Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Our church has the above typewriter. I don't know how old it is. But I want to use it in the church library. When I turn it on, it seems fine. But whenever and whatever button I hit, it beeps without typing. Neither the index nor the reverse index works. It will not type or do anything. I have tried to move the print wheel by hitting the margin release, but no go. I have tried everything I can think of to make it work. There doesn't seem to be any batteries to be replaced. The manual does not mention batteries or this problem.
Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated!
You didn't say what the model is. First be sure the print wheel is properly installed, then turn off the T/W and see if the carrier will move back and forth easily, if not try a little light oil on the shaft that runs thru the carrier (WD40 works well).
