Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
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.
