    Your advice has not helped at all.  It appears that you are not familiar with the typewriter as there is no way to take off the bottom!  Your other suggestions were also not helpful.

    The 1st Guru had no idea what he was talking about, and the 2nd didn't understand my problem either.  
     A 'locked position' has nothing to do with the ribbon.  


    Anyway, I was able to solve the problem myself.

    i presume you don't mean me. look at the ribbon. if you see an elastic between over the top of the ribbon cartridge. remove the elastic left side first and remove the cardboard piece.

Hi there,

Well you can try to open the bottom of the unit and look down at the bottom 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.
Can you able to move the carriage release levers?
you can also try some little lube spray.

Good Luck!!

Thanks

My smith corona xl 2500 in locked. How do I unlock it?


Hi:

Remove the ribbon and look on the right side of the carrier that the ribbon sits on. You should see a lock lever that you can push to release the locked carrier.

Unlocking a typewriter.


I'm a bit confused on this one. I have a XL 1000 and it has no display. How can it "say" it's locked? Some of the Smith Coronas have a printhead lock to keep it from being damaged in transport, but not this model. Need more info.
