Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

Open Question

I have a Royal Alpha 2001 typewriter that has been sitting in its case for a few years. When I turn it on and type a line of characters, the carriage doesn't return to the left margin, but only about 1/2 way across the sheet. When I press return, it again doesn't go back to the left margin. When I depress the MR button and press the backspace key, it goes several spaces back, but then just beeps without going back to the left margin. Any ideas?

Sounds like the return lever arm is not putting enough pressure on the return clutch, or the clutch is slipping. The exp key uses the same clutch but the pressure comes from your finger. Theres no way you can fix this yourself. Get an IBM mechanic.

How do I fix a wrong character coming up after typing?


On the L. side of the keyboard is a slide switch labeled 15, 12, 10 and PS it should not be in PS. Slide in up & down a few times they get dirt dirty.

No power to royal alpha portable typewriter


If the motor makes any noise at all when you turn it on, the belt is probably broken.

The paper doesn't advance when I hit the return button on my Royal Alpha 2001 typewritter. How do I get it to advance the paper? I have not used it in years.


Hi!
I'm going out on a limb here.
I assume the carriage returns but the line does not advance. Close?

- There is a setting for the linespacing which is either 0 (zero), or 1, or 1 1/2 or 2
Likely, this has been inadvertently moved.

- Also, there is a way of disengaging the linespace mechanism to allow typing to be made on unevenly space forms. This might have been moved.

Please feel free to contact me anytime.

My Royal Alpha 2001 typewriter has been unused for years. I turned it on recently and it worked fine except it would not paper advance with the return button. How do I get the paper to line advance?...

I have a Royal Alpha 115 with prospell and all of a sudden 1/2 dozen won't type in small case but continues to type in capitals!


Printwheel in wrong. release the printwheel, make sure the pin is aligned with the slot on the hub and snap it back in. The printwheel should spin, then home out to the left margin, then it should be ok. If not try it again.Check to make sure no pedals on the printwheel are bent.
Hopes this helps!

Ribbon will not advance


mark the ribbon where it turns, where there is a pin of the typewriter passing through the ribbon,mark it with a white marker.
and type something, if it doesnt turn, you know the machine has a problem.
or try everytime pressing on the ribbon, if it works you know the ribbon is coming up, check if the correction ribbon is placed good.behind the correctable ribbon.

Royal alpha 600 won't type. New ribbon, all looks fine. No type at all.


There is a grey lever on the right side of the carriage that strikes the printwheel hammer. It always breaks. You can purchase this part for a few bucks and install it yourself. I have a few of them. Verify if it is definitely cracked and I can sell you one for $ 13.00 including shipping.

Types a few characters then stops typing and just beeps...


Perhaps you have the R. margin set at that point. Try resetting it at the R. end.
