Some typewriters have a carriage lock on the carriage to lock it in the center position, or it may have typet to the right margin which causes a typebar lock to activate untill you da a carriage return to the left side of the paper.

How do I go to the next line on a type writer?


Some ideas; Ifthis a manual the paper should advance when returning the carriage with the bikg lever. If it is electric it should feed on return
The feed pawl on the L.end of the carriage gum up try a little WD40 on it.

My typwriter loose the letter printer. no words can print even do the theirs a ribbon.


It's very hard to understand your question. Try printing on a multipart form if it prints on the copies OK the problem is the ribbon, if it prins bad or not at all be sure the printwheel is properly installed.
Is the ribbon feeding and lifting?

My Sears electric typewriter "scholar w/


could be the carraige release button on the carraige is stuck down (pull it back up). Otherwise the mach. is stuck in "tab" mode or the escapement (the mechanism that hold the carraige in place and lets it advance 1 space at a time) is FUBAR'ed, in eithor case it would need professional help.

The flywheel from my brother ml300 typwriter came off and i don't know how to put it back on


I assume by "flywheel", you are referring to the "printwheel" which is removable from the typewriter by unlatching the print hammer mechanism by pulling the black lever on the right side of the print hammer towards the front of the machine. To install the printwheel, drop the printwheel in its cartridge with the letters facing the paper, then push the print hammer assembly towards the paper to the latched position. Turn on machine, and the printwheel will spin and "home". If printwheel homing is not correct, repeat above procedure with slightly more pressure when latching the printwheel. (The printwheel must latch on to its drive spindle securely). Good Luck

You didn't say what the model is. First be sure the print wheel is properly installed, then turn off the T/W and see if the carrier will move back and forth easily, if not try a little light oil on the shaft that runs thru the carrier (WD40 works well).

Will not type


If the 1, 2, and 3 line space keys are flashing in order, you need to change the two AA batteries that are located inside your typewriter.
