Had this same problem. Had 2 old Canon's that did this- figured it was just due to their age. I bought a brand new Sharp and it only printed symbols out of the box. It occurred to me that it might possibly be the ac/dc adaptor cord I was using. Due to not wanting to deal with the tangled wires behind my desk, I just used the same cord since it seemed to fit the new one. I plugged in the new cord from the Sharp box and all my problems were solved. The new cord even got the old Canon's printing!

Sounds like the printwheels are out of time. Sorta of major repairs. gears on side of printer have to be lined up in proper areas. there are small black arrows on the gears. Best bet is look at a working machine and try to line up. Machine may not be worth the time unless you jsut want to try it. Sharp uses the same printers in many different models.

Pressing will insert a separator into a number entry such as a code, date, etc. Separators are displayed as a period and dashes but printed as periods. MEMORY + KEY / PRINT ON / OFF KEY: Pressing selects print mode or non-print mode. Cause the calculator to operate in a display / print or display only mode, depending upon the calculator’s present state. “P” on the display: Print mode. “NP” on the display: Non-print mode. MEMORY – KEY / DECIMAL SELECTION KEY: Pressing sets the number of decimal places in the result. “F” on the display: The answer is displayed in the floating decimal system. “3, 2, 1, 0” on the display: Presets the number of decimal places in the answer. “A” on the display (Add mode): The decimal point in addition and subtraction entries is automatically positioned to the 2nd digit from the lowest digit of entry number.
