Turn the machine off then on or hold down the "code" key and hit Q "reset" key to get the machine to type the correct keys. This usually happens because something interferes with the free rotation of the printwheel. Check to be sure the ribbon and corredtion tape are installed correctly and check to be sure none of the "fingers" on the printwheel are bent outward. If a finger is bent, bend it back. If everything looks okay, the board or power supply is going bad.
Relocate, on any typewriter, generally is used to take you back to where you left off typing. Example, you type a line and see an error at the beginning. You back space to correct it, hit relocate and it will return to where you stopped typing. Did this help?
