Coronomatic 2200 carriage return stops advancing

When you strike a key, the carriage return/platen moves to the left for the first 5-10 strokes just fine. After this point the mechanism slows down and within a few keystrokes stops moving all together. However if you press the release buttons you can move the mechanism freely. What's causing this and how do I fix it?

It sounds like you are coming up against your right margin. By hitting release you are merely bypassing the margin. You might try resetting your right margin by clearing it all the way to the right side of the carriage first then resetting it to where you want it.

Why does paper not advance to next line when carriage returns?


There might be a setting for how many lines it moves when the carriage gets to the end. It is mechanical so you'll see it!

It will not advance up when hitting return (but will return to the left side). Carriage/Roller is very tight when manually turning.


Either there is a bind in the platen (roller) or there is a piece of paper or other object caught in the feed rolls.

How to make the paper move to the left to begin tying on a 1932 remington typewriter


The platen is the (usually black) cylinder around which the paper is rolled. There is a carriage return lever mounted at the left end of the platen, which needs to be pushed inwards when the line is finished to move the paper into position for the next line.

Carriage return problem


If it returns with the express key the latching mech. on the rt. side is probably gummy. Take off the case, get some WD40 and spray the mechinism that latches the ret on the rt. side below the platen.

Smith Corona 235 DLE doesn't advance


Does the platen move or does the paper not advance? Check the paper release lever to make sure the feed wheels are snapped in place. If the platen does not move something in the paper feed motor area.

Selectrik II sat for years. No escapt to next space after typing a letter or number


Be sure to put WD40 on the escapement (under the platen and paper tray) and the escapement drive mech. (rt. rear of machine) and the correction latching mech (under the rt. dust cover).
