Hello- If I know this site was out there I would have posted much sooner. SCM Word Smith 250....the problem was with a defective striker plate. The manufacturing facility in China was having some issues. Here in the USA all of the larger office suppliers stopped selling the machines ( companies like Azerty, United Stationers, Arlington, Carolina Wholesale, Quill, Viking Office Products, etc). I was told Smith Corona would fix your machine for free and will even pay you for the shipping expense you may incur.

The markes you see is the print hammer hitting the ribbon & paper. remove the ribbon & print wheel. look close at the print wheel when out of the machine if there are any spaces betwen the spokes a letter has broken off and you need a new print wheel, If just bent slowly strten them out. reinstall wheel & ribbon try it.

Replacing wheel with the letters & numbers


Replace with letters facing foreward (towards paper).
If there is no plastic printwheel lever then,
Push the print hammer shroud gently foreward until it "clicks".

The print head might have accummulated a lot of paper bits you need to clear them with a needle or just submerge the tip in petrol or ether. Caution do not submerge if its made of plastic.

Types wrong Characters


Does it always type the same wrong letter ie a always prints u or w ? if so the print wheel drive gear is out of position. if not and it get random letters some thing may be interfering with the wheel rotation.
