Wordsmith 100 Wrong character typed.

When I press any given key on my Smith Corona Wordsmith 100, it types the wrong character. For instance, when I press "H" it types "o," when I press "B" it prints "h," when I type "A" it types "u." What could be wrong with it. Once the problem started occurring, I tried removing the Daisy Wheel and then putting it back in, which didn't work. Re-initializing the typewriter by pressing "CODE" + "="

When I type some of the letters are appearing with double lines. what is wrong?


Hi;

If you are getting to small vertical lines instead of the character then the printwheel might be bad. All the spokes on the printwheel should be evenly spaced and not bent or deformed.

Typing verticle lines instead of character


It sounds like the spokes on the P/W are damaged or bent, you can try straightening them or put in a new printwheel.
