Re: flashing lights

You have a keyboard problem. The rt. connector has 7 contacts bussed together, wrap a piece of foil over that portion of the connector and plug it back in. BE SURE TO COVER ONLY THE 7 BUSSED CONNECTORS!

We haven't used this typewriter in quite awhile and the line space buttons keep flashing and periodically beep. Can't turn them off.

Give the silver shaft that the carrier slides on a shot or WD40, turn it off and move the carrier back and forth. Replace the batteries, clean the battery holder if they were cruddy.
If this dosen't work repost this with model # Which lights are flashing and how many beeps.

Typewriter won't type

Yes, those batteries do need to be changed. They are probably corroded. clean up all he corrosion, reinstall the batteries and give it a try!

Will not type

If the 1, 2, and 3 line space keys are flashing in order, you need to change the two AA batteries that are located inside your typewriter.
