The impact solenoid has a rubber pad or cap on the tip that hits the hammer and it has probably broken off...needs the impact solenoid repaired or replaced and then the impact adjusted.

Carriage does not advance when pressing the space bar or pressing a key. Does advance when depressing tab.


If you press a key does it type or try to correct? The escapement mechanism that allows it to move from space to space may be sticking and causing your problem. That mechanism just may need a flushing and lubrication. You will see a shaft that runs through the carriage. Try to turn it top to rear until it stops. if you hear a click then it has been turned the right amount. If it doesn't turn, then it is as far as it goes. Try hitting the spacebar and see if the carriage moves. If it moves, hit any key and see if it moves. if it moves, hit another key. If it doesn't move then your escapement mechanism needs to either be flushed and lubed or adjusted.

Keys strike paper but don't space


Is it all of the keys or just some of the keys don't space? Check to see if the lang light is turned on. If it is, hold down the control button (the button left of the spacebar) and hit the letter "X" and see if the light goes out.

It's stuck in place and won't move either left or right. When I hit a key it types that letter, but the paper doesn't move to the next space


If it is stuck in the middle of the page it probably has a carriage lock usually just below the carriage on the R. or L. side.

Have an old Brother Deluxe 650TR portable that hasn't been used for a long time. The carriage will move but will not stay at the right margin after being returned. Any suggestions?


Does the carriage just move back and forth on its own? Space bar work? The escapement may be sticky from lack of use. You may be able to see it from the upper rear or the bottom. It will move when you hit space bar or keys. Try working WD40 into it, it'll take a bit of use to free.

How to set margins


after hitting the return key, the carrier goes all the way to the left margin. If you need the margin to move even more to the left, hit the margin rel key and backspace to the desired position and hit the mar left key. Same for the right margin, use the space bar to move the carrier all the way to the right margin and press the margin rel and move the carrier to the desired position and press the mar right key.

The print solenoid has the plastic cap on the end broken or desintagrated. i fix this all the time. also make sure you didnt turn on the lang feature. that will keep your carrier in one spot for certain foreign symbols. to clear it hold down the features key next to the space bar and hit the lang key with the features key depressed.

WON'T PRINT LETTERS


There is a clutch drive that releases the hammer to strike. Probably needs to be replaced. Unfortunately, probably not worth repairing.
