Sounds like the platen (black rubber roll) isn't fully seated in the side frames. Press down firmly on both ende of the platen it should snap into place.

Typewriter is only typing the top half of each letter- changed ribbon- still doesn't type the bottom of the letters ???


typing the top half of each letter Donna, sounds like the carriage spool is stuck or out of adjustment. Not to hard, but pick up typewriter and slam it down on counter to see if it put carriage and spool back in position.
Good luck.

Printing on the top half of the characters


Is your platen snapped down all the way? Can you look at the ribbon and see where the letters are striking the ribbon?

The lift-off tape is to low


1. Use the SPACEBAR or BACKSPACE to move the carrier to the center of the typewriter, then turn off the typewriter and unplug the unit from the AC outlet.
2. Open the Top Cover and remove the cassette ribbon, if installed.
3. Pull off both spools by holding the correction tape taut between the spools; bring the correction tape to a position parallel with the platen and lift up and out.

4. Pass the new tape through left guide, behind the ribbon guide and out through the right guide. The rough (sticky) side of the tape should face the platen.

5. Attach the feeder spool to the pin on the left.

6. Attach the take up spool to the pin on the right. Turn the take up spool counter-clockwise until a small amount of white tape has wound around it.

7. Replace the cassette ribbon and close the top cover, plug in the AC cord to the AC outlet, and turn on the typewriter.

My Swintec 7040 when I type a letter or word only write a half of the letter or the word and when I try to erase a letter or word the typewriter erase this but the erase ribbon stay in the same position...


There are a few possibilities. If only the tops are printing Press down on the platen to be sure it is fully seated in the side frame. The T/W may be in the overstrike ribbon mode Code period, comma or slash will get you out of that mode.

My typewriter prints the bottom half of the letter. Do I need a new wheel or a defective ribbon. This started when I changed the ribbon.


Most likely the ribbon isn't in right. Go to NADIST.COM click on current models you will find a manual there.

Wheelwriter 30 series II. was typing OK but now get only less than half of letter to print. replaced ribbon same thing. tried adjusted ribbon (now sure was in right area) and still only printing less...


If it is printing only the tops of the letters the platen has worked loose. Press down firmly on both ends it should snap into place. If the print is generally bad the plastic print solenoid cap is probably broken. We sell them for 20.00 includes shipping and instructions.

Only typing half letters and numbers


On the WheelWriter series, sometimes the platen may pop out of position, causing only half the letters to print. If this is the case, easially solved... Using the left and right platen knobs, firmly push down to lock it back in place. Hope this helps....MediaMan
