Have IBM type writer, the carrigage return does not take it back to the beginning. The latch is released, i can move it manually. It tries to go back, it just won't.
All mechanical movements are fine.

I havr royal type writer alpha 7000.
Up on powerup it displays message "pronter problem".

Are these problems fixable. can you advise what steps should I take.

IBM has a return clutch tensioner spring that gets streached and causes that trouble it is a specially shapped spring but you can see it if you remove the black plastic cove on the inside right sideand looking close the the center frame for a spring that is fitted to a coiled spring that is around the cennter shaft hope this helps.

After typing first line, hit the return key. The carriage would not return to the far left margin...it only moved 12 or so spaces to the left.


The carrier slides on a silver shaft that is about 1/2" thick spray some WD40 on the shaft, if that doesn't do it you have to get some on the carrier motor bearings located under the case in the R. rear corner.

My 93 caravan the hood latch won't catch to keep the hood closed


Your hood latch probably isn't returning to the right position for it to catch. This is commonly caused by one of two problems: (1) too much hardened grease and crud on the latch itself is keeping it from operating freely; or (2) the hood release cable has gotten rusty or kinked over time and is no longer releasing completely.
I would suggest testing the hood release cable before doing anything else. It's an easy test and it only takes a minute. Enlist the help of a second person to pull the hood release lever while you look at the hood latch. When your helper pull on the release, you should see the cable pull part of the hood latch. When they let go, that part should swing back to its prior position. Using a long-shafted screwdriver, see whether you can "help" that moving part move any further on its return path. If you can push the latch any significant amount, it's not returning all the way to its proper position, and your hood release cable is probably binding.
In the short term, if you manually push the hood latch back into position, you should be able to close your hood again. However, you'll have to do this each time you open the hood. In addition, you run the risk that, not too far in the future, your hood release cable will actually completely bind or snap, and then you'll have a much harder time opening your hood to replace the cable (or do anything else, like add oil or washer fluid).

Hood release under the dash has no tension on it. Hood will not latch closed


The latch is stuck in the open position. I always found white lithium grease worked best on those latches but any good lubricant will work. Try moving the latch manually with a screwdriver. After applying the lubricant move the latch a few times. You should see the tension return to the release, if it doesn't you have a broken release cable.

IBM Wheel Writer 6 font help


Hi:

There is no manual way to change the pitch on any IBM Wheelwriter. If you want a different pitch you need to change the printwheel.

Carriage return problem


If it returns with the express key the latching mech. on the rt. side is probably gummy. Take off the case, get some WD40 and spray the mechinism that latches the ret on the rt. side below the platen.
