Correction function not working

Hi, i typed a wrong letter and press the correction button. the typewriter went back to correct the letter but the letter is still clearly there. when i looked at the correction tape, the incorrect letter was etched onto the correction tape. I looked at the manual and installed it the way it asked me to but i still get the same results. Please advise. Thank you.

I've found that if I don't use the machine for a few weeks the correction tape that is exposed to the air becomes ineffective. I make a bunch of corrections in a row until fresh tape comes off the roll and the correcting function starts to work again.

Is there an auto correction feature

The key to the right of the spacebar with the "X" printed on it is the correction button. You just place the carrier on the character to the right of the wrong one and hit the corr. button. The carrier should automatically back up and and remove the incorrect character and if you hold the key down it will continue to back up and remove characters. then you just type in the right one(s). Of course you have to have good "correctable" ribbon and correction tape cartridges installed. If the tapes are old you may have to advance them by typing and correcting or by manually advancing them before they will work. If the correction doesn't remove all the ink from the paper you may have a bad ribbon and/or correction tape.

Warning sound, didn't move

Check to be sure the correction tape isn't tangled in the print wheel. If it is or was check the wheel to be sure it isn't damaged,
Then try it without the correction tape.

Not typing correct letters

Send it back for repairs if under warranty. This is not an office machine it is designed for very light home use.
