SOURCE: hammer doesn't strike

Try taking the wheel out and aliging it with the piece in the middle with a hole in it so that the pin and the wheel connect when you push the lever forward to connect the wheel to the disk.

WHEN I TYPE SOME THING AND HIT THE SPACE BAR THE RETURN BAR IT TYPE ON THE SAME LINE AND EVERY THING IS IN ONE .


If the paper will move up with the platen knob the paper feed motor probably has a broken plastic gear. The gear and motor are sold as one 35.00.

I have been there, I think. The internal mouse in the middle of laptop has a stripe in it along one side. What happens is that your thumb touches it probably, while you are using the keyboard.Look at your hand/thumb the next time this happens.

I have a jane powertwin pro and the rear bar that hangs above the clogs for the rear brake constantly rubs on the cogs making a grinding noise with or without kids in it. Please help


Hi,

This sounds like either your brake bar is loose or has been bent out of shape. Look at the silver metal pins that click into the black cogs (on the inside of the back wheels), if these are not horizontal, then your brake bar has probably suffered some stress, causing the bar to bend and the pins to touch the cogs.
If the metal pins are totally horizontal, then your brake bar is just probably loose and needs removing and re-rivetting on tighter.

Either way, I would suggest that you contact (if in the UK) this link:

www.johnstonprams.co.uk

who will be able to assist with the repair. You can also take this back to the retailer and arrange a repair through them.

I hope this helps.

Have the same problem. Wheel does not line up with keys


You have to loosen the screw on each side of the carriage that holds the silver guide and move it away from the font wheel. The factory adjustment is to put in 2 pieces of paper and adjust to be snug. Take out the paper and it should reset properly.

Whenever i try to type the type writer types the wrong letters.


The silver guide is touching the fontwheel and keeping it from resetting properly. You need to adjust the guide away from the fontwheel by loosening one screw on each side of the guide and set for 2 pieces of paper on the platen.

My cursor on my toshiba laptop keeps jumping when am typing


Ive seen this problem a few times, the problem is that your accidently or inadvertently touching the touch pad as you type. To fix this just disable the touchpad when your typing or put a piece of paper over it. To disable the touchpad it varies on different models but can normaly be done with a button near it, a FN and F1-8 key combo or through the touchpad driver on the task bar. Consult your manual for information on how to disable this.

Printer ink cartridges move along the bar and then stop


All the HP 500 and 600 series are noisy like this. To help the problem, you would need to open the unit and blow out any dust and paper particles with low pressure compressed air. Put on some latex (medical type) gloves and wipe down and clean all surfaces with a paper towel soaked in 90% isopropyl alcohol (it will be messy). You will have to use multiple paper towels. Check all rollers and insure they will roll. Check the carriage and drive belt for damage. I would also spray a Q tip with WD-40 and swab a light coat on the carriage bar and at the metal edge of rollers (where there are bearings). If this doesn't resolve the banging noise, then there may be a problem with the stepper motor or gearing (plastic gears). This is not normally user serviceable and is not cost effective to repair. You buy a new printer.
