Is the key stuck in the down position? If you pull the key off you should see a spring underneath. Maybe out of position or damaged.

Carriage return stuck on left side when powering on


The first thing to try is to lubricate the silver rail that the carriage rides on. A few drops of a light oil ( sewing machine oil ) may take care of the problem. Turn machine off, apply oil and move carriage by hand back and forth. Turn back on and see if this took care of it.

The return is stuck on 80 on the guide. I cannot


Turn the T/W off and slide the carrier back and forth. If it goes to the left then you have the L. margin set at 80.

Return to the margin, press and release the margin release key, backspace to the desired location, press the L. margin key.

try turning the machine off put a SMALL amount of oil on the large round rod running across the typewriter manually push the print head left and right a few times to see if it will loosen up. The problem is usually caused be drying oil you may consider having it serviced by a pro.
