Question about Royal Satellite 40 Typewriter
My typewriter became unplugged while I was vacuuming. When I plugged it back in, turned it on and typed, it typed the wrong letters. 'E' prints as 'h', 'L' prints as ';' or something. How do I fix this? Thanks! Sue
Ed, you're a genius. I reset the wheel after taking the correction tape out and it didn't change anything. But the comment about trying the different CODE key combos indirectly led to the solution. I started setting and resetting every CODE key combo and something fixed it! Thanks so much! I had also reset the pica, etc. switches on the left, so not sure if that played into it. Something somehow fixed it and I wouldn't have tried it if you hadn't mentioned the KBI, II, III keys. THANKS!! Sue

The printwheel has lost it's home position. Release the lever holding the printwheel, remove it and re-install it. Push the lever toward the platen to lock it in. Turn the typewriter on. The printwheel should spin, the carriage should move to the left and the come back to the left margin. You should be OK after that. Let me know if it helps or not Ed
