Typewriter stuck key

Hiya. I just read your solution for fixing an un-stuck key. As far as I can tell, it seemed fantastic. The problem is the "as far as I can tell" part. Could you explain it to a lay person? I really don't know anything about any of these parts. Would you mind taking some of your valuable time to explain to a dummy with phrases like "the cylindrical bar that goes under the hook thing in the middle on the underside?" I would really appreciate it if you wouldn't mind deigning to that.

It's a Remington Streamliner. Thanks so much if you can help.

If beep that does not stop after start up you may have bad key switch or the ribbon end sensor may be stuck . Check it out, and get back with any info nomatter how small , listen to it very closely when you turn it on you should hear the print assembly check for the home position, this may seem insignificant but my be the vital info that tips the scales you way, good luck, Bret

I got an really old typewriter for my birthday last week and yesterday i deceided to type a letter to a friend on it. When i was testing out stuff, tabs and things like that, my space was stuck. After...


Your typewriter may just need some lubrication. using a 3 in 1 house hold oil, add a few drops to each letter arm at the bottom where it connects.If possible,use a compressed air source to blow out the entire unit (wear saftey glasses of course), the lubricate the moving key areas. This is the best case fix, worst case would be parts need replacement.

IBM selectric II carriage stuck in right margin


There is a thin metal ribbon in the back that has come off the wheel. It is a devel of a thing to get back on.

Remove the cover and watch ... you will see what I am talking about.

It may have come un-attached ... equally difficult to fix without the little thingie the typewirter mechanic uses.

good luck

IBM Selectric II typewriter stuck in correcting position


If you know how to remove the right dust cover (black inside the T/W below the carrier) next to the R. side frame is the correction set up mech. spray some WD40 on the arms especially where they pivot, they should free up.

Cursor stuck


Perhaps the cat set the L. margin allthe way to the right. Press the mar rel key, backspace to the left end and press L. mar key.

Stuck in a Mode

These guys are repairers so they may have extra copies.
IBM's Typewriter's site also has manual for sale for less than $20.

The typewriter seems to have a bad ribbon cartridge or a bad typing wheel. Take each one out and try to see if it will type normal. If one does, then you know to replace it.
