The letters when typed on paper are only partially there, I took the wheel out and put it back in but now it will not spin correctly. Any suggestions? I have replaced the ribbon and that did not make a difference.

Hammer sticking and typing incorrect letters (and or skipping letters): 1) make sure daisy wheel installed correctly. 2) hold down CODE key & Q (RESET) to reset wheel...if still not corrected 3) WD40 the hammer at the base & joints where moving parts are, keep typing until oil seeps in (this last one fixed it for me)
Typing light and inconsistant-top part of letter okay but bottom too light or not there: to left of hammer (at base) are 2 screws, I losened them and adjusted hammer to different forward and backward spots..finally found the ideal location where full letter printed and had the correct force it needed to print correctly.
You have to loosen the screw on each side of the carriage that holds the silver guide and move it away from the font wheel. The factory adjustment is to put in 2 pieces of paper and adjust to be snug. Take out the paper and it should reset properly.
the mark you are seeing is the print hammer hitting the paper. remove the ribbon. corr. tape & print wheel. turn on the typewriter. close cover let it home it's self. open cover put in print wheel. close cover let it nome. put in ribbon close cover. try typing if marks are still ther. you will need a new print wheel. if working then put in corr. tape or if you are better at spelling then me you will not need it
Sounds like the wheel is out of alignment. I had this problem with the one I recently purchased for my daughter. Release the tension on the ribbon and head. Pull the wheel cartridge out and line up the letters. Put the wheel back and reapply tension. Repeat until it is aligned. Took me a couple tries to get it working, but its working and seems to be stable.
Check the way the correct tape is installed. I have seen people twist them around the guide backwards and the correction material is facing away from the paper. Also can you see the correction tape lifting up?
