If the 1, 2, and 3 line space keys are flashing in order, you need to change the two AA batteries that are located inside your typewriter.

electric typwriters are 'old' - in general - and old generation completely. they went out of style (and use) as computers and printers became inexpensive and ubiquituous.

now you know why it was sold. it was defective and there are no parts available since it is likely more than 20 years old.

After typing first line, hit the return key. The carriage would not return to the far left 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.

Be sure the print wheel is properly installed and that there is no debris in the P/W area. otherwise you'll need a tech.
