Will the carrier move yo the rt. with power off ? Try a little WD40 on the silver shaft that runs thru the carrier. Look for foreign objects and debris inside the t/w.

Brother ml 500 memory typriter how do i move margin to right


Use your space bar to move carrier to desired location, hold down Alt key button on bottom left (next to space bar) and press the number 5 numeric key on top row. That should set your right margin.

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.

Print head moves left and stays horrible noise


The problem is either something is interfering with the carrier movement OR the carrier homing sensor is broken/defective. First, turn off the power and manually move the carrier to the right side frame, check for foreign objects in the machine (pens, pushpins, paper clips etc.). Put some oil (10 weight) on a cloth and clean the chrome shaft that the carrier travels on.(by the rubber cogged belt). This is a common problem. If the sensor itself is the problem, take to a repair shop.(not common)

IBM Wheelwriter 5 nonresponsive, line spacing lights flashing


A lot of possibilities Which lights, beeps, how many? Check for debris in and around the printwheel, look for any obstructions under the carrier, put a few drops of oil on the silver shaft the carrier ride on.

Good Luck

Lights blink and machine beeps


Check the flat connector that goes to the indicator lights the edge of the keyboard sometimes wears into itand causes a reset sequence.
