Would anyone have a working printer or complete machine?
Thank you,

Dave, pull the power supply and check AC voltage across the large C1 capacitor.  500 VAC or more is a good reading.  If it is around 480, it can cause extra cycles of the ribbon motor, especially when you use the correction key.
I started in this business in 1962, and Olympia since 66 or 67. I have found many problems can cause the same symptoms, but I alway check the power supply first.

Ah!  The Hall-effect PCB; I skipped over that one.
Not a difficult fix if you can find one of the sensor PCB's anymore.
We are talking about the Olympia AEG version (ES-9x series), right?

Gear is fine. It's the home sensor on the right side.
