Many of these older portables have a carriage lock, usually just below the carriage on the L. or R.

Olivetti Lettera 22 Typewriter carriage does not move


There are two ways to deal with that (before taking you olivetti to an authorized dealer):
  1. There's a lock key under the carriage. Have you unlocked it?
  2. The carriage might have been locked by a piece of paper or something else. Release it (pull it) and clean its passage (there is a button you press in order to release it - proceed with care).

It's stuck in place and won't move either left or right. When I hit a key it types that letter, but the paper doesn't move to the next space


If it is stuck in the middle of the page it probably has a carriage lock usually just below the carriage on the R. or L. side.

My typewriter doesn't move forward every time i type ... what do i do?


You may need to reset your margins with the margin set button on either side of the roller. If the carriage is stuck right in the middle and will not move forwards or backwards, there is a little toggle button right under the carrier return handle. You may have to turn your TW on it's right side to see this small hidden button. This locks the carriage down for travel. Find that little toggle and move it.

When I push down on the Capital letter key the carriage does not left in order to type in capital letters and puntuations (Olivetti ms-25 manual typewriter).


I wish I could see the unit. Something is blocking the lift assembly. Something simple I am sure. Lift it and lay it on it's back and look for a lever or spring that may be out of place. Maybe something dropped inside and is jamming it. Big paper clips or if you have a small child around. Little toys, pencils etc. Good luck.

Olivetti MS 25 Premier Plus


need to state problem a little more clearly. is it too high or low so that only the top or bottom of the letters show? can you take it and get your money back? in my opinion these machines are not constructed very well and are not very good to even type on. if you can find an older manual typewriter that is in good shape it will type better and last longer - sorry
