Olympia Startype 3 occasionally types double vertical line and spacing is changing between letters


Check the printwheel for any broken or bent spokes. vertical lines means the wheel is between letters so either a problem with printwheel or something preventing wheel from turning normally.

When I type it is printing different letters than I am typing.


On most models there is a pitch switch 10.12.15.PS

you need to match the switch to what print wheel is in the typewriter. most common wheels are 10 or 12
move the switch to that area.

if that is not the problem take out the ribbon, corr. tape & print wheel. tuen on the typ. let it home, put the print wheel & ribbon ( Not the corr. tape) turn on let it home tray typing. if works O.K. put in the corr. tape .
Then you are good to go.

Some uppercase letters are not printing correctly


make sure ribbon and corr. tape are in properly and not interfering with the free movement of the printwheel. ribbon and tape should be between the two metal fingers and the cardholder. make sure the two fingers are not bent down into the printwheel. check the "fingers" on the printwheel to make sure they are straight. with the printwheel out of the machine, push the printhammer forward and release it to make sure it snaps back freely. if these seem to be okay then it could be a problem with the p/w motor or motherboard, and would need professional help.

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.

I have a Canon S330 printer which I have had for over five years and it has always been extremely reliable. However, very recently, it has not been printing so well. I typed a full page A4 letter yesterday...


it could be that the page lenght or papaersize is incorrect, you could try to adjust the paper size to A4 / letter size depending on the paper that is standard

Check the print wheel to see if any spokes are bent or missing, be sure that you have the proper correction tape (tack free) and that you are not in proportional space or have an international print wheel.
