The ribbon is not properly place, try to exchange the the ribbon first then press down if the ribbon is still loose, there is a 2 rubber roller holding the ribbon that holds it, if you press down the rubber holder goes with it in the upper corner ok

I have a circa 1940s royal typewriter. Bought it from a professional online who claimed it worked, everything looks good but the carriage and ribbon will not move. Tried messing with the margin buttons but...


Sometimes they had a carriage lock for transporting it. Check for a little lift up lever thingy at the base of the carriage on the bar that goes across from one side to the other. Or just check around for any little levers that hold the carriage in place.

If your machine is not printing properly:
1.Examine the ribbon cartridge to make sure it has not run out of Ribbon. If your ribbon appears silver or gray, install a new cartridge.
2. Ensure the black lever in the center of the carriage is pressed to the rear, towards the paper. If not press it to the rear to lock the Daisy Wheel into place.
3. With the typewriter turned off, press and hold down the "CODE" Key, the "SHIFT" Key, and the "TAB" Key.
4.Restore power with all three Keys depressed.
5.When the machine sounds a beep tone, release all three keys.
6.The carrier will move to the left indicating that the memory has been cleared and the machine has been reset.
7.Try typing.
If the problem continues, your unit will need servicing. You can locate a Brother Authorized Service Center in your area:

The hardware alarm indicated 00002 is indicating a problem with print head movement. More specifically the error is indicating an error when the Carriage Motor has accelerated.
This error can be indicated if there is any thing which may be preventing print head movement, things you can check include;
The printer ribbon is not jammed and is located correctly in the printer,
You can also check to ensure there is no paper jam of loose paper which may prevent print head movement,
You can also check the carriage shaft to ensure it is free from paper dust or any other obstructions.
With the printer powered off, the print head should slide freely across the width of the printer, you can then see if there is any obstruction to the print head.
Clean the carriage shaft, and ensure it is free from any form of lubricant.
Clean the timing strip and ensure it is correctly in place.

I have an error message on my 2280+ Serial Printer that says ''Hardware Alarm'' Could you be as kind as to help me with this one please?


The 2280+ will normally display two lines of numbers when it displays a Hardware Alarm error. These numbers give a better idea of what might be causing the problem.

Some things you might want to try are;

1. Power the printer off, and remove the ribbon from the printer. Try sliding the print head from side to side. The print head should be free to move when the printer is powered off. In doing this you can check for any instructions which may be stopping the print head moving.
2. Check the ribbon cartridge, ensure the ribbon cartridge is not jammed, twisted or damaged. Perhaps try powering the printer on with no ribbon and try printing to identify if the ribbon may be causing the problem.
3. Clean the Timing Strip and Carriage shaft.
The Carriage Shaft is the metal shaft that runs the width across the printer. This is the shaft the print head slides across.
The carriage shaft should be clean and free from any type of lubricant. I would recommend cleaning this shaft and any build up of paper dust or other dirt on the carriage shaft this can cause problems with print head movement. If the carriage shaft has any lubricant I would recommend cleaning this lubricant off the carriage shaft.

The Timing strip is a thin plastic strip that runs across the printer just next to the carriage shaft. I would recommend cleaning the Timing Strip with a dry cloth to remove any dirt or dust. The printer uses the timing strip to monitor the position of the print head. If the timing strip is dirty or dusty this can prevent the printer detecting the position of the print head and will cause this type of error.

Other than that you may need to see what other errors are being seen on the pritner.

Daisy wheel will not stay on wordsmith 100



CHANGING Changing The Ribbon Cassette 1) Move the print carrier to the center of the platen using the SPACE or BS key. 2) Hold the ribbon cassette on both sides and lift up the front portion (where the ribbon is exposed) to remove the cassette. 3) To insert a new cassette, place the back end of the cassette on the cassette holder on the carrier and gently press down on the front of the cassette unit it clicks into place. 4) Turn the ribbon feed knob counter-clockwise again to take up any slack in the ribbon. 5) Presss the CODE + = (SETTING) key.

Changing The Print Wheel 1) Move the print carrier to the center of the platen using the SPACE or BS key. 2) You will see a lever on the right side of the carrier. Pull this lever toward you and lift out the daisy wheel. 3) Place the daisy wheel into the slot with the characters facing the platen. 4) Push the lever back into position. 5) Press the CODE + = (SETTING) key.
It appears as though you have something that is preventing the print wheel from being locked in place by the release lever. It should make a snapping or similar noise when it is locked down.

Printer carriage not working properly in 5510 'all-in-one'


Does your carriage just move to the right side and get stuck? That's what mine does. I just fiddle with it and wiggle stuff until it's starts working and it'll work until I shut it down but when I turn it back on it starts all over again.
