You probably have an IBM Wheelwriter. Press down firmly on both ends of the platen (black roll) it should snap into place.

Type on a two part form if the carbons are goog then you have a ribbon problem. Look at the ribbon. Do the letters overlap (ribbon feed) If they don't fall in a line near the center of the ribbon (ribbon lift) Check for folds in the ribbon.

Faint printing on checks


To my knowledge the 999 ribbon is the best avaivable. Try these things. put a little light (WD40 works well) oil on the back side of the print solenoid, then perss code and "Q" the display will show 1,2 or 3 set it at 3 and then try code "B" for bold print. These should help.

Look at the ribbon and see if the letters are on the very top of th ribbon. If so on the front of the carrier there is an eccentric screw for adj. ribbon height. Loosen the lock nut W/ a small 9/32 wrench and adj screw to raise ribbon. Be sure to check L/O with the underscore as you can get it to high.

IBM Easystrike Cartridges


The ribbon cartridges can be pried apart they are pressed together, getting it apart is easier than putting back together.
Next time you have to install a ribbon advance it by hand for a foot or so as old ribbons tend to stick to themselves.

Hope this helps
