Re: Liftoff tape doesn't work properly
It could be the ribbon is not seated properly try removing it and reinstalling, or did you remove the tab from the ribbon cartridge top either orange or red coler and did yo wind the lift off tape into the takeup spool show the leader is no longer exposed?

If everything was working befor the ribbon & L/O change Either the L/o is not properly attached to the ribbon or the ribbon and or L/O are old. Make some corrections then remove and look at the L/o, if the letters are near the center of the L/O the problem is the ribbon or L/o is old, if the print is on the top of the tape it is not properly attached to the ribbon or not coming out or the cassette properly. If you have a fresh set or another T/W that works swap the ribbons and look at how they are attached.

Since it hasn't been used in quite a while the lubrication in the machine has become gummy & sticky. The cam that operates the backspace is being activated, but the arm that drives the backspace mechanism isn't being pulled on.
Machine needs a deep cleaning and oiling and then readjusting to correct this problem. (Don't spray WD-40 in it...makes it worse !)
(This repair is usually beyond what a non-technician can do.)
