IBM Wheelwriter 6 Problem

Last week the Wheelwriter was working correctly, however, today the following has occurred.

The typewirter turns on; the cartrige spins moves slightly to the right and back to the full left position.

The little red lights on the bottom right of the keyboard (1, 1 1/2, 2) constantly blink.

The keyboard does not cause the wheelwriter to print.
Seems frozen in left return position.

Any help would be appreciated.

The lights blinking indicates an error code, that mean a keyboard error or posibly a problem in the start up procedure. This is a problem that would have to be solved in a repair shop.

Some times when they all blink it means it needs batteries.
Or the connections are in the plug or battery box are corroded
