Re: cannot get daisy wheel to type correct letters

Each time you turn on the typewriter it locked the daisy wheel to its home position. This is how the control mechanism remember each pin position of the daisy wheel. However if there is any problem with the mechanism it may unlock from its home position and therefore type the wrong key.

Before you try my suggestion make sure the daisy wheel is OK. It should move freely inside its casing and each striking pin should be straight and evenly position between pins. The best way is to try with another daisy wheel and if it is OK chances are that your typewriter is OK.

Try this:
After initial turn on check that the hammer head align correctly. You do this by manually pushing the hammer towards the striking pin of the daisy wheel against the platen roller. The hammer head should accurately align at the center of the striking pin. If it is no good take the following steps:

a) Loosing the two screws left side to the hammer head (just loosen do not unscrew completely.
b) Move the hammer head left or right to align correctly towards the striking pin.
c) Once you got that you need to screw back the two screws while maintaining the new positon.
d) It is important to maintain the distance between the hammer head and the striking pin while doing that.

Re: cannot get daisy wheel to type correct letters

Turn oFF the typewriter, take the ribbon out.....use the lever on top to release and remove the print wheel cartridge. Lightly rotate it to see if it will move and reinsert the cartridge. snap it back into place.
Turn on the machine, the typewriter should move the carrier to the left and reset the printwheel....if it is snapped back properly.

Its not typing the correct letter. When you type. U can hit letter ''t'' and may type a ? mark.

if turning off for 20 seconds doesn't fix it look closely at the spokes and letters on the daisy wheel for bent or broken spokes or letters. replace daisy wheel if bent or broken about $35.00.

Press the Code button and the Q/Reset button at the same time and the wheel will spin and go back to the correct place.
