U r keyboard is likely to b defective or ur ram..
lightly strike/tap the keypad using ur hand..

if u r a professional, open the keyboard..deep clean all the carbon contacts beneath the keys using Iso-Propyl alcohol..put/stick 'Carbon-Dots' (available in cheap level spare market) as n where necessary..
hope it'll work..

better to seek professional supervision esp of ur system admin/vendor....

You need to try and loose the keyboard. There might be dust in it, so clean thoroughly and couple it back and lets see what happens.

Best wishes

Ibm wheelwriter 10 only typing half the letter


If it is only one letter, it could be broken in half. Pull the printwheel out and look at it. If it is all charachters, push down firmly on the platen on the side where the print is worse. It should click back down into place. Sometimes the platen unlatches.

The bottom half of the letters typed dont show up


Press down firmly on both ends of the platen (black rubber roll) it should snap into place, if it comes back out one of the latches is broken and will need replaced.

Lexmark e352dn-load manual plain letter message


In most cases if the printer is asking for an unexpected manual feed it is because the paper tray is not set to the right paper size or type. To set the paper size to the most common size and type (letter size plain paper) use the following instructions.

1. Press the Menu button.
2. Press the right arrow key until Paper Menu then press Check Mark.
3. Press the right arrow key until Size/Type then press Check Mark.
4. Press the right arrow key until Tray 1 then press Check Mark.
5. Press the right or left arrow key until Letter then press Check Mark.
6. Press the right or left arrow key until Plain then press Check Mark.
7. Press the back button until Ready is displayed.

This will set up your printer tray for plain letter paper and should relieve the manual feed error unless yourcomputer is sending other paper size/type settings.

I am only getting half of the letters, and it is stuck on del,typing how can I get it off delayed typing?


I'M assuming this is a wheelwriter 30 or similar. On the R. side of the keyboard is a key that says print mode press that and the dl prt will go off on the display. If you are only printing the tops of the letters the platen is probably not fully seated in the side frames press down firmly on both ends it should snap into place.

Letters are not printing fully.


First press firmly down on both ends of the platen it will snap into place if it has worked out of place. If that dosen't do it the plastic cap on the print solenoid is probably cracked. We sell them for 20.00 includes shipping and installation instructions.

G6000 hen pressing keyboard letter it type 4


Hi there

Does this happen with almost every key, or only certain keys? And if you press a key very quickly, does it still register it as 4 presses?

Also, please confirm the operating system on the laptop, such as XP or Vista.

Please do not rate this solution unless I have answered your question or your reply will not be returned to me. Thanks.
