Hello, . didn't see if you'd gotten other answers to your question. Quick history, worked on those when they were new. If your hitting a letter and getting more than one space you have a sticky escapement pawl. What this is, is a small device that makes out of the escapement track when a letter is typed. A older machine like this may have more than one problem. If it's been sitting for a Long time little things may pop up once in a while. Quick temp.fix. with the typewriter in fRont of you, tip it up so it's sitting on the back and you can see all the key levers. When you see what looks like a saw blade on the part that moves (the carriage), center the carriage, with your eyes look into the very bottom, with machine still on its back and hit a few keys you should see some small parts moving out trying too. Lightly spray with a lubricating penetrating oil. This will loosen and lube, but this is temporary unless you want to pay for an overhaul. Lots of words, hope it helps if not let me know, maybe I can try to draw something up.

When adding names to phonebook, how do I type a space? And how do I delete an incorrect letter or number?


It is customary to separate different parts of a phone number with a space but that is for human recognition only. Some phonebooks allow a space so it looks right to us even though it serves no purpose when dialling the number. A lot of phonebooks do not allow a space and force people to type the number as it will be seen by the phone software.

The space when typing names and the delete key vary between the make and type of phone. My phone uses the zero (0) key as a space bar. If a zero is required the key is kept depressed for a second longer. My phone has a dedicated "clear" key but lots of phones use the "back" key for delete.

My advice is to keep playing around and reach for the instruction manual if all else fails.

I cannot log in after the welcome screen is finished... where it requires user name.... when i start to type alpha-numeric keys it does not show any letters or numbers... only space bar and back space are...


If using windows vista or 7, at the welcome screen in which one must log in, there is a small icon at the lower right corner. This will bring up a menu (and may start reading the menu aloud). On this menu there is an option to type without the keyboard, which enables the on screen keyboard. Try using this to log in.

If the issue is present even with the on screen keyboard, the issue lies with windows itself. Try restoring; directions to do this ca easily be found by doing a Google search for windows system restore.

How to use the letters on iphone keypad


Hi, initially you might be having issues with using keypad on iPhone, but as you practice, you will get a lot better at it. Initially, try using the keypad with your index finger, and do that for atleast one week, before jumping into using both the hands.

Also, turn on your dictionary, so that even if you type wrong, auto correct will help you get the words right, without having to erase and retype. If the guessed word is not what you want, click on the 'x' on that word, so the word doesnt change to the suggested one.

If you are still having issues, use the landscape mode which didvides the keys into broader space, and the typing gets lot easier. There are few apps, on iTunes store, for free, whihc you can download (for ex: easy email free), so that, even for email, you can type in landscape mode.

Post back if you have any more questions.
