On the L. side of the keyboard there are 3 keys store, play & del. To store hold store and put an adress 1 - 99, release store, type info. when finished press store again. To print press play and the address.
Be sure the batteries are good and the holder is clean.

IBM Wheelwriter 6 powers up, then beeps. No lights, changed batteries. What is problem?


I have an instruction manual for IBM Wheelwriter 1000. The troubleshooting page in my manual for the machine coming on and having no lights is to make sure the cord is securely plugged into the typewriter and the wall or power strip and to switch the machine off and back on. Mine has a power saving mode where the lights go off after a while to enter power saving mode. I only need to touch a key to turn it back on.
Hope this helps - Cindy

First try a little WD40 on the print solenoid plunger, If that dosen't help you probably have a broken plastic print solenoid cap. We vsell replacements for 20.00 including instructions and shipping.

To record you hold down"store" and hit "1" that opens the storage unit. Type what you want to keep. when finished press "store" again. that closes that storage unit. When you want to play that , hold "play" and tap "1" that storage unit will play out. You can repeat this in storage areas "1" to "99" until the memory is full. To delete the storage unit, hold "delete" and hit a paticular storage area, such as "1" all will be deleted.

No user manual for my IBM Wheelwriter 6


You can download the IBM Wheelwriter 6 series II 6784 Operator 's Guide from Lexmark site (look for "IBM Typewriters" in the bottom of the page):
http://images.lexmark.com/publications/pdfs/2007/index/en.html

If all you remember is the # 80, maybe what you have to do is insert the the paper in the machine and then press [PLAY] + the number 80 and, then, each time the playback stops at a stop point, type the variable text to be inserted (check the " Playing back a repetitive letter" section of the manual).
You can also get a print "directory" of all text stored (check the "Advanced Storage" chapter).
Hope this helps.

Changing Font Size


To change the font size you need to install a different printwheel. There are places on the internet where you can order one along with an owners manual just do a search for the make and model.
