Question about Lexmark Wheelwriter 3 Typewriter
I have an older Wheelwriter 3 that does not type the correct characters. This is only a problem with the character keys - the margin set keys, carriage return, correction, and backspace keys all work correctly. For example, when pressing the 'a' key, it will type a lowercase 'n', but when holding shift or with the caps lock on, it will type an uppercase 'J'. All of the character keys do this, and they are consistent in the characters that are typed.
If you have another printwheel try that, if you still have the trouble try blowing out the area where it is in stalled. If that fails turn the machine off then back on, after it completes the POR mark the printwheel with some white out, repeat the POR see if the mark is in the same place, if it isin't you probably have a selection plate problem.

Turn machine off, unplug machine and remove batteries, for at least 30 secounds.
try different printwheel, if available.
if this doesn't work, seek proffesional help.
