    Having the same problem in our office. We get one shorter line on the left and a longer line on the right. Appears that the hammer is hitting between the area it should, so no letter is printing, just the edge of each piece on the font wheel.

The hammer has two vertical pieces at the front, meant to strike the print wheel.
Do you have a font wheel in it?

SOURCE: Hello! My typewriter types two vertical

The spoke on yuor printwheel is probably bent or broken. A new P/W would be best but if it is bent you may be able to align it.

It sometimes types the letter s,t,and sometimes it replaces them with two vertical lines.


Most likely one or more of the spokes is bent on the print wheel. Remove the wheel and turn it by hand you can usually straighten them. The vertical lines are from the face of the hammer when it misses the letter.

Olympia Startype 3 occasionally types double vertical line and spacing is changing between letters


Check the printwheel for any broken or bent spokes. vertical lines means the wheel is between letters so either a problem with printwheel or something preventing wheel from turning normally.

I cannot type the @ sign on my typewriter


If it types nothing or vertical lines you probably need a pwintwheel, if it is typing a different letter you may be in KBII.

When I type some of the letters are appearing with double lines. what is wrong?


Hi;

If you are getting to small vertical lines instead of the character then the printwheel might be bad. All the spokes on the printwheel should be evenly spaced and not bent or deformed.

Thin vertical line


What you have described is definitely some form of Electrical Interference. Interference can come from a variety of causes. Is the Cable Inputting the Cable Box close to some High Voltage Electrical Lines? Or Are you located near some Electrical Power Station? Or A Police station, where the Radio Transmitter of the Police Station causing the Interference? As I said, there are a variety of reasons. Also, Try to check if the connector is loose at the rear of the Cable Box, or at the rear of the TV. You will have to eliminate every possibility reason. Wish i could help further.
