Question about Typewriters
Please excuse my lack of proper typewriter terminology, I'm new to this,
but I hit the "bing" button which releases the carriage to the left so I could start a new sentence, and the carriage jammed, seemingly as far as it could go to the left. It has been suggested to me that the carriage has gone off the rail, but I would think it might wobble about a bit if that were the case, or be at some angle, but it does not, it is absolutely rigid and immovable.
I feel like this is probably something really simple to solve, and I'm a bit of an idiot for asking, but any reply or help on how I can free this carriage back into order is greatly appreciated.
Thanks and regards,
There might be a little tab below the carriage wheel on the left of the machine. You should be able to move it up or down, and release the mechanism.
