Question about Typewriters
We came into work this morning and turned on the typewriter. It was making a popping noise. It will return, tab over, etc., with the exception of the keys typing. I have no idea what could be wrong with it.
It was working when we left Friday and now its Monday and it just stopped. Anybody have any idea what might be wrong with it?
This may sound stupid but lift it up a few inches and let it fall to desk. one of the character keys could be stuck underneath and this will jog it free. also see if you can shift. see if it makes a noise when you shift. It might be a shift clutch spring problem. I have been fixing these for 30 years. Lawrence
