Drppping is not a cood thing. That said the carrier (print head) may be disloged from the guide over the silver shaft nearest the front of thr T/W or the case may be broken and inter- fering with the printer. If it is disloged you should be able to pop it back into place when in the center.

Carriage return stuck on left side when powering on


The first thing to try is to lubricate the silver rail that the carriage rides on. A few drops of a light oil ( sewing machine oil ) may take care of the problem. Turn machine off, apply oil and move carriage by hand back and forth. Turn back on and see if this took care of it.

What can I do about a carriage that shudders when I turn the machine on but it does not move freely. I have a SC 110 electric typewriter


Usually it is because of some obstruction, or the main shaft is gummed up.

Open the cover to check if there are no foreign objects lying in the way of the carriage.
Also, part of the packaging included a rubber sleeve that stopped the carriage from sliding around during shipment. It may be still there, who knows?

You may also try a few drops of oil, preferably the sewing machine type.

If you turn the machine OFF, can you manually slide the carriage back and forth?

Typewriter problem


IF THE CARRIAGE IS NOT MOVING LEFT OR RIGHT, CAN YOU PUSH THE CARRIAGE TO THE RIGHT OR LEFT??? OR IS IT COMPLETELY STUCK. YOU CAN TRY CLEANING THE SILVER SHAFT THE CARRIAGE SLIDES ON AND LUBRICATING THE SHAFT WITH A LIGHTWEIGHT OIL, WHEN YOU PRESS THE KEYS DO THEY WORK.???

Olivetti Lettera 32 typwritter carriage doesn't move


If the locking lever is off, then the carriage is bound, or one of the tabs is hung, try releasing all the tabs, pushing the space bar or the tab key while gently moving the carriage.
Try all of the function like shift while gently pushing on the carriage always to the right..
also check the that the margins are not locked.
This could be a lot of different things...
