    It is the Print Density Selector.

    Quoting from the manual: "Your typewriter has a function that prints
    samples of text at each of the print density settings. This allows selection
    of density that best suits your needs.

    1 Insert sheet of paper.

    2 Press and hold CODE and SHIFT, then press C. Typewriter prints test
    pattern as below

    1 TStar 2TStar 3TStar
    1 2 3

    The second line shows to what extent printouts are erased at each setting
    when making corrections.

    3 Choose density setting 1 - 3 that corresponds to the desired print
    density" End of quoted material.

    Hope you can make sense of that.

    Yes found this thing in a Second Hand shop, great for my Wife to practice typing, managed to get
    some IR-100 Ribbons, but need a PSU for it, using a 6v battery at the moment.

    Its seems that its MODE/SHIFT C..

    So thanks again..

    It prints 20 cps. 1 ABCD 2 ABCD 3 ABCD
    1 ABCD 2 ABCD 3 ABCD this line is light..
    40 cps 1 ABCD 2 ABCD 3 ABCD

    That is what I get with MODE/SHIFT C..

    Yes - they're good little typewriters, especially with the convenience of
    batteries, which was a bit rare when these came out. I hung on to mine from
    years ago before having laptops to cart around, and still use it
    occasionally when needing to complete preprinted forms. I have the complete
    manual so if you get stuck just post here and I'll help if possible, but
    play with it for a while and I'm sure you'll sort everything out.
