The print head might have accummulated a lot of paper bits you need to clear them with a needle or just submerge the tip in petrol or ether. Caution do not submerge if its made of plastic.

In the middle of typing, my Smith Corona is now typing weird symbols. What did I do and how do I get it back to regular characters?


Remove the print wheel, look for broken or bent spokes. Turn it off and on it should reset itself.
