Question about Smith Corona Office Equipment & Supplies
Most likely bad printwheel, spokes may be catching on the ribbon and not going to home position. Try a new wheel, and or make sure carrier is returning to home position every time. make with white out the top of the print wheel spoke at home position and make sure it always comes back to that spot when you turn machine on and off and on. This will tell you if the machine is starting in the same place every time.

I agree with JUSTOLDJIM. I recently found a 3L near the dumpster at my townhome. I took it in a looked at it. There is a black and white ribbon used for typing and erasure of ink.

SOURCE: Need owners manual:
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.
YES, SMITH CORONA DOES STILL EXIST!
Best of luck to you! :-)
