    I FOUND OUT THE REASON FOR MY PROBLEM WITH THE CARRIAGE STAYING TO THE LEFT AND BEEPING. IT WAS A PROBLEM WITH WIRING TO THE CARRIAGE. THEY DO GO BAD. IT HAD TO BE TORN COMPLETELY APART BY A REPAIRMAN. COST WAS $114.00 AND IF IT HAPPENS AGAIN NOT WORTH FIXING.

Beeping


If it beeps when you turn it on, most likely it is failing the post routine. The number of beeps will tell you what is wrong (if you have the error codes). Sometimes that will happen if the carriage is not all the way to the left at power on. Turn it off, and see if you can gently move the carriage all the way to the left and try it again.

Display Screen reads "4check printer". Carriage


Check the printwheel to be sure it is properly installed. Remove the ribbon and L/O tape and try it, you are looking for anything in the way of the P/W or carroer.

Carriage all the way to the left, constant beeping sound


The Mastertype 3 is the same machine as the Nakajima AE-710.
Check that the Print wheel is installed correctly.
Check the multi-wire flex harness underneath the carriage assembly...there may be broken wires.

Carrier stays to the left


Look inside the machine and make sure nothing has fallen into it that may be blocking the carriage from reaching it's "home" position. Sometimes a lift off spool will fall off and do that.

Striker Not Working. New Problem, now.


One very important thing with Brothers typewriter, If the keyboard is not locked in place under the catches, it will not complete the home cycle. In other words when the carriage returns to the left it will cycle and then beep usually continually. The reason the carriage stop time switch is attaced to the keyboard not the side frame. You might look at that....Could be other problems too. keep in touch

Beeping sound when powering unit on


Have you simply pushed the carriage back to the middle? If it is like the ML100 (it looks the same) you can just push it over ...with the pwoer off. Then put in you new ribbon. And this time, when you turn it on, it is the new ribbon that hits a switch on the underside of the keyboard, located to the upper left. If you do not have a ribbon installed, it will travel all the way to the left, and beep, beep, beep, beep. ,,,, The switch is hit with the ribbon housing.

Olivetti Lettera 32 Typewriter Carriage Stuck Jammed Locked Up rigidly all the way to left.


There might be a little tab below the carriage wheel on the left of the machine. You should be able to move it up or down, and release the mechanism.
