Try these two sites for the manual. The typewriter you are using is very old school, so tracking manuals for them is ab it hard.

SOURCE: typewriter types the wrong letters,

If this is a Nakajima the pitch selector is in PS. If it is a brother the homing pawl is probably broken you need a tech.

To print from your machine
1. If you are printing from battery power insure the batteries are good and installed correctly, or use the AC adaptor.
2. If using the AC adaptor insure that the adaptor is plugged into a working AC outlet, or use a good set of batteries installed correctly.
3. Insure the ribbon cassette is installed correctly
4. Insure that the ribbon cassette has not run out. If all the ribbon is on the left take up reel then replace the ribbon
If there are still no characters on the paper your machine may need to be serviced

Canon typestar 110


I just got a typestar on ebay, new-still in box. I'd be happy to scan the manual and email it to you if you still need one. This is a pretty old post. But it appears the ribbons have been discontinued. I'm pretty sad, I wanted to actually use this machine lol.

Laptop won't turn on


The blinking orange battery light generally indicates that the battery isn't working properly, usually going out and not charging properly. In this case, since the adapter will not power the machine without the battery, and it should, I'm going to say that the adapter is going out and not getting the proper amount of power to the system. Try replacing the adapter. Be sure to replace it with a Dell replacement, the Targus brand universal adapters do not work well with Dell machines, and in most cases won't work at all.

Swintek Electronic Office Typwriter Problem


You didn't say what the model is. First be sure the print wheel is properly installed, then turn off the T/W and see if the carrier will move back and forth easily, if not try a little light oil on the shaft that runs thru the carrier (WD40 works well).
