Question about Nakajima AE-710 Typewriter

1 Answer

Carriage return not fully functional.

When I power on carriage returns all the way to the left. But after typing one line and hitting return it only returns maybe 3 or 4 spaces. Can't backspace any further either. Tried margin release. Tried clearing formats. Is there a way to return unit to factory defaults? Any other ideas?

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!

After typing first line, hit the return key. The carriage would not return to the far left margin...it only moved 12 or so spaces to the left.


The carrier slides on a silver shaft that is about 1/2" thick spray some WD40 on the shaft, if that doesn't do it you have to get some on the carrier motor bearings located under the case in the R. rear corner.

Carriage return stuck on left side when powering on


The first thing to try is to lubricate the silver rail that the carriage rides on. A few drops of a light oil ( sewing machine oil ) may take care of the problem. Turn machine off, apply oil and move carriage by hand back and forth. Turn back on and see if this took care of it.
