Hi!
You may need to adjust the lever for it so it will hit hard enough to paper. Look for an adjustment lever on sides.
Keep me posted.

Replacing wheel with the letters & numbers


Replace with letters facing foreward (towards paper).
If there is no plastic printwheel lever then,
Push the print hammer shroud gently foreward until it "clicks".

To switch fonts on this typewriter, you need to change the letter wheel. Unfortunately, there is no practical way to change the letter wheel in the middle of a document.

When I type a letter it appears as two vertical lines but no letter


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

Does it always type the same wrong letter ie a always prints u or w ? if so the print wheel drive gear is out of position. if not and it get random letters some thing may be interfering with the wheel rotation.
