Remove print wheel to ensure its not jamming, switch machine back on and see if carriage returns to the LHS home position. If it does not and the carriage is just shaking and the noise is still there, you may have a defective carriage motor or defective power supply.

Why my royal Satellite II Typewriter has a beep?

Does it work or does it just beep. Could have the margins set together.

Turn on and it has a continuous beep

Most typewriters have a "power on system test" or POST routine. Beeping means that it fails the test. With the power off, try moving the carriage all the way to the left and turn it on. Some typewriters, if the carriage is not right over the left sensor, will fail the POST. Most typewriters will check things like, "Is there a ribbon installed?" "Does the Daisy Wheel home?" and will move the carriage left to right to make sure that the sensors recognize the left and right limits. There are other checks of course, but those are the ones that are easily fixable.

Beeping sound

Usually beeps indicate an error either in operation or that the typewriter cannot complete a request or operation due to a malfunction. If the beep is continuous, you probably have a malfunction and should have it serviced.

Humming noise after turning typewriter on

If that is all that happens, no lights, no beeping you probably need a power supply or a board. If there are lights and beeping we need to know what it's doing.

Typewriter beeps continually and first and third lights from the bottom right blink when I turn machine on. Beeping stops after 30 seconds or so, but lights continue to blink and no keys work. I changed...

Be sure the printwheel id properly installed, remove P/W & check for dirt and debris in that area. If you have air in a can try blowin out that area.

Pitch Beeping

make sure the printwheel is locked in place, and the cover is closed. otherwise it is probably the main board or power supply. take to a repair shop for evaluation
