Question about Lexmark Wheelwriter 3 Typewriter

2 Answers

I have an IBM Wheelwriter 3, several years old. One day it was woking fine and now it seems as tho it is not getting any power. Will not do anything. I have checked all plugs and they do work. I did notice there are two batteries (AA I think) inside the cover. Could that be the problem. If so haw do I remove them to replace them. If not can you give me some ideas.

IF you know that you are getting power, then it is a dead power supply. That will cost an average of $75 to 85 dollars to repair. Fine a local repair shop. I am in Clearwater Florida.

Depending on how old this is it may have a fuse in the power supply. If this is a WW3 there should not be batteries.

You may have a very old correction tape or ribbon, a non correctable ribbon or it isn't properly installed

IBM Wheelwriter 30 series II - prints only half a letter


If it types only the top half yhe platen is probably not all the way in. Make sure the 2 black latches are lined up with the side frames then press down firmly on both sides of the platen.
