  1. It’s a later series, but likely to be similar in terms of ribbon and wheel insertion/removal and basic functions. Can’t guarantee it, though 😉


  2. Thank you! Just one more question please if I may,

    Would this manual be similar in terms of the general usage?, cartridge replacement, setup, etc

    Thank you! Appreciate the help!
