It's stuck in place and won't move either left or right. When I hit a key it types that letter, but the paper doesn't move to the next space


If it is stuck in the middle of the page it probably has a carriage lock usually just below the carriage on the R. or L. side.

Without knowing the make it's hard, but it could be that some of the roller bearings used to make the carriage run smoothly have come out of the retainers and dropped from the machine. If as you say there is a lot of slop in the inner carriage it's a fair bet that's your problem

Canon starwriter 400 won't print


Usually the problem is a plugged cartridge.
It is possible the ink cartridge is empty.
It would be best to buy another cartridge and try that first.
