Resetting the margins on a manual typewriter.

I can't be for sure if these are auto set margins, but it sounds like they might be. If they are, first move the carriage as far to the right as you can. Hold the Left Margin Set (not Margin Release) lever as you move the carriage all the way to the left. Release the Margin Set Button or Lever. Now hold the Right Margin Set Button or Lever (not the Margin Release), and move the carriage all the way to the right while holding the Margin Set. Once the carriage is all the way to the right, release the Margin Set. Move the carriage to the place you want to set your left margin. Hit the Left Margin Set and then release. Move the carriage to where you want to set the right margin. Hit the Right Margin Set and release it. It gets confusing, but Margin Release does not set margins. Its sole purpose is only to bypass the margins. Hope this helps.

A string broke, space bar and platen does not

The tab cord is probably what broke. If it a string some 50# fish line will probably work.

L.C. Smith & Bros. typewriter No. 5 Margin setting

Make sure the carriage lock switch isn't on (presuming it has one). A carriage lock switch prevents the carriage moving when in transit (say, inside its case). These switches are usually located on the right hand side of the carriage, slightly underneath.

I have a circa 1940's-50's Royal Desktop

You have the ribbon on wrong. The ribbon dosen't feed off the spool but take up onto the spool. install the ribbon so that the moving spool is taking up the ribbon.

I can only type a few inches into a sentence

At the top of the typewriter behind the platen (the big black rubber roller you roll the paper into) there is a scale with two push buttons on it. The buttons are the margins. The button on the right is the one stopping you. Push it down and slide it to the right to set your new stopping place...or all the way to the right to not have any margin at all.

Royal Orca 9512X Business Shredder printed circuit board part?

This is the only place that says it might? https://www.pacparts.com/library/model.cfm?mfg=Royal&model_id=ORCA%209512X&action=list_part&back=0 ShredderParts.com is the go-to place, but they don't keep parts. https://www.google.com/search?q=Royal+orca+9512x+parts Your best bet is probably going to be to take the circuit board to an electronics technician and ask them to test and replace components that have failed. ..

What's a PCB on a Royal 1212X shredder? And how do I know the PCB is the problem?

A pcb is a printed circuit board. You can visually check it for very small burn spots or tiny melted disconnections, or swollen or burst capacitors; but any repairs of the PCB are risky because of the interdependencies of any circuitry. If you've already checked the mechanical workings, you might try to find a replacement PCB if you're convinced that's the problem. They're often not even sold, so a whole new unit would be required. Welcome to the wonderful world of planned obsolescence.

My Royal Alpha 9170 is feeding to quickly, resulting in a paper and ribbon jam and resulting in a printer error.

hi
  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved
