It sounds as if the print wheel may be jammed usually caused by a bent letter spoke. Remove the print wheel and check that it can turn also look inside the area that it sits in to see is there is something that is interfering with the wheel.

What is wrong with my laptop? It is as if the shift key is stuck


Go into device manager in windows and delete it and reboot. If it comes back when it detects the keyboard and it works then it was a driver, if it does detect it or it wont work correctly then it is a bad keyboard. You can also try a plug in keyboard to see how it behaves, ps keyboards are not that expensive.

Swintec 2640 Typing wrong characters


On the L. of the keyboard there is a slide switch for pitch it should be in 10, 12 or 15 not in PS. If it isn't in PS push down on it and slide it up and down a few times and leave it in 10 or 12.

Olympia supertype 330 types wrong characters


check the pitch setting to make sure that it matches the printwheel. It is the switch that is marked 10, 12, 15, PS. PS is proportional spacing and will only type correctly with a PS wheel. The number settings are for PICA ELITE and MICRO.. 10, 12 and 15. The numbers are characters per inch...so the larger the number, the smaller the character.. it is the opposite of FONT SIZE.

Need to change the font size


you would have to buy a new printwheel and change the pitch setting (which is a switch on the left side of the keyboard tha has 10, 12, 15, PS printed next to it) or just changing the pitch setting may get you the desired results. it won't hurt anything to change the settings, it just changes the spacing. The PS setting only works on a PS printwheel, any other kind will just print the wrong letters.

Types wrong letters


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.
