First I would remove and inspect the daisy wheel for bent spokes. If that looks ok there may be a problem with the selection plate assembly, but it would take a technician to figure that out. Just make sure you turn the machine off/on if you removed the daisy wheel so it can re-initialize and find the home position of the daisy wheel. good luck.
1. Open the top cover. 2. Pull the lever towards you to release the daisy wheel lock. 3. Remove the cassette daisy wheel by pulling it out of the machine by the protruding "ear' on the top right. 4. Insert the desired cassette daisy wheel into the slot and press down gently. 5. Slide the lever back to its' original position to lock the cassette daisy wheel in place. Make sure to press the lever firmly. 6. Close the top cover. 7. Press [CODE]+[RESET] to move the carrier to the previous position. (make sure the daisy wheel cassette is not inserted backwards. The "ear" should always be on the upper right. improper insertion of the daisy wheel may cause malfunction and incorrect printing. It is not necessary to remove the cassette ribbon when replacing the daisy wheel. Please check the shape of your daisy wheel cassette before replacing the daisy wheel. The daisy wheel cassette type "B" cannot be used with this machine.)
Switchoff just remove your daisy wheel & remove the daisy wheel from its cover & see all the letters should be straight.If any of them is bended jst make them straight by your fingers dont press too hard & then fix the daisy wheel back & switch on typewriter.
Turn the typewriter off. There is a release lever for the daisy wheel. it will rock backwards. take out the daisy wheel. Turn on the unit..the daisy wheel motor spins to the home position. inset the daisy wheel carrier, snap the carrier closed. You should be in home position. if not turn it offf and on again, the daisy wheel should spin. if not do the proceedure over again. Happy typing
Geno111 doesn't know what he's talking about. Look closely at your correction tape once it has passed the daisy wheel. Does it looked roughed up a little? I just had this same error and discovered that my daisy wheel was hitting my tape when spinning and not allowing it to jump characters like it needed to. I simply put a little double sided tape on the daisy wheel cover between it and the metal tab that holds the ribbon at a certain distance, to increase the space the daisy wheel has to spin. It seems to have worked so far. If anyone has a permanent solution, or answer as to how it spins wobbly, I'd love to hear it.
