When I type nothing appears on the page. Everything was fine one minute and the next nothing. I changed the ribbon, but I still can't get the letters to appear. Thank you for any help you can give...

The plastic print solenoid cap is probably broken. We sell them for 20.00 includes shipping and instructions.

Have a Selectric III. The black "U" shaped or "wishbone" plastic that guides the ribbon next to the platen has come loose. Can't figure out where it attaches or where the tension points are to hold it in...

Because it is a selectric III it can use 2 different ribbons. one the ribbon guides are part of the cassette the other the ribbon guiges are part of the typewroter. If it isthe first just replace the ribbon if it is the other you will probably need the lifter arm assembly.

correction tapes will not work with multistrike ribbons. You have to use a correctable ribbon. If you can find a white out tape, it will work with multistrike. What model typewroter do you have?

No Characters Typing

could be the ribbon is not lifting, do you see an image on the ribbon, also may be twisted inside the cartridge the shiny side has to be facing the keyboard.

Not typing correct letters

Send it back for repairs if under warranty. This is not an office machine it is designed for very light home use.
