The IBM Wheelwriter 1000 won't grab the paper I put into it!

I try to put the paper into the typewriter. However: the bar that the wheels, that accept the paper-feed will not grab the paper that I try to put into it! Why?* (I even tried lifting the blue cartridge from the holder and still could not get it to go in.) Why can't I do this? HELP!

There are a few possibilities.
first be sure the paper release lever on the top left side is to the rear, if it is push firmly down on the platen (blacl rubber roller) they do work themselves out. If the platen isn't turning you may have a board problem.

The wheelwriters do not use a "ball element". They use a printwheel. You can find many different typestyles on ebay or amazon.

No, the printwheels are the same for all Wheelwriters. Make sure the letters face the roller when you put it in (pull the print hammer assy back and check for paper clips, ribbon pieces, etc. first).
