Replacing the print solenoid cap


The best way to find what you are looking for is to look at your printwheel. Right in the middle of the carriage there is a part that hits the printwheel. That is called the hammer. If you look down on the left side you will see a blue piece of rubber that attaches to the hammer. If you continue to look further down the hammer you will see the solenoid that activates and hits a screw that sticks out from the hammer. The end of the solenoid is where the "cap" can be attached. You do not have to remove the solenoid to install the repair "cap" if that is what you are really looking for. A technician can put in a new cap in less that 30 seconds.

Print wheel hammer not hitting print wheel when typing.


Your problem is probably the print solenoid either not firing or the cap that is on the end of it has broken off. Usually the cap is broken and a new one can be installed in its place.

Letters now well formed


first of all check out replacing the ribbon cartridge.if the cartridge is got torn or over stretched.so replace the ribbon . There is a solenoid down to the left of the horseshoe shaped printwheel mount. If it is gummed up or the nylon hammer plate is broken or missing the hammer will not strike the printwheel and you will not get print out or broken letters on print. Check the solenoid with a thin screwdriver by pulling and pushing the plate and rod in and out as if you were trying to make the solenoid push the hammer toward the type wheel. If the hammer moves when you bush the solenoid then it may be gummed up or not getting electrical impulse. If it moves but the hammer doesn't move then the cushion at the tip of the solenoid is missing and the gap is to great for the solenoid to act upon the hammer.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Wheel writer II will not print - replaced with new ribbon


There's a small cap on the solenoid that pushes the hammer, this cap wears out and the solenoid cannot push anymore. Cheap part, always wears out, new ones are teflon and last lots longer.

No print on paper


there is a pad on the solenoid, where it contacts the printhammer. this pad gets old and just falls apart. this will need to be taken to a repair shop to have the pad or solenoid replaced, or there is an adjustment screw that can be used to take up the slack caused by the missing pad. the printhead must be taken out of the machine to make this adjustment.
