Question about Fax Machines

1 Answer

I have a Royal Model FP manual typewriter. Made in 1957. Excellent condtion except the "speed spacer" or space bar does not advance the carrage. Further when typing the carrage sticks or doesn't move which causes "double strikes" instead of advancing. What to do? Where to go? Nobody in my area works on manual typewriters here anymore.. Thanks in advance. Choose

Unfortunately, they are a thing of the past, the only place you can try is a specialty repair shop that has been around for a long time.

Try this site (if you are a handyman for the service manual)

Our fax machine - panasonic model fp-342 can't received fax due to error display "fax memory full" . How can i fix that?

This fax machine stores the faxes in memory and then prints them out.

If it's unable to print them, is either because there is no paper or no ink.
The memory eventually gets full and stops receiving faxes.

Re Olympia manual typewriter - the ribbon spool does not turn/rotate when the typewriter keys are punched. Result - ribbon wears out fast.

The ribbon advance on these machines is a rachet system, underneath the ribbon. one of 2 likely things.

1. typewriter has nor been serviced in a long time and rachet system is gunked up; or

2. detent spring has broken or popped off.

You may be able to spray some contact cleaner down in the ratchet system, or take it it in for a servicing.
If the spring is popped off, you can re-install it. You should be able to see where it goes. There will be an arm between 2 toothed gears, just flopping . It has been a looong time since I have worked on a manual typewriter!

Hope this helps

Cash register PE ondisplay and nothing will work

It means printer error. Usually after a paper jam. Clear any paper out and try turning off and on at the wall. ***************************************************************************** *****************************************************************************

When typing, a letter is hit but a number is being printed. Typewriter is a Brother CE-500 model. We think you need to use the "Code"function but the manual has been missing for some time

Turn typewriter off, hold down CODE, turn machine back on.

Make sure you are not set for PROPORTIONAL SPACING.

Remove print wheel, turn machine off, reinstall print wheel, turn back on.
