The solinoid that drives the print hammer has a plastic cap on it and it is probably broken.
The part is available 10.00 - 15.00

Standard manual corona typewriter: spacebar not working


There is an escapement type mechanism in the back of the typewriter, chances are, the escapement mechanism is out of movement or misaligned. Check the spacebar if something is caught underneath or over one of the linkages.

I can't type on a document that was emailed to me.


It sounds as though a Microsoft document was sent to you over the internet, e.g;via email attachment. If so, save a copy of the document to your pc & then edit that one instead of editing the one sent to you over the internet. If that doesn'twork, close the file, right-click on the it and go to "Properties" - uncheck all "Read only" boxes, click Apply & try again.
If that still doesn't work, perhaps it is password protected, which means that you need the password from the person who sent it to you such that you can unlock it and place it into an "editable state".

Error 1603


Try these 2 solutions: 1) Click Start > Run 2) Type msiexec /unreg and press enter and wait until it appears to have finished. 3) Go back to Start > Run 4) Type msiexec /regserver and press enter. 5) Try to install MSN Messenger again. Good luck! If this doesn't work, try: go tho this path from my computer C:\documents and settings\all users\application data\microsoft\ Then select the folder "IdentityCRL" remove the folder. Since the error is occuring due to "ppcrlconfig.dll" directory correction. Then run the setup and this time it will be able to install. Good luck

Some key on the keyboard are typing numbers instead of letters what should i do please?


Hi,

You might have accidentally activated the "Numlock" key on your keyboard. Just press the Numlock and it should type in letters instead of numbers.

If press just the Numlock key will not work, try the combination which is CTRL and Numlock simultaneously.

Hope this helps.

Lexmark printer X5150 is printing color images but not typed font? Just installed new b/w cartridge...the color test works fine but can't get a letter to print out...page comes out blank


Try to see how you can restore the settings to default. There may be a setting to don't print text somewhere that got marked accidentally. Check your document type in the settings, it may be set to "picture" instead of mixed type document (I don't know what the setting is called, just that it's there) Also press the stop / clear button after printing an image to return to default settings

Everything works except for spacebar & key advance


The T/W is probably just gummy. Will it tab? If so the correction mech. is probably the trouble, if not try some WD40 on the silver shaft that the s

How to change the pitch?


Here ya go...

Margins and Tabs
Margins and tabs for both Type Mode and Mem Mode are set in Type
Mode, but can be changed in Mem Mode when text is recalled for
editing. Margins and tabs are set using the typing scale which appears
on the display in Type Mode. A blinking cursor indicates the typing
position. The letter “L” indicates your left margin setting. The letter “R”
indicates your right margin setting.
NOTE: In Mem Mode, the margins and tabs used when the text
is created will be saved with the text and recalled with it,
even if they have been changed.
Margins
In Type Mode, to signal that you are near the right margin, the
typewriter will beep 5 spaces before the margin. In Mem Mode, the text
will wrap automatically when you print.
Margins are preset depending on the pitch setting, which is the number
of characters per inch. They are:
10 Pitch 12 Pitch 15 Pitch
(Pica) (Elite) (Micro)
Left Margin 12 14 18
Right Margin 72 86 108
New margin settings remain until changed again.
1. Move the Mode Selector to Type. A typing scale appears on
the display.
2. Move the cursor using the Spacebar or Back Space to the desired left
margin setting on the scale.
3. Press Margin.
4. Move the cursor using the Spacebar to the desired right margin
setting on the typing scale.
5. Press Code + Margin. A beep confirms each new margin setting.
6. You can change to Mem Mode, if desired.

Take care,
