    There are no knobs on the ends of the platen, & I still have the problem. Please suggest something else.

The paper release lever may be in the release mode. try holding the left platen knob and pulling lightly on the paper is should not allow the paper to move freely, if it is ok try holding the left knob and turning the right knob in the direction you would to turn the paper in it may have come loose if so turn it all the way back in do not over tighten it your machine does not click when the platen is turned it uses electronics to hold the platen on line.

Paper Bail Load lever advances paper all the way out of machine. How do I change this? dianna


With the machine on pull the paper bail forward, let it run until it quits, then use the paper down button and run the paper back 20 lines or so, hold the code button and pull the paper insert forward. That re-sets the stopping place, keep doing this until you get the paper insert to stop where you want it.

How do I cancel the RePrt option?


The reprint stores info. as you type to clear it pull the R. Upper roll arm to engage paper feed, the first keystroke will start the reprint over. You can also turn it off and on.

How to delete memory on RePrt


If you pull the R. upper bail arm to activate the auto paper insertion will clear the reprint, turning it off will also do it. There is no way to stop it from storing data as that memory is also used for correction.

Typewriter is working fine but won't type anything on the paper - new ribbon / new printwheel - no impression. Appears to be stuck on a


Try typing on a mulipart form. If it types on the copies and not the orinonal the ribbon is the problem. If it dosen't type on the copies then the plastic cap on the print solenoid is broken.

We sell the cap with installation instructions for 20.00 includes shipping.

The platen does not turn to advance the paper to the next line when typing so each line is just typing over the next.


Remove the platen by squeexing the black plastic retainers at both ends of the platen and lifting it out. Look for debris under the platen, press paper up key and see if the gear on the left end is moving, if it is the gear on the platen may be broken (new platen) or if someone has been in here check to be sure the paper tray is properly installed (rounded edge to the rear).

Writer beeps w/keystroke and does not type.


You are probably in a format mode that was set up for 12 piych printwheel. Install a 12 pitch pwintwheel or exit the format mode.

PAPER FEED


You probably have a keyboard problem. With the T/W turned on tap the space up key and the micro up & down keys if they space without pressing them you may need a keyboard. If you find the offending key try popping off the key top this may get you by for a while.
