Tried turning off and on to reset,did not work. When it first turned on, the carraige bounced against left margin several times, scraping noise. Then the beeping and flashing lights. HELP

    It worked fine until I unplugged it and plugged it in again, can't something else be tried? It's a 1 year old typewriter.

Hello,

You will need to disassemble the unit to take a look at the printer belt, most likely the printer belt is stuck or worn out, check the printer belt to see if it is worn out, if it is , replace it but if not, try to free the cartridge by gently pushing gradually to free it from where it is stuck, with this, you can carry on.

Take care.

Hello,

There is a problem with the carriage return clutch.

Sometimes it is necessary that this problem should be handled by a Professional because it is not a work a lay man can do even given the instruction he needed to do it.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

I have a brand new APC 1000xl I just plugged into the wall and it beeps every second with all the lights changing with each beep.


You can push and hold the on button to start a self test. Or you can turn off the UPS. Unplug it from the wall. disconnect the batteries and push the on button to reset the logic. if that wont work return it.

If there's a carriage jam. While the printer is turned on, Open the access door of you printer.
If the carriage is stuck at the left side, try moving it manually by hand to the right most part of the window. If it's stuck on the right, try moving it by hand to the left.
If you've already done that. While the printer is turned on, unplug the power cord from the back. Close the access door. And then plug it back in.
Make sure you restart the computer first just to avoid documents getting stuck in the print queue. Try printing again. Usually it does the trick.

The starwheel/escapement is probably gummed up. If you look from the bottom, you should see a "star" shaped part. Carefully spray a light lub around the area and move the carriage back and forth to free it. It may take several attempts.

IBM Selectric II. Hit return with cover open, and carraige is stuck at the left end. There is no response from any key.


If you can hear the motor running but nothing at all works the motor belt is probably broken. Not a job for the untrained.
