IBM Wheelwriter 15 Series II -- the paragraph symbol appears when we type the @

Does anyone know how to reset our keyboard or fix the following problem? For whatever reason, the paragraph symbol is what appears when you hold down the shift key and press 2 to try and type the @ sign. Any thoughts on how to fix it? Thanks.

I have an IBM Wheelwriter 15 Series II that when I turn it on and try to type, nothing types on the paper.

You probably have a broken plastic print solenoid cap. We sell them for 20.00 includes shipping and instructions.

Hums, but no light and can't type

Turn the T/W off and see if the carrier will move freely back and forth. if it won't try some WW40 on the silver shaft it slides on.
