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!

After typing first line, hit the return key. The carriage would not return to the far left margin...it only moved 12 or so spaces to the left.


The carrier slides on a silver shaft that is about 1/2" thick spray some WD40 on the shaft, if that doesn't do it you have to get some on the carrier motor bearings located under the case in the R. rear corner.

Dpu 414 stacks lines


Set SWDIP switch 1, switch number 4 to ON. That switch controls whether when you get a CR (Carriage Return), you get just that carriage return or a CR-LF (carriage return + line feed). You need the latter. Setting the switch to ON will accomplish that. Have a good day.

IBM Wheelwriter 6781 won't perform a full carriage


Spray some WD40 on the silver shaft that the carrier slides on. If this doesn't work Spray some on the carrier motor bearings, located under the case R. rear corner. You can access the front one from 9inside the rear you will have to fish the straw thru the case.

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)
