My Smith Corona PWP 55D is striking in the middle of the correct letter on the wheel and the next letter.

Question edited for clarity and spelling 'weel' > wheel. You can try another font wheel, but it is likely to be the same. From a distant memory of using Daisy Wheel Printers, isn't there a setting you have to change depending on the pitch (size) of the font and wheel you are using? If not is likely needs cleaning, servicing and lubricating. https://www.google.com/search?q=Smith+Corona+PWP+55D ..

How do you change the font (to Elite) on a Smith Corona 2200 Chronamatic electric?

The only machines you can change font is those with a Daisy Wheel or a Golf Ball.

Smith corona DeVille 650

Take the ribbon off and see if the driven spool turns? It is does, replace the ribbon with a new one. If it doesn't you need service.

Smith Corona XL 1500. How do I insert ink ribbon? The spokes in typewriter appear too wide for cassette??

There is some help here and a manual to purchase for $8.95. You realise the keys only strike one at a time, dead centre of the cassette? They don't need much room. https://www.google.com/search?q=smith+corona+xl+1500+manual There appears to be three types of ribbon cassette!! https://www.google.com/search?q=smith+corona+xl+1500+ribbon ..

I have a Smith Corona the office memory 2000 typewriter.

With these machines, there is a setting to put the typing into memory. Then you read it, edit it and then you press a button to tell it to print. Then there is the setting to type as normal. https://www.google.com/search?q=smith+corona+the+office+2000+memory+typewriter+manual ..

Smith Corona XD 5500 Cord replacement a problem?

The images that show the power cord show it to be a fairly substantial chunk of wire. A fuse only blows though if something shorts but I guess if the resistance gets too much. https://www.google.com/search?q=Smith+Corona+XD5500+power+cord ..

Got a used Smith Corona SL470 portable electronic typewriter.

Question edited for clarity, make and model (what it is). Question moved to Smith Corona. You have a stuck key, the one that is typing the same letter! It probably needs a good service as no one has used a portable typewriter for 30 - 35 years :>D https://www.google.com/search?q=SL470+stuck+key ..

Smith corona SE100 Typewriter, need the printer ribbon gear

Question edited for Clarity. Almost certainly nowhere. Sears advertises 'parts', but only the ribbon and says they are obsolete and no replacements. The computer and computer printer has killed the typewriter market. You might get a used one on eBay and strip it for spares. https://www.google.com/search?q=smith+corona+se100+spare+parts ..
