Ok,there could be two possibilities ,1, The daisy wheel may not be seated in properly. Of course I assume that the print side of the daisy wheel is facing the platen and that when the typewriter is switched on the print unit makes its customary re-setting motion and that the daisy wheel spins around at the same time. if this does not happen make sure that the lock-in lever for the daisy wheel is pushed home.. I am sure that you do all these elementary things so the only other possibility is the the hammer seleniod is not fully functioning and would have to be re-placed....Good luck!

Geno111 doesn't know what he's talking about. Look closely at your correction tape once it has passed the daisy wheel. Does it looked roughed up a little? I just had this same error and discovered that my daisy wheel was hitting my tape when spinning and not allowing it to jump characters like it needed to. I simply put a little double sided tape on the daisy wheel cover between it and the metal tab that holds the ribbon at a certain distance, to increase the space the daisy wheel has to spin. It seems to have worked so far. If anyone has a permanent solution, or answer as to how it spins wobbly, I'd love to hear it.

If it is only the capital (E) and not the lower case (e),
remove the daisywheel (print wheel) and inspect it for damage. Don't worry
about the letters being out of order the machine knows what order they are. You
will likely see one spoke broken off or bent to one side. If so replace the daisywheel.
If both E & e are malfunctioning, the problem is that the
keyboard is malfunctioning. The keyboard is not hard to repair, but it takes
well over an hour to train someone how to disassemble and put it back together again,
so I cannot explain it here. Besides you will (likely) need a conductive pad to
replace the pad under the E/e key.
For your sake I hope it a damaged daisywheel. Best of luck!

BACKGROUND - When you turn on the machine, close the top cover, or press [Code]+[Reset} (on some models) the print head
moves to the side, the daisywheel spins, and the ribbon jumps up and down, that
is the machine resetting its self.
If a reset does not work
the reset tab may be out of alignment. If a reset does not correctly reset the
daisywheel, I would
CAUSES - This reset tab most often gets out of alignment by a child playing with the machine, or when a foreign object is in the machine when the print head is moving.
