The belt ( usually a flat belt) is stretched, broken or needs cleaned. You can clean it with denatured alcohol and a cotton swab. Don 't have the unit on while doing this. After you clean the belt, turn it on. Might have to clean it a couple of times.
Hope this helps,

How do I fix the Royal Academy Electric Typewriter 1980's, when I have the power on, it works, but the keys doesn't work at all.


You may have a broken belt. They are no longer made but if you have a good hardware store you can get a long "O" ring and use it as a replacement.

I have an old school "Royal Quiet Deluxe" typewriter; the carriage will not move when the letter keys are pressed or when the space bar is pressed but will move to back space or to slide the carriage back...


If there is tension on the carriage when you push it to the right, the spring is not broke or the cord..then the problem would be in the escapement area..you would need a repairman to do this. if the carriage is loose, no tension then the spring is either broke or the cord is off or broke.
Either way not something easy....
