Question about Smith Corona Office Equipment & Supplies
Typewriter is not printing dark enough. Is there some way to make it print darker? It has been in storage for years and I replaced the ink catridges but you have to type the letters several times to get it dark enough to see.
Many SCM typewriters have an impression control knob on them. Look for a knob on either the right or left side of the the keyboard with numbers from 1 to 10. The higher the number reading the darker it is supposed to print. Be careful not to go so high that the typeface cut holes in the paper. If this doesn't help, try putting a drop or two of sewing machine oil (or Triflow Oil) on your finger and rubbing it across the typebar segment (the slotted and curved metal piece that the typebars pivot in). Since the typewriter sat a while the segment may be sticky. Hope this helps.
