Tell me the pattern. Are they flashing or on solid? Do you hear beeps. Count the beeps. Is it a WW 30?

IBM Wheelwriter #5 - The line space keys are flashing and the typewriter will not work. I unplugged it and replaced the batteries.


There are a lot of possibilities. Which lights are flashing? In sequence? Beeps? How many?

These all are codes to the problem.

The line spacing on my typewriter is on 2. I need it on 1


Hold the code key down and press the key on the right side that says line space in green on it, the lights will change with each depression.

How do you set up (or turn off) double spacing on an IBM Wheelwriter typewriter?


The older models have a key on the R. side that says line space, press that and the lights will change to indicate spacing.
On the later ones you must use the code key with with the line space key in green on the R. side.

IBM Wheelwriter 5 nonresponsive, line spacing lights flashing


A lot of possibilities Which lights, beeps, how many? Check for debris in and around the printwheel, look for any obstructions under the carrier, put a few drops of oil on the silver shaft the carrier ride on.

Good Luck

Flashing lights


You have a keyboard problem. The rt. connector has 7 contacts bussed together, wrap a piece of foil over that portion of the connector and plug it back in. BE SURE TO COVER ONLY THE 7 BUSSED CONNECTORS!

Typewriter won't type


Yes, those batteries do need to be changed. They are probably corroded. clean up all he corrosion, reinstall the batteries and give it a try!

Will not type


If the 1, 2, and 3 line space keys are flashing in order, you need to change the two AA batteries that are located inside your typewriter.
