SOURCE: Only typing half letters and numbers

On the WheelWriter series, sometimes the platen may pop out of position, causing only half the letters to print. If this is the case, easially solved... Using the left and right platen knobs, firmly push down to lock it back in place. Hope this helps....MediaMan

SOURCE: Typing half letters

If it was working befor you changed the ribbon check to be sure the ribbon's feet are engaged in the slots on the ribbon deck, that the blue latch is latched and there isn't a fold in the ribbon. If all of these are OK push down firmly on both ends of the platen.

Typewriter is only typing the top half of each letter- changed ribbon- still doesn't type the bottom of the letters ???


typing the top half of each letter Donna, sounds like the carriage spool is stuck or out of adjustment. Not to hard, but pick up typewriter and slam it down on counter to see if it put carriage and spool back in position.
Good luck.
