MOVING MAGNET

Post by pokipc » Wed Dec 17, 2008 4:19 pm

NO, not the cartridge, the magnets along the ribbons. I have one that moved and am looking for anyone who has had this problem, was able to fix it and can tell me how to go about it. There maybe a whole other problem. Only part of it has moved. Are they supposed to be a single solid line or, are they meant to be in sections? THANKS, MIKE

Welcome to the forum pokipc. DaveS or ToyMaker will chime in on this shortly as they are THE Carver Ribbon Repair guys, but I think that this might almost involve a complete ribbon rebuild.
Why let facts or common sense get in the way of your opinions.

Mike, the magnets ARE in sections. I'll defer to DaveS or Toy Maker for details, as I've never had any issues with my ribbons (AL-IIIs).
