Carriage return problem

I have a Smith Corona Electra CT typewriter. when i press the return key, it returns the carriage fine to the next line and to the beginning margin, but it's as if the thing that's supposed to hold it there is not working, so it quickly slides back to the end of the line and rings the bell. This is very annoying as it renders my typewriter pretty useless until i can fix the problem.

any and all help appreciated. thanks.

The tab button may be stuck or the carriage release lever is stuck or a broken escapement.

On the right hand side of the roller, there are two levers you can pull forward. That should fix it.

Take your sales from last year, multiply by 6 and then divide by 100. That is the amount you will increase. Add it to last years sales.

My 202 doorbell does not "react" if the button is pushed AFTER my neighbor unlocks his car by using his remote key. Can I change the frequency range of the doorbell?


look for a cover that has small switches under it. You can change frequencies there. You must match the door button the same way .

We have forgotten the Administration password for our EStudio 350 & 450. Is there any way of resetting? Thanks Ben


The default password is either 12345 or 123456.
If neither of those work then, turn machine off then power on while pressing the 0 & 8 keys then enter 263, then press Start. It will then display the Admin Password.

My fax wont work in my ricoh aficio 1515 mf??


Using the 1515 as a fax machine is a pretty simple procedure if everything works right. All you have to do is hook a working phone line up to the phone jack on the back of the copier (the one labeled LINE, not TEL).

Why won't the fax work? If it is giving you an error message, what is the message?

If you are not getting a dial tone when faxing, unplug the fax from the phone line and plug a working phone in, and see if the phone gets a dial tone. If it doesn't, there is a problem with your phone line.

You can also try plugging the fax machine into another phone line. If the fax works on that line, then there may be a problem with the first line.

Are you having problems sending faxes or receiving them, or both?

Printer won't recognize cartridge


I had the same problem. I'm not sure but I think I replaced the cartridges when the printer was on because I turned the printer off and removed one of the cartridges. When I turned the printer back on it recognized that cartridge but not the others. I turned the printer off again, rmoved all cartiridges and put them back in when the printer was still off. When I turned the printer on again I had no problems. So...try turning off the printer, rmove all cartridges, then put them back in and restart printer. Hope this works for you .
