Question about Royal PowerWriter Typewriter

1 Answer

My Dad has a Royal TA memory typewriter. He tells me it is typing every other letter. It's not double spacing his letters..it's skipping every other letter. He also says it's making a clickity clack sound like it does when it's double-striking.

Olympia Startype 3 occasionally types double vertical line and spacing is changing between letters


Check the printwheel for any broken or bent spokes. vertical lines means the wheel is between letters so either a problem with printwheel or something preventing wheel from turning normally.

Sometimes my typewriter advances too much between letters.


The escapement might need adjustment. Try striking the key briskly and not holding it down so it double types leaving a space.

TA Royal 503 typewriter with a print wheel that is not aligned


Hi - there a many reasons why this happens. Try these first. Replace the ribbon. This might have become tight (faulty) and make this happen. Next clean the main rod that the carriage goes back and forth on, it sometimes get very sticky. Then place a couple of drips of oil on. This should work wonders? Best John ex OEM trained mechanic
