Your description is a little vague, does it type letters and freeze when you hit the space bar or or just stop on all keys?

My elderly neighbour has a sticky label stuck behind the paper roller and I don't seem to be able to life up the front of the typewriter to be able to clear it.

Depending on the typewriter model, most all have release points located on either end of the roller bar. Locate these, push forward or backward, release roller bar and lift the bar out. This would be the preferred solution, as it would make removing the sticky note far easier. These release points will look like small levers and should have directional arrows visible to indicate which directions they should be pushed to release the bar. If you cannot remove the roller bar, I suggest standing over the typewriter and use a pair of tweezers to remove the sticky note. It may take some patience, and may tear, but eventually it should be able to be removed,even if it is bit by bit. Also, with each portion removed, turn the roller bar to make the remaining part of the note more visible. Good luck.

The Swintec 7040 typewriter goes a few inches to the right and stops. How do I unlock?

My best guess is that you have the R. margin set there. Go to the stopping point, press but don't hold the MAR REL key, spce to desired location, press R. mar key.

My lexmark typewriter space bar will not work and the phrase light is stuck on

The phrase light is also the single space. If only the space bar doesn't workyou may have a bad keyboard or something under the space bar that is in the way.

I have a IBM Correcting Selectric II and I'm having trouble clearing out the margins. Can you help?

space to the right side of the machine, hold down the tab clear key and hit return.

If the carriage stops partway back, one of the tab stops has rotated too far on the tab bar.

remove the platen and paper pan, go to the stuck stop, rotate it to the rear of the machine to line up with the other tabs

Space bar

If the bar works when you hit right in the middle try reinstalling the bar the metal rod must go under the tabs on the keyboard, if it won't at all you probably need a keyboard.
