The print head might have accummulated a lot of paper bits you need to clear them with a needle or just submerge the tip in petrol or ether. Caution do not submerge if its made of plastic.

Replacing wheel with the letters & numbers


Replace with letters facing foreward (towards paper).
If there is no plastic printwheel lever then,
Push the print hammer shroud gently foreward until it "clicks".

Types wrong Characters


Does it always type the same wrong letter ie a always prints u or w ? if so the print wheel drive gear is out of position. if not and it get random letters some thing may be interfering with the wheel rotation.
