The most likely thing is a broken plastic print solenoid cap.

We sell them for 20.00 includes instructions and shipping.

Where is the bold key


The 8014S does not have a BOLD key. However, you can do two things to make your print darker:

(1) Set the Impression Control Switch (three dots located above the 10/12/15 selector) to the largest dot.

(2) Turn on double-strike mode by simultaneously pressing the ESC and O keys. (To turn off double-strike mode, simultaneously press the ESC and & keys.)

Please see attached photo, this is what's


what are you trying to do ?
a bit more information might be able to help you.
IE: what are you doing when this (pop up) occurs ?
and why are striking the F1 or F2 keys ?

Computer keyboards contain keys that, when pressed on their own or in conjunction with another key, provide shortcuts to performing functions, saving time and keystrokes.
On most keyboards, these are the function, or "F," keys that run along the top of the keyboard. "F1" and "F2" are members of this group.
F1 Function Key

Pressing the "F1" function key while you are in an application will bring up the application's help file.
Pressing it when you are not in Windows Explorer or on the desktop produces the "Windows Help" file.
If you are in an application and press the "F1" button along with the Windows button, you will get the "Windows Help" file.

F1 Function Key Combined With Other Keys
"F1" can be pressed with other keys to gain a variety of results and functions.
Press "F1" and the "Shift" key to start context sensitive help, or help for the application.
Use the "F1" key with "Alt" to go to the next field in an application.
Press "F1," "Shift" and "Alt" at the same time to return to the previous field in an application.
To display the Microsoft system information, press "Ctrl," "Alt" and "F1" at the same time.

F2 Function Key Clicking on an icon on your desktop and pressing the "F2" function key will put the icon into rename mode in the same way as right-clicking on the icon and scrolling to "Rename."
F2 Function Key Combined With Other Keys
"F2" when pressed with other keys combines functions commonly found in the application "File" and "Edit" menus.
To copy selected text, highlight the text and press "Shift" with "F2."
To view a print preview of a document, press "Ctrl" with "F2" when in a document.
To save a document, press "Alt," "Shift" and "F2 together when in the application.
To choose the open file command, press "Ctrl," "Alt" and "F2."

Go to www.google.com and in the search box type:"Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download andinstall malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When thesite opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do notclick the Red Download button, that's junk. When it finishes installing the GuiInterface will open up with an offer to Accept a Trial Version orDecline. CLICK DECLINE you want the totally free version. Run aQUICK SCAN. As it scans, if it finds infections the number will be inred. When it finishes scanning, click SHOW RESULTS. A notepad textdocument will open up showing you the results. You can close the textdocument and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTEDRESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When itfinishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot yourmachine.

I strike letter "m" it


try to disconnect your keyboard and turn the computer off.. when you plug it back up it should have been reset.. or go to the keyboard settings in control panel and you should be able to fix it from there... when you type on a word processor does the letters do the same thing or is it only when you are printing??

Wheelwriter 6 typewriter hammer no longer strikes


It is pretty common for the pad on the solenoid to strike the keys wears out, and for the batteries to be dead for the memory. Your machine probably needs a good cleaning, oiling, and a new pad for the striker. about $100.00 in the shop.

Everything works except for spacebar & key advance


The T/W is probably just gummy. Will it tab? If so the correction mech. is probably the trouble, if not try some WD40 on the silver shaft that the s
