Could be the printhead is at the right margin. But, if you hit the return key and nothing happins, it could be a bad board, power supply or transport motor. When you turn the machine on, does the printhead move all the way to the left, spin the printwheel and move to a set position?

I agree with JUSTOLDJIM. I recently found a 3L near the dumpster at my townhome. I took it in a looked at it. There is a black and white ribbon used for typing and erasure of ink.

As far as the TAB goes, I haven't used them yet.
