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.

While typing on my Smith Corona KA13, suddenly different letters and characters would type instead of the ones I was typing. Like an "H" instead of an "R". An "S" instead of a "D"..... Any help please..
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.
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.
