You didn't give a make or model but usually there is a lever just below the carriage on thbe R or L side that unlocks them.

SOURCE: carriage release
try jiggling the carraige around a bit and then try using that lever thats on the right side of the carraige. you might even try both at once to see what frees it up. i had the same problem and it worked for me. That's the right tab, it may be in a jammed position so it wont open properly.

It is pretty common for the pad on the solenoid to strike the keys wears out, and for the batteries to be dead for the memory. Your machine probably needs a good cleaning, oiling, and a new pad for the striker. about $100.00 in the shop.

Without knowing the make it's hard, but it could be that some of the roller bearings used to make the carriage run smoothly have come out of the retainers and dropped from the machine. If as you say there is a lot of slop in the inner carriage it's a fair bet that's your problem
