Question about IBM 3500 Typewriter
IBM Correcting selectric II allkeys are jammed,space bar does not work.and will not forward or tab. It will return but slowly. I have removed the ribbon which was tangled.
It sounds like the cycle shaft is not fully in home
position. With the machine OFF, try to turn the print shaft (the steel shaft with the single groove that goes through the carriage) top towards the back of the machine. Then turn the machine on. Try the space bar first. If it works, your machine probably needs the cycle clutch spring adjusted or replaced.
