Re: Print Wheel Drive Gear is out of Position
Power up the machine, the "V" groove of the hammer should be center aligned with the "." petal If not
1 remove the ribbon bracket
2 loosen screw of the daisy wheel (element) motor it has locktite on it , slide the motor up or down in its slot until the hammer and petal are aligned. If you cannot correct it this waydue to a lack of travel it becomes a more complicated job may need a typewriter repair man.

Thank you for the member's advise that...Replace the back cover with the arrow on the back point directly at the stem. The Indiglo backlight, Alarms and Chimes should all work when all the back cover is in the correct position.
If it's at the wrong position of cover it'll not work correctly because the speaker or buzzer of your watch must be attached on the correct case back. Just try to fix it right!
You can't have everything in the correct position or the drum would mount. Take a good look again. "Make sure" each part is correctly positioned and make sure the adjustment wheel is correct and that the parking brake is not engaged..
If you know how to remove the right dust cover (black inside the T/W below the carrier) next to the R. side frame is the correction set up mech. spray some WD40 on the arms especially where they pivot, they should free up.
Pull crown to "middle" position and turn CLOCKWISE until correct day appears. If day does not change, pull crown to "out" position and turn CLOCKWISE or COUNTERCLOCKWISE through the necessary number of 24 hour periods until correct day appears.
