Wheelwriter 3500 KYBD 099

We have an IBM Wheelwriter 3500 typewriter and it's not typing the right letter/number/symbol as the key I hit. There is a "KYBD 099" on the screen that I've never seen before.

I can't find the manual for it....can anyone help? PLEASE?!?!

THANKS!

    Only the "a" works correct. All of the other characters type something different than what I hit on the keyboard. I made sure the wheel is correctly aligned, and I checked that the keyboard cables are plugged in.

Check the ywo keyboard connectors to be sure they are plugged in fully, if they are then press & hold the code key, press & rel the "L" key type 001 then release the code key.

This will put you into the english keyboard mode. To cure the problem you need a keyboard.

    To HANK2471;



    You didn't say what kind of a T/W it is, if it's an IBM WW try code l or x depending the age of the machine.

When I couldn't find any other solution, I got a vacuum and cleaned out all of the inside, and then I tried changing the batteries. Would you believe then it worked? I don't think the batteries should affect the keyboard (would they?) ... so I'm left to believe that the good cleaning made the difference.

Stuck in a Mode


http://www.scantracker.com/KansasCityrepairs.html

These guys are repairers so they may have extra copies.
IBM's Typewriter's site also has manual for sale for less than $20.

The typewriter seems to have a bad ribbon cartridge or a bad typing wheel. Take each one out and try to see if it will type normal. If one does, then you know to replace it.

Problem with striking


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!!
