Question about IBM Wheelwriter 30 Typewriter

Cursor stuck at far right side

My mom thinks her cat walked across the keyboard, thus making the cursor stuck at the far right. She has tried everything, at least that is what she has told me! I told her I would try to get her another one but she likes this one and wants to try to fix it. She has tried holding down margin and ret keys, etc. Any suggestions?

Turn the machine off and see if the carrier will move back and forth , if it dose turn it on allow for the POR, press and release the mar rel key, backspace to the desired L. mar and press the L. mar. key.

Toshiba satellite cursor frozen to one spot how do I :unlock/unfreeze the cursor (happened after cat walked across the keyboard

The touch screen don't work ? Do you use an external mouse ? Did you replace the external mouse if you have one?
1st gingerly, and softly pass your hand across the entire keyboard from left to right, then right to left touching ALL keys [[ ALL]] . go up and down the keyboard .
2nd take the eraser of the pencil and gently TAP all keys to UNstick any key that could be shorted out. If that don't work, get back to me so that I can show you how to use a WORD PROCESSOR to find your problem.

Stuck cursor

Check all keys and make sure none are stuck down. This will lock up the keyboard. Any lights flashing? Any beep patterns?
