Question about IBM Wheelwriter 30 Typewriter

IBM Personal Wheelwriter 2

I got a client with a bad power cord on a Wheelwriter 2. Is that a standard size power cord they use thats 2 prong?

If thats the case then any three prong d shaped cord will work. The typewriter will ignore the ground prong?

I have a IBM Personal Wheelwriter 2 that when shut off, it lights up, but then shuts off. Sometimes it stays lit up, so we try not shutting off, but it's a problem.

I have never replaced an off on switch on a personal WW but it sure sounds like it is bad. You can buy one for 15.00 from us.
