitting on the shelf for years and thes will help.

Correction tape not working


The ribbons and lift off tapes both get old and change composition, get a fresh ribbon and L/O tape then try it.

IBM Easystrike Cartridges


The ribbon cartridges can be pried apart they are pressed together, getting it apart is easier than putting back together.
Next time you have to install a ribbon advance it by hand for a foot or so as old ribbons tend to stick to themselves.

Hope this helps
