Is the platon properly seated? Sometimes the platon (the rubber tube thing that you crank the paper around) has been removed and then not returned all the way down into its cradle. Try pushing both sides down with equal pressure and see if it drops down and tightens. Good luck!

Could also be that your paper is too fibrous of finish. I found this page because my typewriter was ghosting, too. I adjusted some of the settings and there was not a trace of ghosting. I put the settings back and still no trace of ghosting. Then I realized that I tested for ghosting on paper that has a much smoother finish. I was ghosting on cheap paper we use here at work. So, I don't blame the typewriter. I blame the cheap paper. My typewriter just likes good paper.
This problem is usually caused by an old ribbon theey do dry out when left in tthe typewriter a long time, also if the paper is really hard or has a slick surface the ink from the ribbon will not stick to the paper.
