If you have changed the batteries the battery holder is probably corroded, take a piece of fune sand paper and clean the contacts, put the batteries in and spin them around to help them seat.

Wheelwriter 6, flashing #3 beeps 3 times. press any keys twice and it will type.


You batteries need to be replaced, and or the battery holder is
corroded. Should be removed and cleaned so acid does not leak inside the machine.

Batteries hold the margins and tabs when turned off, not real necessarry.

IBM Wheelwriter 6 powers up, then beeps. No lights, changed batteries. What is problem?


I have an instruction manual for IBM Wheelwriter 1000. The troubleshooting page in my manual for the machine coming on and having no lights is to make sure the cord is securely plugged into the typewriter and the wall or power strip and to switch the machine off and back on. Mine has a power saving mode where the lights go off after a while to enter power saving mode. I only need to touch a key to turn it back on.
Hope this helps - Cindy

How do i use the memory function on my ibm wheelwriter 6?


Before we start turn it on after it completes is power on just the #1 light should be lit this says the batteries are OK. If they flash replace the batteries and clean the holder.
To store hold the store key while entering an address 1 - 99, type info then press store again.
To play press play with the address.

How to express a loss as a gain in dB?


Decibel is what sound is rated in.

The sound level is expressed as a line.

0 in the middle.
Negative values are to the left, Positive values to the right.

Less DB rating to the Left, more DB to the Right.

Anything above the 0 is louder. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, etc.
Anything below the 0 is not as loud, -1, -2, -3, -4, -5, -6, etc.

It would be correct to state a 6 DB loss as -6DB.

Regards,
joecoolvette

How do you re-print on an IBM Wheelwriter 6?


First be sure the batteries are good, when you power up it does the routine the only light lit should be "1". if not replace the batteries and clean the contacts in the holder.

There are 3 keys on the L. dide of the keyboard store, play and del.
To store hold the store while selecting an address 01 - 99, release the store key, type info, press store again. To play press play and the address, del works the same way.
If the batteries are bad info will be lost when turned off.

Check in the area where the printwheel is installed for paper or other debris. If it does the same thing with the printwheel out then it is probably a printwheel sensor.
