The print head might have accummulated a lot of paper bits you need to clear them with a needle or just submerge the tip in petrol or ether. Caution do not submerge if its made of plastic.

SOURCE: Black line is present when copying document; not

This sounds as if you have some ink/contamination on the small scaning glass that sits to either the left or right of the main glass on the copier.(Depending on the model/make)As your original is scanned over this thin piece of glass the scanning device will see any spots and this will result in a black line down the page.Please clean the glass with a soft rag.

How do i reset the wheel on a smith corona sl460 electronic typewriter? the correction ribbon keeps coming out of place

The typewriter has a spring at one spool to keep the correction ribbon taut. If that spring is broken or out of place, the ribbon will always get in the way of the wheel.
If both ribbons are correctly set tight between the wheel and the paper, the typewriter will reset the wheel at power-on.
Some models reset the wheel every time you close the cover. You can see and hear it if it does.
