Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I love my IBM Selectric but haven't used it in a while. Now, when I type, it only slightly advances, leaving a long black, thick line where the characters should be. Also the spacebar doesn't appear to be advancing.. any suggestions that I can try myself (oil?) before I take it to a repair shop?
Sounds like the carrier is hitting the paper androller as it slowly moves. If you havent used it for a while it might need cleaning and lube. Lawrence
