There are a few possibilities, first check to see if it is in the language mode, light on the rt. side code "L" will get you out of it. If that is OK the keyboard may be selecting the wrong keyboard. Press and hold code key, press and release the "L" key, type 001, release the code key. If this solves the problem. check the keyboard connectors. If they seem to be fully plugged in you will need a keyboard.

No, the printwheels are the same for all Wheelwriters. Make sure the letters face the roller when you put it in (pull the print hammer assy back and check for paper clips, ribbon pieces, etc. first).

Check the "Pitch" selector slide switch on the lhs of the keyboard... it should be on 10, 12 etc position to match the printwheel... NOT in the PS position.

Try pushing down on both ends of the black platen roller. Sometimes one of the black clips on the end of the roller can break causing one end of the roller to lift up, giving half letters.The clip on the right side can be replaced but the left side clip can not so roller would have to be replaced.
