Stuck eldorado key in DTS ignition now car won't start


Make sure your steering wheel isn't locked. Sometimes a key won't turn until you jiggle the wheel while trying to turn the key.

Smith corona electra 110 Strike the key, won't work.


If it does nothing at all the pawls that engage the drive shaft may be gummy a little WD40 if it makes sounds like something is happening the connecting wire to the type bar is probably unhooked. You can swap it with a rarly used key and sometimes get away with it.

Hi, you are correct, the key will be sheered. Remove the top shroud and flywheel nut, then while pulling upwards on the flywheel have someone strike downwards on the crankshaft with a hammer and brass drift. Do not use a steel drift as it will damage the crankshaft. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

When I put the key in and hold the steering wheel it won't unlock and my key won't turn


the steering wheel has a locking devise released by the key when starting, at times the wheel is turned in a way that keeps pressure on the lock that makes turning the key harder, this is the same in most cars, so a little jiggle of the wheel will make turning the key much easier, please take a moment to rate my reply Good Luck

Wheelwriter 6 typewriter hammer no longer strikes


It is pretty common for the pad on the solenoid to strike the keys wears out, and for the batteries to be dead for the memory. Your machine probably needs a good cleaning, oiling, and a new pad for the striker. about $100.00 in the shop.

Cannot get daisy wheel to type correct letters


Turn oFF the typewriter, take the ribbon out.....use the lever on top to release and remove the print wheel cartridge. Lightly rotate it to see if it will move and reinsert the cartridge. snap it back into place.
Turn on the machine, the typewriter should move the carrier to the left and reset the printwheel....if it is snapped back properly.
