Question about Fax Machines

1 Answer

I recently purchased an old IBM Correcting Selectric II; I have everything working (I think), but my big problem is the "carriage return". It will scroll the page up as it should, however it only jumps and jerks toward the left a few spaces at a time. It is almost as if the tab sets are working backwards; the carriage won't return to the left margin except when I continue repeating the Return button.

Dora 204 SP Olivetti Typewriter I have an intermittent sticking returns key Causes paper to run on. Can I do anything about it, or can you tell me of a Service Centre in Hampshire n UK.


hello

take Q-tip cotton , apply small portion on hammer letter keys and carriage -- moving parts only

dip and smear into vasaline, wipe off excess. apply to the keys sticking or to carriage return key . this is amechanical sticking , so apply to where the part (carriage or moving part) applies. Also, take a plain paper , keep tapping the key and then return key carriage , until sticking stops and until the vasaline dissipates . repeat the typing for about 1-2 mintes until excess vasaline is no longer present on paper after typing.

repeat this process anytime the keys stick

hpe this helps

How to change the ink cartridge


With the power turned on, do the following:
  1. Open the ink cartridge cover (the carriage should move to the right to access if not already there
  2. Pull the lock release levers down
  3. Remove the old cartridge
  4. Remove protective tape from new cartridge
  5. Insert new cartridge
  6. Move lock release levers back up
  7. Close cartridge door (you may hear the carriage move back to the ready position.
That is the procedure for changing an ink cartridge. Thank you for using Fixya and please remember to return to rate the answer you've just been provided.

IBM Wheel Writer 6 font help


Hi:

There is no manual way to change the pitch on any IBM Wheelwriter. If you want a different pitch you need to change the printwheel.

I have a Brother 5900MDS word processor. When I turn it on, it makes a noise and says "check printer." I can't find any one locally to fix it. Cani fix it myself? Thanks.


Open the top cover and turn off. Try to move the carriage by hand. Put a couple drops of oil on the long silver shaft, work it back and forth.

This does not sound good!
