    Thanks P McD, it is the actual characters that don't print the correctly, for example when you push i,o,or p it prints the letter u only. The same goes for the next 2 lines. Probably is stuffed!!

The question is a little confusing. If you mean the actual characters on the right side of the actual keyboard don't print, then you need a serviceman to fix it. If you mean it won't print on the right side of the carriage, then check that the platen is snapped in place, or that the carrier is not binding on the shaft (a little oil on the shaft and felt next to the body of the carrier). Hope this helps.

    You have something sticking or out of adjustment. It will need a serviceman to repair.

SOURCE: GX6750 Typing wrong letters

Linda,first of all,does the daisy wheel spin when the typewriter is first turned on? if it does,then you will feel assured that it is installed properly. Next, refer to your manual to key board settings. It will indicate that there are settings for normal standard English keyboard and somehow that setting may have been changed. It would be also be important to check the daisy wheel to see if it is compatible with standard English keyboard...Cheers, John

The typewriter is set in P.S. mode instead of 10 or 12. This switch is in lower left corner of keyboard.

Press the Code button and the Q/Reset button at the same time and the wheel will spin and go back to the correct place.

The typewriter is suddenly squeezing all the letters really close together???

Depending on the typewriter, there is a "PITCH" control putton or keyboard function, 10 pitch is pica (10 characters per inch) 12 is elite or 12 characters per inch and there is a 15 pitch which will crowd letters together. set the pitch to 10, make sure the printwheel is a 10 pitch wheel and this may work. Also there is a chrome rod runs from left to right, place a small drop of 3/1 oil on tis rod and move the carrier back and forth either by hand or tab and carriage return...

Typing different letters than what i am striking

Your are on the wrong keyboard setting. Look around the typewriter,usually on the left side of the keyboard, and you will see a setting 1,2 or 3. Keyboard one is the one you want.
