The linespace selector lever is probably at zero 0
try moving it to 1 1 1/2 or 2. There is also a detent lever that releases the ratchet of the roller. You should feel a bumping when you move the roller wheel.

Smith corona SL480 instruction manual. I just need a manual so I know how to use the features built into the typewriter


How to Use a Smith Corona Typewriter A Smith Corona typewriter can be either a manual or electric model. Whichever model you have, the typewriter works in basically the same way. If you are familiar with a computer keyboard, you can type on a typewriter as the keys are laid out exactly the same. Unlike a computer, typing mistakes are harder to correct and, unless you use carbon paper, you will only have one copy of any document you type.

Backspace key stopped working


SCM's have a problem with dirt getting on the keyboard contacts.
Take the T/W apart remove the metal bottom of the ketboard, wipe off the velum and key contacts with alcohol.
