You could try the shift keys. On mine, I have two blank white keys at the bottom left. When I had a similar problem this helped. You also may have to check for rust, dirt, etc, which can cause keys to lock. It may just need a good cleaning and light greasing of key mechanisms. There are many great websites that show step by step instructions on cleaning and maintenance. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Need owners manual:

I have been unable to find a site where you can download a Smith Corona typewriter manual. However, you can try going to Will Repair Service. They carry manuals of every Smith Corona typewriter ever made, and you should be able to find a manual for your particular typewriter there. I find them to be a very helpful and trustworthy typewriter shop.

YES, SMITH CORONA DOES STILL EXIST!

Best of luck to you! :-)

Smith corona SL480 instruction manual. I just need a manual so I know how to use the features built into the typewriter


How to Use a Smith Corona Typewriter A Smith Corona typewriter can be either a manual or electric model. Whichever model you have, the typewriter works in basically the same way. If you are familiar with a computer keyboard, you can type on a typewriter as the keys are laid out exactly the same. Unlike a computer, typing mistakes are harder to correct and, unless you use carbon paper, you will only have one copy of any document you type.

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.

there is a KB ON/KB OFF switch on the right side of the keyboard, it should be in the ON position
also on the left side the switch should be in the TYPE position
if that doesn't make it work, there is a problem with the main board or power supply that will need a visit to a repair shop

My keys have locked. How do you unlock them?


If any of the keys are stuck in the down position, it will lock out the entire keyboard so that none of the keys will work.
One think you can try, is turn the typewriter upside down, and hit the bottom of the unit (right above the keyboard). See if there anything that falls out besided dust. Also hit ALL of the keys. Each and every one of them just to make sure non of them are stuck down.
Try this a couple of times, and see if it helps any.
Good luck.
