The hammer is not striking the paper


The daisy wheel may not be locked in properly. 


1. Pull back on the lock lever and lift out the daisy wheel.


2. Inspect the daisy wheel for damage and then reinstall it into the carriage.  Be careful to keep the tab in the upper right corner.


3. Push the lever towards the platen until you hear it latch into place.


If the hammer still does not strike the paper, the typewriter may require service.
