Look for the switch that will Move from L/ST 2 to C/ST 2.
Left side.... but on the more vertical face of the typewriter, not where all the other controls are.

Lost our manual for our IBM Wheelwriter 6 Series II. We don't remember how to store information. Can you help us?

Press and hold down "Store" while you type the number you would like to store the information in ( 1 through 99).
The "Store" light will blink and then the printwheel will spin.
When the "Store" light comes on solid you may start typing.

To end the store operation simply press and release the Store key. The Store light will turn off and the printwheel will spin again.

To print the saved job press "Play" and the number you used.

(Note: there are batteries inside the ribbon area of the typewriter that should be replaced every year (AA batteries) If they are missing or dead, the stored jobs will dissappear when the typewriter is turned off.

A copy of the operator's guide can be found here:

My Canon QS310 electronic typewriter ribbon is always out-of-stock in our country. What other typewriter ribbons (brand/models) that are compatible with Canon QS310?

If you had posted what Country you are located in, I could have ran a search to locate someone local to you that has this product in stock. I am located in California. I could give you information on compatible ribbons which are available in my area, but they may not be available in yours and that would not solve your problem.

I would suggest that you stick with the ribbon that is made for your typewriter if at all possible? If you are unable to locate stock in your Country, try ordering the ribbons online instead.

The ribbons are available at Office Depot. They sell the product online and have your ribbon in stock. Here is a link to your ribbon on their website:

Here is a link to a website that sells both the generic and brand name ribbon for your typewriter:

I hope this helps? Good luck!

I bought an sx4000 typewriter on line and there was no manual. I wish to activate the 16 character display so I could track my

To toggle the Line by Line mode, press Alt + Operate (written above the key, on the key is Reloc and BS 1/2). There are three options that you can rotate through Off, Auto, and L/L. (Auto only displays the text for correcting for specific things - like a line that will be centered between the margins.)

Brother has the manual for this at their site: . The direct link to the manual is .

Re Olympia manual typewriter - the ribbon spool does not turn/rotate when the typewriter keys are punched. Result - ribbon wears out fast.

The ribbon advance on these machines is a rachet system, underneath the ribbon. one of 2 likely things.

1. typewriter has nor been serviced in a long time and rachet system is gunked up; or

2. detent spring has broken or popped off.

You may be able to spray some contact cleaner down in the ratchet system, or take it it in for a servicing.
If the spring is popped off, you can re-install it. You should be able to see where it goes. There will be an arm between 2 toothed gears, just flopping . It has been a looong time since I have worked on a manual typewriter!

Hope this helps

hello sonya, this may or may not work, but leave power switch on, open your top cover, unplug machine and let sit for about 10-15 minutes. plug back in, close cover and see if you can type. if it still doesn't work, you're most likely looking at a "hard" failure that can only be repaired by a tech.

hth and good luck,

I have a brother 4100 fax. how do I change the information on the fax transmission page? thank you

If your date and time are not set yet, press Menu, then 1, then 2 and enter the date and time, pressing Set after each entry. Enter time in 24-hour format so it will display AM or PM properly.

For other info at the top of your fax transmission page after date and time, such as your fax and phone numbers, and company name:
Press Menu, then 1, then 3 for Station ID info.
First put in your fax number and press Set.
Next put in your phone number and press Set.
Next press the buttons for your company name and press Set.
Press Stop/Exit to return to the date and time display.

Here is info on inputting text, from the manual:
Entering Text
When you are setting certain functions, such as the Station ID, you may need to type text into the machine. Most keys on the dial pad have three or four letters rinted above them. The keys for 0, # and don’t have printed letters because they are used for special characters.
By pressing the appropriate number key repeatedly you can access the character you want.
Inserting Spaces
If you want to enter a blank space, press once between numbers and twice between characters.
Making Corrections
If you entered a letter incorrectly and want to change it, press to move the cursor after the last correct letter. Then press Clear; all letters above and to the right of the cursor will be deleted. Re-enter the correct characters. Also, you can back up and type over incorrect letters.
Repeating Letters
If you need to enter a character that is assigned to the same key as the previous character, press to move the cursor to the right.
Special Characters and Symbols
Key - once - twice - three times - four times - five times
2 - A - B - C - 2 - A
3 - D - E - F- 3 - D
4 G H I 4 G
5 J K L 5 J
6 M N O 6 M
7 P Q R S 7
8 T U V 8 T
9 W X Y Z 9
Press for (space) ! “ # $ % & ’ ( ) + , - . /

When typing, a letter is hit but a number is being printed. Typewriter is a Brother CE-500 model. We think you need to use the "Code"function but the manual has been missing for some time

Turn typewriter off, hold down CODE, turn machine back on.

Make sure you are not set for PROPORTIONAL SPACING.

Remove print wheel, turn machine off, reinstall print wheel, turn back on.

Unfortunately, they are a thing of the past, the only place you can try is a specialty repair shop that has been around for a long time.
