Sounds like your keys are sticking together. Pop the affected keys off with a flat tip screw driver and remove any debris. If there is something sticky, remove with Q-Tip soaked in rubbing alcohol. Then replace keys.

When typing does not print whole letter or doesn't print at all.


it would help if i knew exactly what model # we are talking about. but try this. look closely at your ribbon film after you type some characters. are the letters overlapping themselves? if so, press and hold the "code" key down while pressing the period key. let up and try typing. if that doesn't help, write back with model # and maybe i can assist further.

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.

I am trying to type a letter but when I strike the letter g it types a $. None of the keys seem to be lined up with the correct letter on the wheel. How do you correct this problem?


there is a slide switch on the L.H. side of the key board that reads 10,12,15, PS
the switch needs to match the print wheel stile you have in your typewriter. most typ's have 10 or 12.
PS stands for proportional spacing a takes a spicule print wheel
