Carriage return not working

I moved my IBM Wheelwriter 35 to another desk and now the carriage return will not work and neither will the backspace. On the display screen it shows a 1 with a up triangle and down triangle beside it. I have tried everything to get it to work again. can you tell me what will make the carriage return not work?

Thank you
Judy

Turn off T/W and see if the carrier will move back and forth freely, if so try removing the batteries and unplugging the machine this will reset to defalt settings. CAUTION THIS WILL ALSO CLEAR YOUR MEMORY!! If the carrier is hard to move a little light oil on the shaft it slides on may cure the problem.

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.

Carriage won't return all the way to the left- almost as if a left margin has been set. Help.


if margin clear doesn't work try putting some light weight oil on the rails the carriage rides on. turn unit off, oil it and move carriage back and forth by hand then turn it on and see if that fixes it.

My IBM selectric II typewriter carriage stuck in right margin


Sounds like the return lever arm is not putting enough pressure on the return clutch, or the clutch is slipping. The exp key uses the same clutch but the pressure comes from your finger. Theres no way you can fix this yourself. Get an IBM mechanic.
