Typing verticle lines instead of character

When I hit a key ( Mostly the number keys ,3 & 8, but it has happened with letters too) I'm getting two verticle lines where the character should be. ThenI hit the erase key, and it doesn't take them away.

It sounds like the spokes on the P/W are damaged or bent, you can try straightening them or put in a new printwheel.

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.

Key strokes


Hi

I suspect that the key with and asterix (with a circle) around it is stuck (or the electrical mechanism is stuck) - or similar key with similar function.
the characters appearing - do these relate to 'the key in question, but as a special character ??
I have the manual for the typewriter, but there is nothing immendiate to explain your problem.
Feel free to respond to this with an email address, and I will gladly forward it to you.
