Some keys not working

My typewriter is fairly new and was working perfectly until a day or two ago when I think I accidentally hit a key which changed it somehow. Now I cannot type the keys 5,6,u,i,k or l. When I tried to print the demo, I discovered that my Backspace key does not work at all. Someone told me that I had hit something that took it out of the English mode. My User guide does not refer to this. There is an answer to a similar prob in your troubleshoot column which states to hold the code key and keyboard key at the same time. I have nothing marked keyboard key.

How to remove code KYBD099

Take a look at the "L" key, if it has the word "lang" in green print at the bottom of the key, try holding down the "code" key while pressing the "L" key. This will take it out of language mode. This mode is only used if you have a foreign language keyboard.

When I hit the return button my Olympia locks up until I turn it off and back on again.

Try a shot of WD40 ON THE SILVER SHAFT that the carrier slides on.

I just got a typewriter (I think it's a Royal #10, circa 1933) and it was working perfectly, but then I hit the margin release key (I think this is the last thing I did) and now all of the hammers only go...

The mech that locks the keys at the right margin did not return to position after margin release. Probably sticky with age. Tough to talk you through but it needs to be cleaned and lightly lubed.

The letters I key in do not type until I hit enter.

If this is a WW6 it must have the display option. There is a slide switch on the display that is probably in the wrong position.

My keys have locked. How do you unlock them?

If any of the keys are stuck in the down position, it will lock out the entire keyboard so that none of the keys will work.
One think you can try, is turn the typewriter upside down, and hit the bottom of the unit (right above the keyboard). See if there anything that falls out besided dust. Also hit ALL of the keys. Each and every one of them just to make sure non of them are stuck down.
Try this a couple of times, and see if it helps any.
Good luck.
