My typewriter carriage doesn't move along as I type.

How do I get my typewriter (Royal Quiet De Luxe) to stop typing letters on top of each other? It works fine when I manually hold the carriage in place with one hand and type with the other, but when I don't do this, the carriage stays in one spot and types letters on top of each other. I thought it had something to do with the drawband but I *think* I have hooked it in the right place and there's still no change. What now?

Does the carriage move if you depress the tab key or space bar? Is there any pull on the draw band. Maybe the main spring is broken.

The peice of my typewriter that is supposed to move the paper tothe left as you type doesnt move?

It's either in the carriage lock position, just check if it's locked in place.
The other reason may be that the return spring has broken. Easy to replace & is repairable sometimes.

I have an old school "Royal Quiet Deluxe" typewriter; the carriage will not move when the letter keys are pressed or when the space bar is pressed but will move to back space or to slide the carriage back...

If there is tension on the carriage when you push it to the right, the spring is not broke or the cord..then the problem would be in the escapement area..you would need a repairman to do this. if the carriage is loose, no tension then the spring is either broke or the cord is off or broke.
Either way not something easy....

Barrel does not move along and only prints caps!

U HAVE NOT UNLOCKED THE CARRIAGE. LOOK AT THE VERY ENDS OF THE CARRIAGE AND U WILL FIND A LOCK THAT HAS TO BE REALEASED, OR THE LOCK COULD BE COMBINED WITH THE PAPER LINE SPACE SELECTOR.
