The power comes on. There's a humming noise but nothing works. The display is interuppted dark lines. It quit mid typing. What's wrong?

Need to get more information. Turn off the machine and wait 5 seconds and then turn it back on. Do any of the lights on the right side of the keyboard come on and or blink? Does the carriage move at all or does the display have anything showing or are there just dark lines? Does the machine beep and if so, how many times? The answers to these questions will help diagnose the problem(s).

Press down firmly on both ends of the platen (black rubber roll) it should snap into place, if it comes back out one of the latches is broken and will need replaced.

The book says turn the T/W off wait 30 seconds and restart, if condition returns call for service. However you might try removing the batteries and unplugging the machine waiting a few minutes and restarting. CAUTION ALL THE MEMORY WILL BE LOST!
