    Did this problem just suddenly happen? If it did, try pushing each key, one at a time. Sometimes the interposer underneath a key is half pressed locking out the rest of the keyboard. Let me know.

First; depress the tab key. If that unlocks it, then you need a return clutch or torque spring replaced. Does the spacebar or tab key work? Sometimes you can gently press everykey on the keyboard and eventually one will release and unlock.

How loud should the IBM Selectric III typewriter be? I turn it on and I don't here anything. It was brand new, still in the shrink wrap.


You should hear the motor and the function keys should work index ret. etc. If it has been sitting for a long time the motor or power switch may be gummy.
