I would recommend you purchase a new machine from a local office depot type store. For about $135 you can get a new Brother typewriter. I think that the Model above the cheapest one is the best value, considering the features and some internal design benefits.

Smith corona electra 110 Strike the key, won't work.


If it does nothing at all the pawls that engage the drive shaft may be gummy a little WD40 if it makes sounds like something is happening the connecting wire to the type bar is probably unhooked. You can swap it with a rarly used key and sometimes get away with it.

Smith corona SL480 instruction manual. I just need a manual so I know how to use the features built into the typewriter


How to Use a Smith Corona Typewriter A Smith Corona typewriter can be either a manual or electric model. Whichever model you have, the typewriter works in basically the same way. If you are familiar with a computer keyboard, you can type on a typewriter as the keys are laid out exactly the same. Unlike a computer, typing mistakes are harder to correct and, unless you use carbon paper, you will only have one copy of any document you type.

My typewriter, an Electra 120 smith-corona, is broken and I have no idea how to fix it or who to ask. The buttons stick and the paper wont move across. Help!


This is an old mechanical typewriter, rather than electronic. Thus, the sticky keys are gummed up and quite possibly the rails are gummy as well. Look in your phone book under typewriters. My company to this day has a full-time typewriter repair person, and there should be many such companies out there. Should cost about $75 to repair.

Need owners manual: Smith Corona SL500 Model 5A, electric typewriter. Where can one find this? Are there any that can be down loaded? Does Smith Corona even exist anymore? Thanks, kms_soykey@msn.com


I have been unable to find a site where you can download a Smith Corona typewriter manual. However, you can try going to Will Repair Service. They carry manuals of every Smith Corona typewriter ever made, and you should be able to find a manual for your particular typewriter there. I find them to be a very helpful and trustworthy typewriter shop.

YES, SMITH CORONA DOES STILL EXIST!

Best of luck to you! :-)

Smith corona xe6100 keys locked


there is a KB ON/KB OFF switch on the right side of the keyboard, it should be in the ON position
also on the left side the switch should be in the TYPE position
if that doesn't make it work, there is a problem with the main board or power supply that will need a visit to a repair shop

Smith Corona 235 DLE doesn't advance


Does the platen move or does the paper not advance? Check the paper release lever to make sure the feed wheels are snapped in place. If the platen does not move something in the paper feed motor area.
