It could be a blown fuse, some models had a fuse right above where the power cord plugs into the machine. If you are going to take it our make sure the cord is unpluged from the wall outlet.

I have a smith corona sd680 work processor typewriter. When I type the letter don't come out clear and I have to type over and over in order to read the letters. This is an old typewriter in the office...

This problem is usually caused by an old ribbon theey do dry out when left in tthe typewriter a long time, also if the paper is really hard or has a slick surface the ink from the ribbon will not stick to the paper.

Need owners manual: Smith Corona SL500 Model 5A, electric typewriter. Where can one find this? Are there any that can be down loaded? Does Smith Corona even exist anymore? Thanks,

I have been unable to find a site where you can download a Smith Corona typewriter manual. However, you can try going to Will Repair Service. They carry manuals of every Smith Corona typewriter ever made, and you should be able to find a manual for your particular typewriter there. I find them to be a very helpful and trustworthy typewriter shop.


Best of luck to you! :-)
