Shift Key Problem , Royal Quiet Deluxe

The machine is in fine working order aside from a persistent shift key issue. When I press shift in an attempt to capitalize letters, contact with the paper is off. I get strange marks above and below the type line, as if the letter cannot be fully formed and the key is mis-striking. I'm pretty sure this is an adjustment issue, but I don;t know how to correct it. Can you help?

    Thanks, Paolo. I took the Royal to a very old and experienced repairman, possibly the last one left in North Carolina. He discovered that someone (at some point between 1946 and 2013) had tampered with the shifting screw, just as you suggest. It was a simple matter for him to fix it. He cleaned it for me, replaced the platen and adjusted it beautifully. It's now the smoothest typing and most beautiful machine I have ever worked with.

There is a carriage shifting screw on both sides of the typewriter. You will recognize this because it is a screw that has a big bump head with felt on it. It is being hit when you hit that shift lever. You will have to loosen the securing nut first before adjusting.

It sounds like a keyboard problem or a spill. If you can get someone to admit to a spill and it is just a clear liquid no sugar or cream, turn it on the back and let it sit it may dry out. If not contact Geo. Beyers Co. @8003928085 tell them O'reilly sent you.

Your machine is working properly, I am sorry to tell you that your machine does NOT have that function.

This is the difference between Shift Lock and Caps Lock.

1) Shift Lock is the traditional upper case used since the oldest mechanical typewriters

2) Caps Lock (what you want) works like a computer, where you get upper case Alphas and numbers.

Brother does include this feature on some models, but I am sorry to say not yours.

If this helps you, PLEASE log back on to this webpage and leave comment. It's nice to know that I am helping someone and not just wasting my time.

I am trying to do a cap and can't figure out how to to change frame setting to be able to do this


Are you talking about making text capitalized?

If so, then all you need to do is hold down your "shift" key on the bottom left of your keyboard at the same time you press the letter in which you want to make capital and then release both keys.

If you want to type a whole line of capitalized letters, press the "cap lock" key on the bottom left side of your keyboard and then you dont have to hold down the shift key.

How to type in capital letters on facit typewriter?


You did not specify if it was a manual or electric or the model, so assuming it is a standard manual or electric machine, push down on the shift key and hold it, then type your letter or letters. If you are typing everything in caps, press the shift lock key.

Cannot use letters of my laptop unless use fn key but not capital


You need to press the NumLock key to get the keyboard to get back to alphanumeric - it has a symbol of a lock with a number 1 on it. A LED should also go out/icon in your tool tray should disappear as well.
