Daisy wheel will not stay on wordsmith 100


CHANGING Changing The Ribbon Cassette 1) Move the print carrier to the center of the platen using the SPACE or BS key. 2) Hold the ribbon cassette on both sides and lift up the front portion (where the ribbon is exposed) to remove the cassette. 3) To insert a new cassette, place the back end of the cassette on the cassette holder on the carrier and gently press down on the front of the cassette unit it clicks into place. 4) Turn the ribbon feed knob counter-clockwise again to take up any slack in the ribbon. 5) Presss the CODE + = (SETTING) key.

Changing The Print Wheel 1) Move the print carrier to the center of the platen using the SPACE or BS key. 2) You will see a lever on the right side of the carrier. Pull this lever toward you and lift out the daisy wheel. 3) Place the daisy wheel into the slot with the characters facing the platen. 4) Push the lever back into position. 5) Press the CODE + = (SETTING) key.
It appears as though you have something that is preventing the print wheel from being locked in place by the release lever. It should make a snapping or similar noise when it is locked down.

SMITH CORONA KA 13 WORD SMITH

For a manual, try Google. Just put in "Smith Corona KA 13 WORD SMITH MANUAL'. If you can't find one there, then you are prabably out of luck. To change the margin simply go to the left margin, use the "backspace" or spacebar to position the print head where you want the margin set and then push the L MAR key. To change the right margin use the same procedure and hit the R MAR key.

Electric typewriter is stuck in gear and will not move.I don't know how to make it move in any direction

don't know what you mean by "stuck in gear" is the printhead not moving? Printwheel? you turn it on and nothing happens? look in yellow pages or this site for repair shop under 'typewriters'. SOUNDS LIKE THATS WHAT YOU NEED

Smith Corona SL 460

Could be the printhead is at the right margin. But, if you hit the return key and nothing happins, it could be a bad board, power supply or transport motor. When you turn the machine on, does the printhead move all the way to the left, spin the printwheel and move to a set position?

Smith Corona XD 6500

You might check the outlet to make sure there is 120V. Otherwise there is a good chance the power supply has burned out. Also the cover has to be down, and there has to be a ribbon mounted properly for this machine to work.

Lock switch stays on

The light goes on to indicate that the shift lock is engaged, so all letter type in upper case (capital) letters, or on machines with "spell check" to indicate a mis-spelled word. It should go out when you hit eithor left or right shift keys, correct the mis-spelled word or just continue typing.
If it just stays on all the time no matter what you do, there is a problem with the main board.
