Check to see if the ribbon is lifting up, if not there is a black gear on the right side of the printer wiggle it back and forth until it will move. If it is lifting put a multi part form a nd see if it prints on the copies if not the plastic on the print solinoid is probably broken they are available but a bit trigky to install.

If your machine is not printing properly:
1.Examine the ribbon cartridge to make sure it has not run out of Ribbon. If your ribbon appears silver or gray, install a new cartridge.
2. Ensure the black lever in the center of the carriage is pressed to the rear, towards the paper. If not press it to the rear to lock the Daisy Wheel into place.
3. With the typewriter turned off, press and hold down the "CODE" Key, the "SHIFT" Key, and the "TAB" Key.
4.Restore power with all three Keys depressed.
5.When the machine sounds a beep tone, release all three keys.
6.The carrier will move to the left indicating that the memory has been cleared and the machine has been reset.
7.Try typing.
If the problem continues, your unit will need servicing. You can locate a Brother Authorized Service Center in your area:

We have an old IBM Wheelwriter 6 Series II typewriter, but no manual. Need to know how do we program the typewriter to store information for forms that need to be typed that all have the same info?


First thing be sure the batteries are good. When it powers up it should beep once and the 1 light will come on. If that dosen't happen change the batt. and be sure the contacts aren't corroded.

There are 3 keys on the left side that say store, play and delete, hold the store while typing an address 01 - 99, release store, type info press store again. To print hold play and typa address. Delete works the same way.

New ribbon and can't get it to type


did you make sure that the end pieces are engaged into the brackets in the part facing you. Also if the correction tape is not loaded onto the ribbon prior to installing it, it will do that too.

Hope this helps, Denise

Hi:

There is no manual way to change the pitch on any IBM Wheelwriter. If you want a different pitch you need to change the printwheel.
