Question about Typewriters
Typewriter has been stored some 25 years .... It powered up briefly and seemed to type ok. I shut it down, but now it won't power up ..... don't know how to remove the cover to get at the switch....assuming it is the switch....HELP
Open the upper cover, remove the platen (roller) there is a latct on each side that has to be pressed down, after the platen is out thetre are two latches one on each dide just inside the the sides of the case pull them to the front, flip the margins inside and lift the case, give the motor a little push, if it starts get a can of WD40 and spray everything inside the T/W that moves.
