If the ribbon is just moving a little you may be in the overstrike ribbon mode try code period, comma or slash I can never remember which to get out of the mode if that dosen't do it try a new ribbon.

You may be in the overstrike ribbon. Try CODE period, comma or slash. (I can't ever remember which) to get out of it.

Ribbon will not advance


mark the ribbon where it turns, where there is a pin of the typewriter passing through the ribbon,mark it with a white marker.
and type something, if it doesnt turn, you know the machine has a problem.
or try everytime pressing on the ribbon, if it works you know the ribbon is coming up, check if the correction ribbon is placed good.behind the correctable ribbon.

Ribbon will not move when typing


If this is a wheelwriter remove the ribbon, mark the driver on the ribbon deck with some white out, type and see if it moves.
If it moves try a new ribbon, if it dosen't move put some WD40 on the upper and lower motor bearings if that dosen't help you probably need a motor or a board.

Ribbon does not move during typing and no ink gets on paper.


Hi:

It appears that the ribbon feed connector has come loose from the ribbon feed motor. On top where the ribbon sits you will see where the ribbon couples to the ribbon feed motor on the right side. Look on the bottom of the ribbon and you will see where the ribbon couples with the ribbon deck feed motor. Directly under that ribbon deck is the ribbon feed motor. It sound like the cable came loose and it just needs to be plugged back into to motor.


Good Luck

The ribbon is not moving for each new letter being typed. Its very slow so when you are typing a word it just keeps going over the same spot on the ribbon.


I'll try thisagain use the code key with one of these 3 keys ,.
. , or / this will take you out of the uverstrike ribbon mode.

Brother CE-70 typewriter. Was typing perfectly well. Over about 15 characters the impact on the print head reduced to nil. Although printhead appears to strike the daisy wheel the character does not strike...


Make sure that the ribbon is moving. If characters are piling up in the same spot on the ribbon you will get this problem. Easiest fix is to replace the ribbon. Many brand new ribbons can have a problem. If this dosent solve the problem it may be a mechanical problem with the mechanism that drives the ribbon, requiring a technician to repair.

First off make sure the ribbon turns freely.Take off the ribbon and turn the ribbon wheel in the direction of the arrow and see if it turns smoothly. If it turns smoothly the ribbon motor is not moving or the gear is not moving. take off the ribbon and type. See if the black ribbon drive gear on the ribbon deck moves as you type. If not the motor is N.G. or the ribbon gear clutch spring is not grabbing the gear to turn it. Lawrence

Make sure the ribbon cartridge lever is closed and that the ribbon is on the outside of the shock wire (where the ribbon exits the left side of the cartridge)
