Does the platen move or does the paper not advance? Check the paper release lever to make sure the feed wheels are snapped in place. If the platen does not move something in the paper feed motor area.

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.

Why does paper not advance to next line when carriage returns?


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!
