If it is the top half the platen is probably not fully seated in the sideframes, press down firmly on both ends of the platen it should snap into place.

Typewriter is only typing the top half of each letter- changed ribbon- still doesn't type the bottom of the letters ???


typing the top half of each letter Donna, sounds like the carriage spool is stuck or out of adjustment. Not to hard, but pick up typewriter and slam it down on counter to see if it put carriage and spool back in position.
Good luck.

Typing half letters


If it was working befor you changed the ribbon check to be sure the ribbon's feet are engaged in the slots on the ribbon deck, that the blue latch is latched and there isn't a fold in the ribbon. If all of these are OK push down firmly on both ends of the platen.

My Lexmark Wheelwriter 1500 Typewriter is only showing half (the uper half) of the typed letter or num etc


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.

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
