Open the upper cover, remove the platen (roller) there is a latct on each side that has to be pressed down, after the platen is out thetre are two latches one on each dide just inside the the sides of the case pull them to the front, flip the margins inside and lift the case, give the motor a little push, if it starts get a can of WD40 and spray everything inside the T/W that moves.

Shut off won't turn back on


how long have you waited since it shut off? it may be overheating. if you've waited for a while and it still won't power up, you may need to test the power supply. if you don't have a power supply tester and most people don't you can remove it from the case and take it to any pc shop. they may charge you a couple bucks but most shops won't do that. if it's bad it will need replaced obviously, if it's not let us know :)

Lost our manual for our IBM Wheelwriter 6 Series II. We don't remember how to store information. Can you help us?


Press and hold down "Store" while you type the number you would like to store the information in ( 1 through 99).
The "Store" light will blink and then the printwheel will spin.
When the "Store" light comes on solid you may start typing.

To end the store operation simply press and release the Store key. The Store light will turn off and the printwheel will spin again.

To print the saved job press "Play" and the number you used.

(Note: there are batteries inside the ribbon area of the typewriter that should be replaced every year (AA batteries) If they are missing or dead, the stored jobs will dissappear when the typewriter is turned off.

A copy of the operator's guide can be found here:

Shut off itself


sounds like you might have an auto overvoltage shutdown circuit kicking in. The hivoltage goes to high and the monitoring circuit auto shuts down. More than likely trouble is in hivoltage circuitry. If you have a transformer that will allow you to bring up the set slowly without shutting down and you can look to see what's happening.

Shuttle X PC - HD + Power LEDs briefly illuminate, no boot.


It sounds like you have a bad power supply. It will store up a very small amount of energy (enough to run some LED lights) but not enough to power up the system. That's where I would look. If that is not the problem, then I would look to the capacitors on your motherboard. Good Luck!

Types wrong characters


If the typewriter is typing letters or symbols that you do not type, it is usually because the Pitch Selector is set to "PS". The pitch selector is on the left hand side and has the numbers 10,12, 15 and PS. Place the selector on 10 or 12 and you will be OK.
Also, check to make sure your printwheel is installed properly. Remove it and put it back in to make sure.

Another thing you can try is to clear the memory. To do this, turn off the machine. Place a piece of paper in the machine sideways. Hold down the MAR REL key and while holding it down, turn on the machine. Wait 2 seconds, then let go of the key. The typewriter will start typing. Shut the machine off after about 15 seconds. Then turn it on as usual. This will clear the typewriter's memory and unexpected charaters should not happen anymore.
