Help with StyleWriter 1200 - Mac Portable

I just picked up a StyleWriter 2200 and would like some help getting it working. When I press and hold the power button to print a test sheet, the printer powers on and makes the usual noise, but almost immediately grunts then fails to grab the paper and turns on the error light, indicating a misfeed. I presume the paper feed mechanism is defective. Anyone have suggestions on how to fix it, or can point me to a source of the service manual? Thanks. -- Chicago, IL Remove "GO" to reply. -- Chicago, IL Remove "GO" to reply....

    the printer powers on and makes the usual noise, but almost immediately
    grunts then fails to grab the paper and turns on the error light,

    The problem could be that the rollers have gotten hard and slick with
    age and are slipping which the printer senses as a paper jam. You might
    be able to lightly sand the rollers with fine sandpaper to restore the
    grip. There's also a product called Platen Clean which might be
    available from an office supply. It's a tub of premoistened pads with a
    cleaning solution that cleans and restores typewriter rollers.

    There's also this site:[url]http://fixyourownprinter.com/[/url]

    I had a SW 1200 that exhibited the same behavior. I disassembled the whole
    thing (easy to do IF you (1) are careful and (2) find all the hard to see
    plastic tabs) and found the rubber o-rings on two of the plastic rollers had
    split and fallen off. The local hardware store had just the right size
    replacement o-rings in the plumbing supply. The SW doesn't seem to know it
    has had a transplant from a kitchen faucet !!
