The platen may not be fully seated in the side frames, be sure the plastic latches are aligned with the side frames then push firmly on both ends of the platen to seat it.

Cutting of bottom of letters


Really, you have a typewriter?

You stop typing before you reach the end. If it is the electronic type with a display, you need to set the paper size to the size of paper you are using.

If you are using a computer and word processing program, again, set the paper size.

For a Swintec 8014 typewriter: the bottom portion of the letters are not tranferring to the paper when the keys are striked. although the ribbon shows the full letter being striked, only the top portion...


Check to be sure the ribbon dosen't have a fold in it and is fully seated in place, be sure the platen is fully seated in the side frames, check the correction tape for proper imstallation it can rob the print if to high.

Keys are striking the paper but no black ink is printing on paper


If tou put in a two part form and it types on the second form the ribbon is either empty of not lifting up. If it isn't lifting up there is a large black gear on the rt. side of the printer, wiggle it back and forth they sometimes jam tooth for tooth.

KEY STRIKING PRESSURE


Try taking the ribbon out and looking at it see if there is one spot for each character on the ribbon or if they are overlapping.If they are over lapping then either you have a problem with the ribbon drive assembly on the machine or it is set for a multi-strike ribbon.
