Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I have the Triumph Contessa Typewriter and can't get the platen to move. I guess, it's some kind of travel lock, and I don't know where to unlock it. Is anyone familiar with this typewriter and can help me?

SOURCE: Unlocking a typewriter.
I'm a bit confused on this one. I have a XL 1000 and it has no display. How can it "say" it's locked? Some of the Smith Coronas have a printhead lock to keep it from being damaged in transport, but not this model. Need more info.

Margin Release should be near the top of the keyboard on the left or ride side of the keyboard. You may have a sticky margin lock bail or a spring loose or broken on the bail mechanism if the margin release doesn't work. Sometimes the linkage for the bail needs to be adjusted. If you are mechanically inclined, you can possibly follow it through, but if not, seek out a service tech.

Check your local phonebood for typewriter repair shops. The typewriter you have iwas manufactured by Smith-Corona for Sears.
