If this is a WW10 II using the code and Q will increase the impression. If this dosen't help some WD40 on the front of the print solenoid may help.

My typewritter wont impress even on hardest impression setting. I think the Ribbon might not be turning eventhough it looks like it is.


If it sounds like it is hitting the paper puy in a multi part form if the copy is OK then you have a ribbon problem, put in a new ribbon.
If there is no print on copy be sure the print wheel is properly latched in place.

When typing only upper half of letter or number shows up on the page.


Try typing on a miltipart form. If the carbons are good the problem is the ribbon. Not lifting, folded,
very old or the correction tape is in the way. If the copies are the same then be sure the platen is seated fully in the side frames.

The typewriter doesn't completely print the whole letter, only sometimes and sporadic and not all letters are affected. Cleaned platen, and checked print wheel . All letters seem to be raised. What could...


Fiest put in a milti part form and try it if the copies are good you have a ribbon problem.
Try it without the correction tape. Look at the ribbon to see if it has folds in it or the letters are overstriking on the ribbon

The L/O should be dry non tacky.

Put in a multi part form and type if the carbons come out OK the the ribbon isn't lifting, Wiggle the big black gear on the R. side of the carrier back and forth. They do get tooth for tooth when they get old. If the print on the copies id bad or not there you need a print solenoid cap. We sell them for 20,00 including instructiond and shipping.

My Wheelwriter 5 types faded and incomplete letters. We changed to a new ribbon, but problem is still there. Seems the pressure is not hard enough.


The solenoid for the hammer is probably sticky or the pad is worn.
This requires disassembly for cleaning, lube or replacing the pad.

Only a portion of the letters are printing on the paper.


Sounds like the platen has worked loose. press down firmly on both ends of the platen (black rubber rol) it should snap back into place.

Try typing on a mulipart form. If it types on the copies and not the orinonal the ribbon is the problem. If it dosen't type on the copies then the plastic cap on the print solenoid is broken.

We sell the cap with installation instructions for 20.00 includes shipping.

Only part of the character/letter is showing


make sure the ribbon is latched into place (should lock down) also check on the ribbon itself to make sure the print is in the middle of the ribbon and not on the very bottom, if the ribbon is locked down and types of the bottom of the ribbon, it is out of adjustment. if the ribbon looks ok, move the paper scale (the plastic piece on top of the platen) up out of the way, then push down sharply on the platen. if it moves down and clickes into place, it should work OK.

Check to see if the ribbon is lifting up, if not there is a black gear on the right side of the printer wiggle it back and forth until it will move. If it is lifting put a multi part form a nd see if it prints on the copies if not the plastic on the print solinoid is probably broken they are available but a bit trigky to install.

Poor quality impression


I am supprised your repairman couldnt fix this, either the hammer is binding or the V 1 resistor on the logic board needs adjusted I do this repair in my shop quite often.
