SOURCE: ONLY TYPES TOP PART OF THE LETTER IBM WHEELWRITER 30 SERIES II

The most common problem is the platen (black roller) gets out of position. Be sure the black latches are aligned wuth the side frames then push down firmly on the ends of the platen it should snap into place.

IBM Wheelwriter 30 series II - prints only half a letter


If it types only the top half yhe platen is probably not all the way in. Make sure the 2 black latches are lined up with the side frames then press down firmly on both sides of the platen.
