We have put this concise guide book together from our experience in diagnosing and fixing most of the problems we come across, most are easy, all of them are fixable.

Some of the problems we talk about in this book:

If your carriage is loose and there is a piece of string flapping about underneath it.

If the upper and lowercase letters aren't aligned

Turning the letters inside glass keys the right way round

If the ribbon is faint even though it is not old

If your typewriter only types the tops/bottoms of the letters...

And much more.
