Incomplete letters when typing

Lately when typing certain letters they seem to be cut off. The ribbon seems to be loosely in place and doesn't "feel" locked in. Also does the power button remain red?

Ribbon not lifting high enough maybe because it is loose. check ribbon itself if you wind it up does it stay tight, if not bad ribbon.

When typing the very top of the letter or number is cut off.


First look at the ribbon, be sure that there isn't creased or folded. If the ribbon is old the edges will have have places where it will not print. If everything seems OK there is a ribbon lift adjustment on the front side if the printer just under the ribbon deck. You will need a 9/32 wrench and a skinny flat blade screw driver.

Try a little WD40 on the silver shaft the carrier slides on, look for debris in the area below the carrier, turn it off and slide the carrier by hand feeling for anything binding.

My Wheelwriter 5 types faded and incomplete letters. We changed to a new ribbon, but problem is still there. Seems the pressure is not hard enough.


The solenoid for the hammer is probably sticky or the pad is worn.
This requires disassembly for cleaning, lube or replacing the pad.

Only part of the character/letter is showing


make sure the ribbon is latched into place (should lock down) also check on the ribbon itself to make sure the print is in the middle of the ribbon and not on the very bottom, if the ribbon is locked down and types of the bottom of the ribbon, it is out of adjustment. if the ribbon looks ok, move the paper scale (the plastic piece on top of the platen) up out of the way, then push down sharply on the platen. if it moves down and clickes into place, it should work OK.

Look at the ribbon and see if the letters are on the very top of th ribbon. If so on the front of the carrier there is an eccentric screw for adj. ribbon height. Loosen the lock nut W/ a small 9/32 wrench and adj screw to raise ribbon. Be sure to check L/O with the underscore as you can get it to high.
