The printwheel is not snapped in properly and going to it's home position. The lines you see are from the hammer missing the letters. Keep trying..it will spin to its home position when installed properly, providing its not broken or bent.

HOW TO PUT IN THE LETTER Y IN MY KEYBOARD


If the letter Y sleeve is not damaged it should go back into place. Position the letter Y over shaft on keyboard, now line up Y sleeve with the shaft and push down until you hear a click and stop, the letter should be at the same hight as the others when in place.

When you type, each character you strike actually types another letter.


first try turn typewriter off, (button on left panel toward the back), then turn it back on, and while hold down the CODE button, press RESET key, the whole print head will move and reset

if that doesn't work, power off again, open the cover, release the lever to the Daisy Wheel, and inspect that Daisy Wheel - mine has a bent forward letter, and another letter was kinda stuck to the side of another letter... I gently fix both letters, put the Daisy Wheel back in, firmly lock it in place with the lever, close the cover... and voila, it works like a charm.

While you have it open you might want to dust (use the cleaning spray can duster)... You wouldn't believe what I found in my typewriter... Good luck!

If that doesn't work, I would replace the Daisy Wheel.

When braking have to step on the brake more than once and I already change the master cilinder


did you bench bleed the master cylinder before putting it on car. if not there is air in braking system. you can try this, have someone pump the brakes and hold them. when loosening line the brakes will go to floor, tell person to hold them till line is retightened. loosen one brake line to get trapped air out. close line and have person pump then hold the brakes and repeat above till the brakes go to floor. if this does not get all air out! then bleed at wheels. ( how to bench bleed master cylinder ).----- put in vise, fill resovoir full of brake fluid. use a dowel or similar to pump master cylinder,pump untill fluid is free of air bubbles shoots out that has no more air in it. keep fluid in it or you will get more air in it. when putting on car have fluid in it. as long as you do not loose fluid from lines, you should be ok!! have a good holiday !! if all else fails. be sure there is no leaks at the wheels or brake lines. usually if a wheel cylinder is leaking. you will see this on inside of wheels on backing plate. be sure to fill fluid when done.

Letters are not aligned


It's possible that your printer has soiled alignment strips/wheels that are throwing out it's spacial awareness.

If you open the printer lid and check for a clear plastic strip (with fine black lines inked on it) at the back of the printer you may notice that one or more parts are soiled with some ink, dust or are worn away. If it's the latter you could have problems but usually something like this comes down to a bit of dust and ink smearing so a gentle (emphasis on GENTLE here!) cleaning should remove the crud and get you back up and running again.

Can't remember if there's a similar disk/wheel on the Epson models as there are in HP officejets so I'd advise looking carefully for other possible soiling, etc...

Hopefully that will help a bit though..

Best of luck

PRINTER NOT PRINTING IN TRAY


Make sure the green part in the back of the tray is set exactly to the type of paper you are using. For example, make sure that if you are using letter paper, the paper size selector is set exactly on letter. if it already is try to move it off letter, and then line it up correctly again with letter.

Wong letters & numbers


I downloaded the manual from http://www.devicemanuals.com/downloadguide.php and then, following the instructions there, I removed then re-inserted the daisy wheel. This solved my problem. Perhaps it had somehow gotten out of adjustment. At least, it is something to try if you haven't tried it already.

Different letter appears from the one i've typed


Sounds like the wheel is out of alignment. I had this problem with the one I recently purchased for my daughter. Release the tension on the ribbon and head. Pull the wheel cartridge out and line up the letters. Put the wheel back and reapply tension. Repeat until it is aligned. Took me a couple tries to get it working, but its working and seems to be stable.
