My ibm wheelwriter beeps 1 time when i tab


Does anything else work? It is possible your right margin is set to close to the left margin. Try tabbing all the way to the right, set the right margin, hit the return and then hit the tab. If it beeps and goes all the way to the right, try setting some tab stops and retry the test.

When typing a card the left margin is okay but when I continue to type across the card it stops and I can't get it to go any further. Is their a way to change the right margin since no matter what I do it...


First spray some WD40 on the silver shaft that the carrier slides on. The with the machine off slide the carrier back and forth it should move freely if not look for debris inside the T/W.
you should be able to type thru the R. margin it only beeps.

Right margin


Hi:

On all IBM Wheelwriters the right margin can always be typed through. The only indication you will get when you reach the right margin is a beep tone. To set the right margin, space to the desired point and depress the right margin key once.

How to change the pitch?


Here ya go...

Margins and Tabs
Margins and tabs for both Type Mode and Mem Mode are set in Type
Mode, but can be changed in Mem Mode when text is recalled for
editing. Margins and tabs are set using the typing scale which appears
on the display in Type Mode. A blinking cursor indicates the typing
position. The letter “L” indicates your left margin setting. The letter “R”
indicates your right margin setting.
NOTE: In Mem Mode, the margins and tabs used when the text
is created will be saved with the text and recalled with it,
even if they have been changed.
Margins
In Type Mode, to signal that you are near the right margin, the
typewriter will beep 5 spaces before the margin. In Mem Mode, the text
will wrap automatically when you print.
Margins are preset depending on the pitch setting, which is the number
of characters per inch. They are:
10 Pitch 12 Pitch 15 Pitch
(Pica) (Elite) (Micro)
Left Margin 12 14 18
Right Margin 72 86 108
New margin settings remain until changed again.
1. Move the Mode Selector to Type. A typing scale appears on
the display.
2. Move the cursor using the Spacebar or Back Space to the desired left
margin setting on the scale.
3. Press Margin.
4. Move the cursor using the Spacebar to the desired right margin
setting on the typing scale.
5. Press Code + Margin. A beep confirms each new margin setting.
6. You can change to Mem Mode, if desired.

Take care,

Beeping IBM personal wheelwriter


It could be that the right hand margin is set very close to the left margin. Try spacing way over to the right side of the typewriter and resetting the right margin there.

Beeping problem


I would suspect that the right margin is set at that spot.
try moving the printhead to where you would like the right margin to be set, or all the way to the right if you don't need a r. mar., and hit 'R MAR'.
