Remove the platen by squeezing the plastic lathes at both ends.
Clean it with mineral spirits and fine sand paper.

Perhaps the paper tray is not seated properly or even in backwards, check that also the black latches do crack and not properly latch, if so you may need a new platen.

Could be many things. Take off the case and look for parer clips, staples or other debris on or under the PC board or in the power supply.

Check in the area where the printwheel is installed for paper or other debris. If it does the same thing with the printwheel out then it is probably a printwheel sensor.

Make sure both tabs on the rear of the cartridge are in their respective slots. If that does not work, try pushing down on the black platen roller on both ends. If one side is not locked in place, you will get half letters.

If it is only typing the top half of the letters the platen may not be fully seated in the side frames, push down firmly on both ends of the platen it should snap into place.

It sounds like the Platen roller has popped up out of place on one side. Try pushing down on the black rubber roller (platen roller) on both ends. It is held in place by two black plastic clips that are attached to the roller ends and one of them may be broken. But usually it has just popped up on one side and pushing it down usually solves this problem.

ONLY TYPES TOP PART OF THE LETTER IBM WHEELWRITER 30 SERIES II


The most common problem is the platen (black roller) gets out of position. Be sure the black latches are aligned wuth the side frames then push down firmly on the ends of the platen it should snap into place.

When you turn the platen by hand is there a ratcheting noise?
If not the ratchet release lever may be in the wrong position or not engaging the platen. orthe spring for the detent arm is broken if it's not the lever you probably need a tech.

I assume you had the platen out and now it is not seated all the way in. Be sure the black latches are aligned with the side frames then push the platen FIRMLY down.
