I have tried every way I can think of to insert the daisy wheel, but obviously there is one I haven't tried. It seats well, but if I type an "a" I may get an "h", (it changes everytime a re-insert the wheel), but it is consistent, I will always get an "h" for an "a" as long as I don't re-sert the wheel. I have tried hitting C reset, there is no beeping, but no change in the letters.
Thanks for any help...

The print hammer is striking between the letters. Two thing
you may have a petal, letter broken off. If its the same letter every time usually thats it, need new daisy wheel.
Or Homing is off when the wheel turns hammer hits between letters. Needs repair.
Daisy wheel petals are bent.
first try turn typewriter off, (button on left panel toward the back), then turn it back on, and while hold down the CODE button, press RESET key, the whole print head will move and reset
if that doesn't work, power off again, open the cover, release the lever to the Daisy Wheel, and inspect that Daisy Wheel - mine has a bent forward letter, and another letter was kinda stuck to the side of another letter... I gently fix both letters, put the Daisy Wheel back in, firmly lock it in place with the lever, close the cover... and voila, it works like a charm.
While you have it open you might want to dust (use the cleaning spray can duster)... You wouldn't believe what I found in my typewriter... Good luck!
If that doesn't work, I would replace the Daisy Wheel. gkt
Switchoff just remove your daisy wheel & remove the daisy wheel from its cover & see all the letters should be straight.If any of them is bended jst make them straight by your fingers dont press too hard & then fix the daisy wheel back & switch on typewriter.
It is usually that the printwheel is in wrong. Make sure the pw does not have any bent "petals" on it making it bind. After it snaps in and closes it should go to it home position. If not keep trying a couple of more times and it should seat in.
