How to unlock electric type writer?


Christine: According to VintageTypewritterShoppe.com: "Underwood portables have a simple carriage catch on the left side right below the carriage. Move the carriage to the right a few inches to disengage. Remington portables have two systems. Early portables require the sliding out of the platen shaft/knob on the right end of the carriage. The lock lever is located on the left end of the carriage and is spooned against the left side carriage release lever. Newer Remington's(Model 5/Streamliner/Deluxe) have a small lever on the left end of the carriage located in the same spot as the earlier models. There is a little ball on top of the lever. Push the lever to the rear to disengage the lock."

Where is the lever that releases the carriage on the olivetti 32


There is a chrome lever on the right side of the carriage on top that should manually release the carriage by pushing down on it. If this works but there is no spring tension pulling the carriage to the left, then the drawband is probably broken. If pushing the lever down doesn't work then eithor the mechanism is broken or locked up or there is a carriage lock that need to be released. If there is a carriage lock it would be located under the carriage on the left or right side. It would be a small chrome lever sticking out the side.

Cannot unlock the carriage


There is a little lever under the carriage on the left,used for locking the carriage when in transit.Move the lever in the opposite direction,if that does not work press the Capital Lock Key then try it.If this does not work,it will be your carriage return spring having lost its tension.This is the round drum(wheel ) on the back of the carriage connected by a cord.

Hermes 3000 carriage is "locked."


I think there's a lock there in the spacing. Mine can be locked by pulling the spacing lever far upward. Just set your spacing and I think it will unlock.

How do you unlock a De Ville 410


Are you saying the carriage is locked, so it can't go back & forth? Sticking out of the right-hand side of the carriage are two tabs; I think they're light blue. Pressing down one one locks the carriage. Pressing down on the other unlocks it. When the carriage is unlocked and moves out of the way, you can see the ramps and notch molded into the bottom of the case to hold the carriage for shipping.

Olivetti Lettera 32 typwritter carriage doesn't move


If the locking lever is off, then the carriage is bound, or one of the tabs is hung, try releasing all the tabs, pushing the space bar or the tab key while gently moving the carriage.
Try all of the function like shift while gently pushing on the carriage always to the right..
also check the that the margins are not locked.
This could be a lot of different things...
