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.

How do you put the font wheel back in to match up with the keys in a Smith Corona typewriter?


When you put it in, make sure the charachters on the "printwheel"are facing AWAY from you. (towards the paper.) And make sure it is latched in place. Put the ribbon and correction tape back in properly. Turn the machine on. The printwheel should automatically reset itself. If it doesn't, it need professional help

Silver sterling manual smith corona ribbon keeps falling off


you may have place the ribbon spools so they are unwinding instead of winding up the ribbon. The left spool turns counterclockwise and the right spool turns clockwise. Make sure the ribbon winds onto the spools when turned in those directions.

Smith Corona PWP 4002 fails to type,. need to know if ribbon is correctly installed as well as circular disk. Thanks


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
