Check the pitch switch. On the keyboard is a switch alongside 10,12,15,PS. It may be you have a "10" print wheel and the switch is selecting either 12 or 15. Move it to 10 and test type

Plain old fasion gear greese or a little touch of WD 40 would work just perfect for unsticking this.

If you mean that it types the wrong letters check the pitch slide switch on the left of the ketboard. it should be in 10 or 12 not in PS.

My Swintec 7040 when I type a letter or word only write a half of the letter or the word and when I try to erase a letter or word the typewriter erase this but the erase ribbon stay in the same position...


There are a few possibilities. If only the tops are printing Press down on the platen to be sure it is fully seated in the side frame. The T/W may be in the overstrike ribbon mode Code period, comma or slash will get you out of that mode.

When typing wrong letters and numbers type


You might have a "proportional space" printwheel but the pitch selector is on 10, 12, or 15 instead of PS. OR it is on PS but you have a normal print wheel. Try selecting different pitches. Another thing that causes that problem is sometimes the ribbon or correction tape gets caught in the printwheel.

If what you are saying is that you get 2 vertical lines instead of a letter start with a new printwheel, what you are seeing is the hammer face when it misses the printwheel.

First check check the pitch selector switch to be sure it is not in proportional spacing. if it isn't push down on it and see if it goes away, if is goes away the keyboard needs repaired.
