Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I have a Swintec 8012. From time-to-time (and just within past several months) the carriage/printwheel assembly will "freeze" at the left end at startup, with a buzzing sound that lasts for a few seconds, turns into a beeping sound and then stops. When operating correctly, the assembly moves the length of the carriage rod, returning to rest just inside the left margin setting.
What is going on? And can it be repaired?
The silver shaft that the printwheel carrier moves on may be dry. Turn the power off..apply a few drops of oil to a clean rag and wipe the shaft. so this twice. also put a small drop of oil on either end of the shaft..this may help.
