Three beeps and the space lights blinking means the batteries are bad replace them and be sure the holder is clean.

Turn the sound off of IBM Wheelwriter 3.0 Series II

The only sound you can turn off is the optional spell check feature which is done by holding down the code button (left of the spacebar) and then hitting the number 1. Any other beeps cannot be turned off.

either the carriage home position sensor flag is broken or the daisy wheel can't find home. try removing daisy wheel and re-installit. turn unit on and see if daisy wheel spins if it does then the carriage home position sensor has a problem.

Check in the area where the printwheel is installed for paper or other debris. If it does the same thing with the printwheel out then it is probably a printwheel sensor.

Typewriter only beeps and lights blink. Nothing else.

the beeping and the lights are error codes, meaning the machine will need repair

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.
