It sounds like you have the 10,12,15,PS selector switch on PS with a 10, or 12 print wheel installed. Return to the left margin, move the switch to 10 and type.

SOURCE: when typing wrong letters and numbers type

You might have a "proportional space" printwheel but the pitch selector is on 10, 12, or 15 instead of PS. OR it is on PS but you have a normal print wheel. Try selecting different pitches. Another thing that causes that problem is sometimes the ribbon or correction tape gets caught in the printwheel.

MY IBM SELECTRIC II TYPES THE WRONG LETTERS. I CHANGED THE RIBBON, AND THE CORRECT TYPE. WHEN I PUT THE ELEMENT ON, IT STARTING TYPING THE WRONG LETTERS.


Not good. You probably turned the element while removing it and if you are lucky had it come off one of the pulleys, but more likely it came off the wheel under the element. Then you will need a tech.

WHEN YOU TYPE A LETTER LIKE J FOR EXAMPLE, IT DOESNT TYPE A J.. IT TYPES DIFFERENT LETTER .


If it always types the same wrong letter you are probably in a language mode or the pitch is in ps. If the letter changes after you turn it off and on the homing pawl spring is bad you need a tech.

Hi there. Take out the printwheel and see if any of the spokes are bent. That would cause wrong letters. . Also if the print solenoid(piston) does not go in and out freely. Lawrence
