The print head might have accummulated a lot of paper bits you need to clear them with a needle or just submerge the tip in petrol or ether. Caution do not submerge if its made of plastic.

There might be a setting for how many lines it moves when the carriage gets to the end. It is mechanical so you'll see it!

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.

Make sure the carriage lock switch isn't on (presuming it has one). A carriage lock switch prevents the carriage moving when in transit (say, inside its case). These switches are usually located on the right hand side of the carriage, slightly underneath.
