When I hit the return button my Olympia locks up until I turn it off and back on again.

When I hit the return key it shifts a little then all keys are frozen until I turn off and back on then it works fine until I hit the return key again.

Be sure the pitch selection is correct. If it is set to PS when using a 10,12 or 15 pitch wheel it will select incorrect letters.

SOURCE: IBM Wheelwriter 3 typing incorrect characters

If you have another printwheel try that, if you still have the trouble try blowing out the area where it is in stalled. If that fails turn the machine off then back on, after it completes the POR mark the printwheel with some white out, repeat the POR see if the mark is in the same place, if it isin't you probably have a selection plate problem.

How do I unlock the keyboard of IBM Selectric III???


The Selectric typewriter has several "interlocks" that can cause the keyboard to be locked. When you turn the machine off there is a mechanism that locks the keyboard. When you turn it on the part should move and unlock the keyboard. Sometimes this part sticks and the keyboard will remain locked. When you type any character the keyboard is locked to prevent two keys trying to type at the same time. The machine locks and unlocks very fast. One keys is locked in and prevents others from working. try turning on the machine and hitting every key just a little bit harder and see if it then types. When you shift, as the ball is turning the keyboard is locked temporarily so it won't attempt to type as the ball is turning as that would damage the machine. Sometimes the shift mechanism can cause the keyboard to remain licked as the shift may not have finished it's complete cycle. Also, the return mechanism locks the keyboard temporarily when the carrier is returning to prevent you from typing when the carrier is moving backwards. Only a qualified technician can resolve those issues.

My olympia electric typewriter is always on capital letters no matter how i unlock the keys/shift...won't go back to small letters.


You didn't give a model but there should be a key that says above or on the front of it caps or caps lock the code and that key should do it.

Computer says its locked; change users, but my mouse is locked up too.Im using my desk top to contact you.


You can use the windows key to open the start menu, then use your arrow keys to hightight turn off your computer, hit the enter key, use your arrow keys to highlight restart and hit your enter key This will restart your computer and hopefully, unlock your mouse.

Let me know if this solution works for you. If all else fails, it is acceptable to push the power button until the computer turns off, then hit it again the turn the computer back on. This is not the normally acceptable procedure for shutting windows down, but in this case, it can be done without any negative repercussions.

Ignition key won't turn. gear can't be shifted to neutral.


Check to insure that you have the correct key. If you do, spray a little WD-40 on the key, insert it and try it again. If it won't turn, turn the steering wheel as far back and forth as you can and try the key again, repeat until the key turns. The problem is that the ignition lock is slightly out of alignment, a common problem. Usually a little patience and a little more force and it will turn.

Hi i have photo copier minolta dialta di183


Enter the admin mode (U-5) by holding down the Panel Reset key for 3 seconds (until "U- " appears in the display), entering the number 5 from the keypad, and pressing the start key. Enter the 6 digit administrator code and press the start key again. The display should show "Ad-". Enter 1 from the keypad and again press the start key. The display should read "0". Hit the clear key, enter "1" and hit the start key yet again. Hit Panel Reset several times (or turn the machine off and back on) to return to normal operation.

The default administrator code is 000000.

If you do not know the administrator code, it will be necessary to reset it using the tech rep mode. Enter the tech rep mode by pressing the Meter Count key and hitting "Stop - 0 - 0 - Stop - 0 - 1" quickly. Then hit 7 and the start key. The administrator code will flash. You can write it down and use it, or hit the clear key and enter a new code, then the start key. Exit as above.

My typing goes uppercase without hitting the caps lock


I have the HP Pavilion and cap locks does the same thing.
THIS WORKS EVERY TIME. Hit both the right and left shift lock simultaneously about 5 to 10 times. It immediately disengages the cap locks. It is a little bit of a hassle, but I'm just used to it. It may happen 3 times per week, but I LOVE the machine, so I just fix it this way!
