When you power up what happens? What lights are lit, are thy flashing, are there beebs and how many? These are error codes and are important.

This problem is most often caused in typewriter models IBM / Lexmark 30, 35, 3500, 50, 5000, 70, and 7000. Easiest way to solve this is to remove the batteries, make sure you have the typewriter turned off. Re-install the batteries, turn the typewriter on and the problem should be solved.

SOURCE: Types a few characters then stops typing and just beeps...

Perhaps you have the R. margin set at that point. Try resetting it at the R. end.

We have ibm wheelwriter 3000. When typing it makes a beeping noise. Tried to release margins, but still beeps


If it beeps on every key stroke try code "S" If it beeps once in a while it may be the spell check code "1" will turn that off. If it always beebs at the same place the R. margin is probably set there. Space all the way to the R. and press R. mar key.

When we press any button (eg. space bar, return, any of the letters or numbers to type anything), the typewriter just makes a beeping sound, and won't move or do anything. How do we get it to work again?


Try reinstalling the printwheel, Cheek to see if any keys are stuck down. On the R. side of the R. side is the switch for forms insertion they do break. remove one of the wires.

I have an IBM Wheelwriter Typewriter Model 674X and it keeps beeping at me when I type. Why is it beeping and/or how do you make it stop?


the beeping is the spellcheck option.. you just have to quit spelling wrong! Just Kidding. The dictionary is limited. You can turn it off by holding the 'code' key while pressing the key that says 'spell' on the top row.

Beeping sound when powering unit on


Have you simply pushed the carriage back to the middle? If it is like the ML100 (it looks the same) you can just push it over ...with the pwoer off. Then put in you new ribbon. And this time, when you turn it on, it is the new ribbon that hits a switch on the underside of the keyboard, located to the upper left. If you do not have a ribbon installed, it will travel all the way to the left, and beep, beep, beep, beep. ,,,, The switch is hit with the ribbon housing.
