My Smith Corona CXL 4000 typewriter is not registering the correct keys, I believe it has something to do with "code" button located in the lower left-hand corner of the device. I no longer have the original manual to re-set the keys, making the typewriter useless to me. Is there a way to get those codes for free? Why are the keys disoriented? How can I re-set the typewriter so that all the buttons work properly, and so that when a push the letter "a" that that indeed is the letter that is copied?

SOURCE: Smith Corona Typewriter SL460:

The Lock button might be stuck. If someone was typing too fast, I believe it can "Overload". You may have to dis-assemble to see if button is stuck. I worked on one of these a while back.

SOURCE: can't replace daisy wheel on Smith Corona 100 typewriter

There should be a silver tab like button you can push down to change the position of the carrier; but my problem is getting the plastic piece to fit back in there correctly after I took it out. Tried to operate without it and it will not work.

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.

Hold down code and press the correction button to switch from word correct to character correct and back. Note to correct one character only you can simply use the backspace key.
