We have a Wordsmith 100. When typing the w, r, t, y i, o, d, f, g, k, ", x, c,v, b, n, ;, / keys a symbol is typed which appears to be a combination of an enlongated { and a comma. Any ideas what is causing this?

Do you have a different printwhel to try? Also, make sure you have not activated any odd features by using the mode or features keys on the keyboard.

How to type @ symbol


I am not familiar with this particular keyboard, but it sounds like you are not finding that symbol (@) on the keyboard. On most keyboards it seems to be the shift of the "2" key (at the top of the keyboard, not on a separate number keypad). I checked keyboards from three manufacturers, and that was the case on all three. However, if that key is not working properly, you could define "(a)" or something similar to be auto-corrected to the "@" symbol. Finally, you could try typing the ASCII character by a keystroke combination such as Alt-0064. In MS Word, when I type that combination (make sure to use the numeric keypad, not the number row keys), I get the "@" symbol. The same works in many programs.

My smith corona model ka11 is typing symbols instead of the letters. Can you help me get this corrected?


Printwheel in wrong. release the printwheel, make sure the pin is aligned with the slot on the hub and snap it back in. The printwheel should spin, then home out to the left margin, then it should be ok. If not try it again.Check to make sure no pedals on the printwheel are bent.
Hopes this helps!
