I believe 215 is a printwheel problem, try cleaning out the area where the P/W is inserted.

IBM Wheelwriter 30 Series II is showing an error code of 215 with a box with a slash through it and am unable to type on it


215 is a Print Wheel error. Remove the print wheel, look for debris in the P/W area, if you have a compressed air source blow the P/W area out. If these don't work the P/W sensor is probably bad.

I have an IMB Wheelwriter 30 Series II. When I turned on the machine this morning it made a couple of ringing sounds and then on the display it reads a square with the number 215. Nothing else works on...


215 is a printwheel error. Remove the P/W, look for dirt or debris in that area, if you have a compressed air source blow out the P/W area. If these fail the P/W led sensor is probably bad.
and you most likely need a tech.

WHEN DEPRESSING THER SPACE BAR, THE PRINT WHEEL BACKSPACES INSTEAD OF ADVANCING TO THE RIGHT. I'M ALSO GETTING A 215 CODE.


You are probably in centering mode code "C" should get you out of that. 215 coce is not sensing the printwheel, remove theP/W, look for debris in that area, if you have some canned air blow the area out. If the problem persists you will need a printwheel sensor.

215 is a printwheel error. Remove the printwheel, look for debris in that area, if you have a compressed air source blow out the P/W area, reinstall the P/W. If you still have the problem the LED sensor is probably bad.

215 is a pwintwheel not being detected. Try re installing the P/W look for debris in that area, if you have a compressed air source blow out that area. If these fail tou will need a P/W sensor, LED or both.

Error code 215


215 is pwintwheel error. First check to be sure the wheel is fully seated and spins when T/W is turned on. If it does then remove it and look for debris in the area where it sits.

215 indicates a printwheel error. Remove the printwheel, look for debris in the P/W cartridge and the area where it sits blow out the P/W area with air if the problem dosen't go away the sensor is probably bad.
