Turn it off and on it should go thru it's dance and rehome the print wheel. f you are notin KBII , language mode or the print wheel damaged the homing pawl for the P/W is probably broken you need a tech.

When I type straight letters I get symbols and numbers an example I typed the phrase "Hi How are you?" w w-2 v/j a-qI appeared on my paper I have no idea how to clear this and return it to normal script


There is a switch on the keyboard that must have gotten moved..for symbols..or the printwheel is in wrong. Take the pw out and reseat it. it should spin when it is snapped back in. you may have to close the cover for it to go to it's Home position.

It sounds like you have the 10,12,15,PS selector switch on PS with a 10, or 12 print wheel installed. Return to the left margin, move the switch to 10 and type.

The printwheel is not in correctly. the printwheel has a bent spoke or the printwheel homing sensor needs cleaning. Lawrence

If the typewriter is typing letters or symbols that you do not type, it is usually because the Pitch Selector is set to "PS". The pitch selector is on the left hand side and has the numbers 10,12, 15 and PS. Place the selector on 10 or 12 and you will be OK.
Also, check to make sure your printwheel is installed properly. Remove it and put it back in to make sure.

Another thing you can try is to clear the memory. To do this, turn off the machine. Place a piece of paper in the machine sideways. Hold down the MAR REL key and while holding it down, turn on the machine. Wait 2 seconds, then let go of the key. The typewriter will start typing. Shut the machine off after about 15 seconds. Then turn it on as usual. This will clear the typewriter's memory and unexpected charaters should not happen anymore.

Cannot type letters.


Your T/W neads a new keyboard membrane, you cannot clean this type membrane so you will have to replace it.
