Question about Lexmark Wheelwriter 1500 Typewriter
Characters fill in of have ink smear to the right of the character. Tried new type wheel, ribbon to no avail. Looks like the ribbon might be advancing at the same time as the hammer strikes the print wheel, dragging the ribbon across the paper. Happens with letters a, i, j more than any others.
This is a common problem with old supplies stored in a humid environment. Try leaving ribbon in an air conditioned environment for a couple of days to see if it helps. Otherwise buy a new sealed ribbon to try. Also push the hammer buy hand and see if it moves in and out freely and quickly. If not, the hammer needs some lubricant and or adjusting.
