Your problem is the printwheel. The "u" is probably broken. The lines that you see are the print hammer hitting the page instead of the character. All of the letters are on the printwheel and they are on the ends of little fingers. The tips sometimes either get bent but they usually break. Replacing the printwheel should resolve your problem.
While typing on my Smith Corona KA13, suddenly different letters and characters would type instead of the ones I was typing. Like an "H" instead of an "R". An "S" instead of a "D"..... Any help please..
Hi Many brother type writers have two cam assemblies under ribbon holder. One operates the print hammer and the other operates the correction ribbon lift. sometimes they gets stuck or lock themselves up. turning on and off a few times will take care of it, but sometimes it needs to be worked on by a tech. If you look when you type a character, most likely the print hammer is not firing or it is striking the correction ribbon instead of the black ribbon. Let us know if you want to know something more else please accept the suggestion. Thanks for contacting Fixya.com
alot of the brother t/w's have 2 cam assemblies under ribbon holder. 1 operates the print hammer and 1 operates the correction ribbon lift. sometimes these will hang or lockup. sometimes turning on and off a few times will take care of it, but sometimes it needs to be worked on by a t/w tech. if you look when you type a character, most likely the print hammer is not firing or it is striking the correction ribbon instead of the black ribbon.
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.
