How to change the daisywheel?


Description of Solution 200000038015

Removing the cassette daisy wheel

To remove the cassette daisy wheel, pull the motor lock lever toward you to release it, then grasp the "ear" of the cassette daisy wheel between your thumb and forefinger and simply pull it out.

NOTE:  The cassette ribbon does not need to be removed in order to remove the cassette daisy wheel.

Inserting the new cassette daisy wheel

Grasping the "ear" of the new cassette daisy wheel between your thumb and forefinger, slit it into the cassette guide slot and slide it in as far as it will go.

Now push the motor lock lever back toward the platen until it clicks into place.  Do not force the lever.  If you have any difficulty, recheck the cassette daisy wheel to ensure that it is properly set and try again.

NOTE: Be sure that the "ear" of the cassette daisy wheel is to the right during insertion.  Putting it in backwards can damage both the cassette daisy wheel and the motor mechanism.

If the cassette daisy wheel is not properly locked into position, the characters will not be properly typed.
