When typing sometimes the bottom half of the letters do not show up. The Hammer solenoid is only a couple of months old. The lower case j, q,y, etc. are the worst.. Thank you in advance for your help..

There is a solenoid down to the left of the horseshoe shaped printwheel mount. If it is gummed up or the nylon hammer plate is broken or missing the hammer will not strike the printwheel and you will not get print out or broken letters on print. Check the solenoid with a thin screwdriver by pulling and pushing the plate and rod in and out as if you were trying to make the solenoid push the hammer toward the type wheel. If the hammer moves when you bush the solenoid then it may be gummed up or not getting electrical impulse. If it moves but the hammer doesn't move then the cushion at the tip of the solenoid is missing and the gap is to great for the solenoid to act upon the hammer. This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the
solution positively .thank you for using fixya
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
