You probably have a keyboard problem. With the T/W turned on tap the space up key and the micro up & down keys if they space without pressing them you may need a keyboard. If you find the offending key try popping off the key top this may get you by for a while.

Roller


If nothing happens no carrier movementor paper feed you probably have a bad keyboard.
If the carrier moves but no feed the index motot may need to be lubed.
If the roll moves but the paper dosen't you may have debris on the paper tray or bad lower fed rolls.

How do I go to the next line on a type writer?


Some ideas; Ifthis a manual the paper should advance when returning the carriage with the bikg lever. If it is electric it should feed on return
The feed pawl on the L.end of the carriage gum up try a little WD40 on it.

WHEN I TYPE SOME THING AND HIT THE SPACE BAR THE RETURN BAR IT TYPE ON THE SAME LINE AND EVERY THING IS IN ONE .


If the paper will move up with the platen knob the paper feed motor probably has a broken plastic gear. The gear and motor are sold as one 35.00.

When I am typing, the paper does not roll evenly. One side is lower than the other. I therefore cannot type on a straight line. What do I do please?


There is something stuck in the rollers. Maybe small stickly paper or clip. You might be lucky enough to see the front feeds and remove. If it the back ones you will need to remove the roller platen to get access. If nothing stuck make sure upon placing the roller back that the roller tray is loaceted each side on its pivits.

We have a brothers GX-6750 that wont feed paper, wheel just spins.


If the Platen is moving the paper release lever is in the wrong position, if the platen isn't moving the paper feed motor will have to be replaced.

Haven't used it in years - XD5250 - it still works great - however the paper is loose - any way of tightening it up?


thats in the platen(the big roller) just check the small (feed roller) roller at the back of the type guide, or (the paper finger) in the big roller connected to type guide 3inch on the left 3inch on the right thats the part to tighten your paper

Smith Corona 235 DLE doesn't advance


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.
