Sounds more like the keyboard is going bad. If the printwheel was working fine before, replacing it won't fix this kind of problem.
Also check to see if the light besides " Lang", on the right of the keyboard is lit. If it is hold down the CODE key and hit the key with Lang printed on it. I think its the "L" key.
Another possibility is the keyboard is going bad.

How do I chance the names on an NEC phone


NAME DISPLAY
NOTE: Display Dterm
A name with up to 16 characters can be entered to display the name on
other Dterm telephones when making a call.
• Press Speaker key, Receive dial tone.
• Dial the Name Assignment access code and receive special dial tone.
• Using the keypad, depress the key with the desired letter to display the
first letter on the key. The

and periods.
• When the desired letter is displayed, depression of the Transfer key will
change the letter to a lower case letter (default is upper case). Depress
the Hold key to enter that letter and advance to the next entry.
• Repeat the previous two steps until the desired name is displayed and
entered

Typewriter keys only print half a letter


In general, there are two possible causes for this symptom. 1. The ribbon is not fully in front of the typeface at impact. 2. The typeface is not in the proper position at impact. Depending on the model of typewriter there can be different causes for these two conditions, for instance, on a manual typewriter, that has a manual shift key, it is possible that the segment which travels up and down when depressing the shift, is not in the proper position, thus , when the typeface contacts the paper, the curvature of the typeface does not match the curvature of the platen. This can cause the top or the bottom of letters not to print. Likewise on an IBM Wheelwriter, it is possible for the platen itself to be loose which can cause just the top of letters to print. Observe the ribbon lift position and installation. Check the hammer, printwheel, platen,
