Storing key strokes on IBM Wheelwriter 6, Series II

This typewriter was donated to our company but without the manual. It appears that I can store keystrokes for things that I type over and over, but I don't know how to store them. Can you help?

On the L. side of the keyboard are 3 keys store, play & delete.
To store hold the store key and type an address 1 - 99, release the store key and type info. press store again. To play hold play type address, release play. to delete follow same with the delete key. Be sure the batteries are good or you will lose data on power off.

Your print solenoid probably has a broken cap. There are some companies that sell the "kit" with instructions on how to replace the cap.

Data will not stay stored


I assume that the data clears when you turn off the T/W, if so the batteries need changed. Depending on the age of the machine they are either on the R. or L. on the base just beyond the keyboard, they will probably be corroded so be sure to clean the holder contacts.

WHEELRITER 6 LOST MEMORY.


When it turns on do the lights blink and go out on the first key touched? If so the battery hilder is probably corroded. Clean the contacts with sand paper. When this is solved you can start storing again. The data is lost and can't be retrieved.

try turning the machine off put a SMALL amount of oil on the large round rod running across the typewriter manually push the print head left and right a few times to see if it will loosen up. The problem is usually caused be drying oil you may consider having it serviced by a pro.
