Check to be sure the platen is still fully seated in the side frames.
Align the blacl latches with the side frames and press firmly on both sides. Dropping is not a good thing.

Am assuming by "paper cyliner" you mean the platen - a 14" or so long black rubberized roller. Lift up the cover and look on either side of the platen - you will see two 1/2" or so clips. These compress and the platen can be lifted out. Chances are one end has come loose - pop it back in.

If nothing happens no carrier movementor paper feed you probably have a bad keyboard.
If the carrier moves but no feed the index motot may need to be lubed.
If the roll moves but the paper dosen't you may have debris on the paper tray or bad lower fed rolls.
