Check the 2 silver rails that the carriage rides on, they need to have a little bit of oil on them. I f they are dry to the touch, they need to be lubricated with a little bit of a light weight oil. This could also be caused by bad keyboard. Do all the keys seem to work? Try turning machine off and move carriage by hand to the left then turn on and see what happens.

Check the printwheel to be sure it is properly installed, turn the machine off and try to move the carrier by hand, it should move with a little resistance, if it is hard to move spray some WD40 on the silver shaft that the printer slides on.

The carrier belt may be off or broken.

All of the LEDs on steady indicates a major electronic failure, likely the `function PCB'. We, as a service facility, cannot obtain schematics of those boards. We send them to a repair facility.

There are a lot of possibilities. Which lights are flashing? In sequence? Beeps? How many?

These all are codes to the problem.

Make sure the typewriter is not in Lang mode. If the Lang light is lit up then press and hold the code key to the left of the spacebar while pressing the x key. This will cause the Lang light to go out.
