SOURCE: Carriage return problem

If it returns with the express key the latching mech. on the rt. side is probably gummy. Take off the case, get some WD40 and spray the mechinism that latches the ret on the rt. side below the platen.

SOURCE: My IBM selectric II typewriter carriage stuck in right margin

Sounds like the return lever arm is not putting enough pressure on the return clutch, or the clutch is slipping. The exp key uses the same clutch but the pressure comes from your finger. Theres no way you can fix this yourself. Get an IBM mechanic.

Open the top cover and locate the shiny rod that the carrier moves back and forth across. Use some WD-40 on a rag to clean it well the apply a light coating of it to the entire shaft.

How do I increase the margins on the typewriter

To set a margin beyond the left or right margin, move the carrier (or cursor) to that margin, press the Margin Release key, then proceed to move the carrier (or cursor) to the desired position. Then, press the Left or Right margin key to set the new margin. A beep will sound indicating the new margin has been set. When you set a new left or right margin, the previous margin is automatically cleared.

Alternatively, you can type beyond the right margin by pressing the Margin Release key and then continue typing when the carrier (or cursor) stops at the right margin. To type beyond the left margin, press the Margin Release key and then the Backspace key to move the carrier (or cursor) to the position where you want to start typing.

Remember to always use genuine Swintec ribbons and lift-off tapes for your Swintec 7040, which can be found at Swintec Typewriter Supplies .

Use your space bar to move carrier to desired location, hold down Alt key button on bottom left (next to space bar) and press the number 5 numeric key on top row. That should set your right margin.

How can I get my typewriter back to its intial settings

There is no keystroke pattern to reset the EM series typewriter. There are two methods to reset this typewriter.
1.You can reset the daisywheel and remain on the same line of type, simply lift the top cover and then close it back down. The carrier will move to the left, reset the daisywheel and return to the last space typed.
NOTE: This will not affect the format settings (bold, underline, etc)
2.If you want to abandon the current typing position; turn off the typewriter, wait 10 seconds for the power supply to reset and then turn the typewriter back on. The typewriter will reset and the carrier will return to the beginning of the current line.
NOTE: Turning off the power will restore the format settings to standard default settings (bold, underline, etc).

The return is stuck on 80 on the guide. I cannot

Turn the T/W off and slide the carrier back and forth. If it goes to the left then you have the L. margin set at 80.

Return to the margin, press and release the margin release key, backspace to the desired location, press the L. margin key.

How to set margins

after hitting the return key, the carrier goes all the way to the left margin. If you need the margin to move even more to the left, hit the margin rel key and backspace to the desired position and hit the mar left key. Same for the right margin, use the space bar to move the carrier all the way to the right margin and press the margin rel and move the carrier to the desired position and press the mar right key.

IBM Wheelwriter 1000 wont Return everytime

Probably no cracking required. Spray a little WD40 on the silver shaft that the carrier slides on, if that dosen't do it there is the carrier motor in the left rear that the bearings dry up in a little WD40 will work there as well.

Try a little light oil on the silver shaft that the carrier slides on, if that doesn't do it then the carrier motor needs lubed, it is under the case on the R. rear corner.

Typewriter problem

It could be a bad carrier return motor or the carrier is stuck . Turn it off and try to move the carrier left and right it should move with light pressure if it don't try wiping the round rail it slides on with a light oil then work it back and forth a few times repeat until it moves when turned on.
