Is your platen snapped down all the way? Can you look at the ribbon and see where the letters are striking the ribbon?

Sounds like the platen is not fully seated in the side frames, align the black latches with the frames and press firmly on both sides of the platen. the latches do occasionally crack in witch case you may need a platen replacement.

The platen probably worked itself out press firmly down on both ends of the platen it slould click into place. If it won't stay you will need a platen.
