Find the problem, some linkage is sticking and you have to trace it through. Spray with WD40, then when working spray with other light oil, cause WD40 does not stay. Most likely the carriage return release . Take bottom off and watch what it hits on the left side, Also the tab button locked down will do this.

Remove print wheel...clean with soapy water

Most likely bad printwheel, spokes may be catching on the ribbon and not going to home position. Try a new wheel, and or make sure carrier is returning to home position every time. make with white out the top of the print wheel spoke at home position and make sure it always comes back to that spot when you turn machine on and off and on. This will tell you if the machine is starting in the same place every time.

What happens, any noise, etc. some times the chrome rail
inside the machine gets sticky and will not let the carrier move. Also if you hit the carriage return key and nothing happens, my be bad keys or keyboard...
