There are a few things that may be the issue. You may need to reset the ribbon, there may be loose wires, a bad switch, the cord may need to be replaced, or it has a faulty power supply. If the machine hasn't been cleaned in awhile, when you have the cover off, you may want to use contact cleaner for the switch and all connections.
Here's the manual for your machine, which may help also:

Hope this helps! Good luck!

This sounds like a classic sticky broken spring clutch and also needing a re-lube , where over time parts get build up and dirty , needing a cleaning . There is typewriter oil/cleaner for your machine. These things hinder the power to your machine. www.youtube.com/watch?v=tcvA1cPpQvc - www.youtube.com/watch?v=G0bPCAK8tUo
