On the WheelWriter series, sometimes the platen may pop out of position, causing only half the letters to print. If this is the case, easially solved... Using the left and right platen knobs, firmly push down to lock it back in place. Hope this helps....MediaMan

wo things first spray a little WD40 on the silver shaft that the carrier slides on, if that dosen't work you have to get some lube on nthe carrier motor bearings located on the loweright rear under the case.
The front one can be accessed from inside the T/W the rear you have to fish the straw thrfu the case.
