Question about Typewriters
Ok,there could be two possibilities ,1, The daisy wheel may not be seated in properly. Of course I assume that the print side of the daisy wheel is facing the platen and that when the typewriter is switched on the print unit makes its customary re-setting motion and that the daisy wheel spins around at the same time. if this does not happen make sure that the lock-in lever for the daisy wheel is pushed home.. I am sure that you do all these elementary things so the only other possibility is the the hammer seleniod is not fully functioning and would have to be re-placed....Good luck!

First, be sure you are
using a Brother compatible daisywheel. Some other manufactures' daisywheels "look"
the same but the charters are in different order, so they will not function
If you have not changed
the daisywheel, the next thing to check is that the wheel is correctly
installed. The easiest way to check it is to remove and reinstall it. To do
Open the top cover.
On the right side of the
hammer (the metal piece that strikes the daisywheel) there is a small lever
(see attached figure). Pull that locking lever towards you to release it.
Remove the cassette that
holds the daisywheel.
Reinstall it, making
sure that you lock the lever towards the paper roller.
When you close the top
cover the carriage (otherwise known as the print head) will move to one side
and do a procedure known as "Homing."
Test the machine. If it is still mistyping,
continue with the next part. Continued in part 2
