The peice of my typewriter that is supposed to move the paper tothe left as you type doesnt move?


It's either in the carriage lock position, just check if it's locked in place.
The other reason may be that the return spring has broken. Easy to replace & is repairable sometimes.

How do I unlock the keyboard of IBM Selectric III???


The Selectric typewriter has several "interlocks" that can cause the keyboard to be locked. When you turn the machine off there is a mechanism that locks the keyboard. When you turn it on the part should move and unlock the keyboard. Sometimes this part sticks and the keyboard will remain locked. When you type any character the keyboard is locked to prevent two keys trying to type at the same time. The machine locks and unlocks very fast. One keys is locked in and prevents others from working. try turning on the machine and hitting every key just a little bit harder and see if it then types. When you shift, as the ball is turning the keyboard is locked temporarily so it won't attempt to type as the ball is turning as that would damage the machine. Sometimes the shift mechanism can cause the keyboard to remain licked as the shift may not have finished it's complete cycle. Also, the return mechanism locks the keyboard temporarily when the carrier is returning to prevent you from typing when the carrier is moving backwards. Only a qualified technician can resolve those issues.

I can't get the daisy wheel inserted.


When inserting the daisy wheel, it's important to remember that the "ear" is always on the upper right side. Also need to replace the "locking lever" back to it's locked position to secure the daisy wheel. Then Press [CODE]+[RESET][Q] to return carrier to prior position. Hope this answers your question.

IBM Wheelwriter 6---when I turn it on, it appears to lock


There are a few possibilities. First lube the silver shaft that the carrier slides on (WD40 works well). Remove the printwheel and check for paper or ither debris in that area. After that you e
will probably need a tech.

How do you unlock a locked carriage?


The solution is not right--there is a carriage return release lever on the far right of the typewriter, that engages a notch on the underside of the roller/carriage return--push it forward to release the lever and you are in business--it has a spoon shaped end and its on the right side
