Accidentally set wrong 'language' code.

I have an Olympia Startype 3 typewriter and have accidentally set a code causing everything I type to be something else, and I cannot find a language key to change it back.

    Too funny. I had seen others comments saying it shouldn't be on PS, and mine wasn't. It was on 12, but either way, that fixed it. Thanks so much!!

Check the bottom left slider switch is not on PS, should be on 10 or 15.

Olympia Startype 3 occasionally types double vertical line and spacing is changing between letters


Check the printwheel for any broken or bent spokes. vertical lines means the wheel is between letters so either a problem with printwheel or something preventing wheel from turning normally.

Code


Look for a key with a coloured symbol,ie,indicating "keyboard 1",or something similar. Hold the code key down and at the same time press your selected key. Order should be restored. If not,look up an Olympia dealer and they will help you over the phone. One thing for sure ,you have inadvertely selected a 2nd or 3rd keyboard setting to accommodate an other daisy-wheel/language. Good luck!

Does it make a grunting noise? If so, it needs a couple drops of oil on the main support shaft. Also check the indent setting. You need to use the code key to activate or deactivate the indent.
