There were two types of correction tape used on these machines. I believe your's uses the two spools. Before you do anything, look at the old ones on your machine and follow along with how it was installed. The full one will go on the left, and the empty on the right. It will feed through a couple of metal prongs I believe. There then is usually a red lever under the spool on the left. click it several times and it will tighten it. (especially true of the cartridge type).

The linespace selector lever is probably at zero 0
try moving it to 1 1 1/2 or 2. There is also a detent lever that releases the ratchet of the roller. You should feel a bumping when you move the roller wheel.

Did you buy an OEM or COMPATIBLE ribbon? If you bought a compatible, please make sure you have bought the correct design for your typewriter. Some compatible ribbons come with a lug that prevents them from sitting correctly.
I note that you posted this problem over a month ago. If you haven't solved the problem by now, i would advise you to contact www.inkribbonpaper.co.uk. I have used them a number of times with great success for our smith corona, brother and royal typewriters
