Make sure ribbon and corr. tape are installed correctly
" " nothing is interfering with the free rotation of the printwheel
check to make sure the "pitch" selection matches the printwheel
if these seem ok seek a repair shop

Typewriter types different letters and symbols when pressing ALL the keys to type. How do I reset it to the original setting?


The pitch selector switch on the L. side of the keyboard should be in 10 or 12 not PS. Also press down on it and slide it a few times they do get dirty.

Sounds like a bad keyboard or a spill in the keyboard.

Be sure the pitch selection is correct. If it is set to PS when using a 10,12 or 15 pitch wheel it will select incorrect letters.

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!
