Question about Smith Corona Office Equipment & Supplies

Open Question

I have a Smith Corona electronic typewriter. I got it a year ago and the keys worked, except the characters wouldn't show up. I replaced the ribbon, but now the keys won't work at all. What's wrong?

The carriage also won't go back automatically when it reaches the end. It worked before when I got it.

SOURCE: Hi,

Is the ribbon selector lever located on the right side of the keyboard switched to either red or black? If it's on white, the ribbon doesn't come up.

SOURCE: My Smith corona typewriter types the wrong characters.

Check to see if you are in KBII or a language mode if not look for bent or broken spokes on the printwheel.

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
