Does the platen move or does the paper not advance? Check the paper release lever to make sure the feed wheels are snapped in place. If the platen does not move something in the paper feed motor area.

Why does paper not advance to next line when carriage returns?


There might be a setting for how many lines it moves when the carriage gets to the end. It is mechanical so you'll see it!

I have a Smith Cornona Electra XT. It still turns on, but when I do turn it on, the carriage automatically goes back and forth non-stop and it's like you arre holding the return button down conti


Find the problem, some linkage is sticking and you have to trace it through. Spray with WD40, then when working spray with other light oil, cause WD40 does not stay. Most likely the carriage return release . Take bottom off and watch what it hits on the left side, Also the tab button locked down will do this.

Hitting Return just brings the carriage back to the start of the same line and doesn't insert a line break on a smith-corona


Assuming this is a mechanical machine with elect5ric motor:
Verify the line space selector is not set on 0. (just inside LH platen knob)
Check that the LH platen knob does no have a push lever sticking out to the left.
Try placing a few drops of oil at the left portion of the platen, just left of the metal teeth (the linespace pawl may be jammed and not restoring to rest position)
