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

Turn it off and on it should go thru it's dance and rehome the print wheel. f you are notin KBII , language mode or the print wheel damaged the homing pawl for the P/W is probably broken you need a tech.

WHEN TYPING A HALF SPACE IS SKIPPED OCCASIONALLY AND WILL NOT CORRECT THE LETTER TYPED, IS THE LETTER WHEEL REPLACABLE?


To answer your question yes the print wheel can be changed, BUT that is not your problem. The machine needs to be reset or the reset tab needs adjusting.


Background;

When you turn on the machine the print head moves to the right side, the print wheel spins, and the ribbon jumps up and down, that is the machine resetting its self.


I would

  1. Power it off and then turn it back on and test to again.
  2. If it's still typing the wrong or unreadable letters then turn off the power open the lid. On the bottom of the case there is a metal frame on the right side of the frame you will see a small metal tab pointing towards the print head.
    1. (When the machine resets its self, it uses that tab as a reference.)
  3. That tab is easily bent which causes the reset to be wrong. Most people can bend it by hand, DON'T use a pliers! The tab can break off completely. It doesn

Wrong letters are printed


The Daisy wheel is probably in wrong..reinstall it until it spins to the home position. Its either that or an adjustment to the print wheel motor.

My keyboard does not display the letters I am keying


Just a little help from you. Does it type the wrong letters or not type some letters at all? Is the display right and print wrong or viisa versa?

Lexmark 1500 typeover


There are a few possibilities, first check to see if it is in the language mode, light on the rt. side code "L" will get you out of it. If that is OK the keyboard may be selecting the wrong keyboard. Press and hold code key, press and release the "L" key, type 001, release the code key. If this solves the problem. check the keyboard connectors. If they seem to be fully plugged in you will need a keyboard.

It sounds like you have the 10,12,15,PS selector switch on PS with a 10, or 12 print wheel installed. Return to the left margin, move the switch to 10 and type.

Cannot type letters.


Your T/W neads a new keyboard membrane, you cannot clean this type membrane so you will have to replace it.
