Probably the platen isn't fully seated in the side frames. Check to be sure the black latches are lined up with the frames, then press firmly on both ends of the platen.
This should help

Is the hammer moving at all? There is a rubber part on the I think left side of the ribbon hammer, down on the side of the printer. This will adjust the amount of impact. I really doubt if
this is the problem, but worth a try to look at. This part and I think it is a blue slide will move up and down to adjust the impact. Possible lubrication and there is a large spring that actually pulls that hammer forward, check to see if this spring is OK. Other than that electronic problems such as main board, printer motors, etc. Does hammer move freely by hand? Also mechanical binding in the printer... GOOD LUCK.

yes it was true that the cap was broken. temporarily, i just cut a piece of plastic from a spoon, same thickness as the cap then place it between the plunger and the solenoid. and now my wheelwriter is typing great! all letters are clear and much black in color. thanks for pointing where the cap was place. easy to find it.
