Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Sounds like the escapement is stuck or broken. Can you move the carriage release levers? Do they have some spring tension on them? Open the bottom of the unit and look down at the bottm of machine and while moving the carriage, look for movement in the middle bottom section. Particularly if you depress the spacebar, watch for the escapement to rock back and forth. Maybe gummy. Try a little lube spray.
