    The problem persists, the typewriter types uncontrollable, then it stops at the end and makes a continuous beeping sound.
    The code key is not operational. Shift key to write capital letters does not work.

Device seems to be jammed, I dont have a service manual and i dont think there is any available.

All I can suggest is to take it to a professional.

Good luck.

Repeating Key


Humidity could be a factor but more likely something got vspilled in the keyboard ans is shorting out some ofthe traces, you need a tech to open and clean or replace the velum.

How to type in capital letters on facit typewriter?


You did not specify if it was a manual or electric or the model, so assuming it is a standard manual or electric machine, push down on the shift key and hold it, then type your letter or letters. If you are typing everything in caps, press the shift lock key.

Lock switch stays on


The light goes on to indicate that the shift lock is engaged, so all letter type in upper case (capital) letters, or on machines with "spell check" to indicate a mis-spelled word. It should go out when you hit eithor left or right shift keys, correct the mis-spelled word or just continue typing.
If it just stays on all the time no matter what you do, there is a problem with the main board.

Typing verticle lines instead of character


It sounds like the spokes on the P/W are damaged or bent, you can try straightening them or put in a new printwheel.
