My typewriter only prints the bottom half of the lower-case letters. The upper case letters print perfectly, but the lower case letters that are tall: f,h,d (etc) still have trouble.

The right side of the platen has prabably come unlatched. Just push down on the right side of the platen, (black roller the opaper goes around) it should clunk down into place.

U HAVE NOT UNLOCKED THE CARRIAGE. LOOK AT THE VERY ENDS OF THE CARRIAGE AND U WILL FIND A LOCK THAT HAS TO BE REALEASED, OR THE LOCK COULD BE COMBINED WITH THE PAPER LINE SPACE SELECTOR.

SOURCE: my typewriter prints the bottom

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

Bottom part of lower case letter not printing


If the problem is just one character that is not printing the bottom then the printwheel is damaged and will need to be replaced. If it is all of the characters then the platen (roller) may not be snapped down on either side.

When printing, the top half of page prints normal... bottom half of page very faint...


Your ink cartridge has about 9 very small nozzles that spray ink to complete a letter the upper nozzles complete the upper half and the lower half is done by the lower nozzles. The lower nozzles are stopped or clogged up by dried up ink or the control resisters in the firing circuit are burned out. some times you can unclog the nozzles by soaking the lower part of the cartridge in hot water for a half hour and drying it well ,replace it in the carrier and try it again. However you will lose a lot of ink and it may be more prudent to replace the cartridge.
