Tip & How-To about Lexmark Wheelwriter 1000 Typewriter

WW1000 senses no keyboard of wrong ketboard.

The rt. keyboard connector has 7 connectors bussed together some of them become open. Cut a piece of foil wide enough to cover just those connectors and slide it down into the plug over just those 7 connections and this save replacing the keyboard.

When I turn the typewriter on it beeps about 3 times and the line spacing 1 and 2 are flashing, but it won't type or do anything. What can I try to do?


Tour key board is bad. You can try this.
The right keyboard connector has a group of 7 connectors bussed together cut a piece of heavy foil that width and slide it into the side of the plug to the front of the T/W covering just the 7 connectors.
I've done this many times and it holds up very well.

Sounds like a keyboard problem, try unpluging the key board if the condition stay the same its bad, yoy can replace it or try this.

The rt. connector has seven of the connections on the rt. bussed together, wrap a piece of foil over the seven connections this should solve the problem.
BE SURE TO JUMPER ONLY THE CONNECTORS THAT ARE JUMPED ON THE RIBBON CONNECTOR!!

Sounds like a keyboard problem. Check the connectors to be sure they are fully pluged in, if this isn't the problem try putting a piece of foil over the rt hand keybourd connector contacts that are bussed together (seven I believe) replug the ketboard and test. BE SURE TO BUSS ONLY THE CONNECTORS THAT ARE BUSSED ON THE CONNECTOR!!

You probably hav a keyboard problem, unplug the keyboard and turn on t/w, if the condition is the same it's the keyboard.

The right connector has a groug of 6 etchings bussed together, wrap a piece of foil over the connectors and plug in and test.

BE SURE TO ONLY JUMPER THE 6 BUSSED CONNECTORS!

You have a keyboard problem. The rt. connector has 7 contacts bussed together, wrap a piece of foil over that portion of the connector and plug it back in. BE SURE TO COVER ONLY THE 7 BUSSED CONNECTORS!
