Try pushing down on both ends of the black platen roller. Sometimes one of the black clips on the end of the roller can break causing one end of the roller to lift up, giving half letters.The clip on the right side can be replaced but the left side clip can not so roller would have to be replaced.

If it is the top half the platen has worked loose. Press down firmly on both sides it should snap into place.

No, the printwheels are the same for all Wheelwriters. Make sure the letters face the roller when you put it in (pull the print hammer assy back and check for paper clips, ribbon pieces, etc. first).

If it is only typing the top half of the letters the platen may not be fully seated in the side frames, push down firmly on both ends of the platen it should snap into place.

It sounds like the Platen roller has popped up out of place on one side. Try pushing down on the black rubber roller (platen roller) on both ends. It is held in place by two black plastic clips that are attached to the roller ends and one of them may be broken. But usually it has just popped up on one side and pushing it down usually solves this problem.

Only typing half letters and numbers


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
