If the carrier moves across the paper but won't type the print solenoid cap is probably broken, they are aval. but a little tricky to install.

I have a Wheelwriter 6 and the Lang light is on, (I don't know what I did) How do I get it off?


I believe you push the language key while holding down the code key or just push the language key by itself.

IBM Wheelwriter 6 typewriter. The print wheel does not move when typing and acts as if in stencil mode


From your posting it sounds like you have cracked plastic print solenoid cap. We sell them for 20.00 with instructions.

IBM Wheelwriter 6 Typewriter - while typing, characters just quit printing on paper. Checked ribbon, machine etc. Everything checked out?? What could be the problem.


It is probably the print solenoid that has a broken cap. I have seen a few advertisers that sell the repair kit with instructions. It is fairly simple to repair.

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.

If you have changed the batteries the battery holder is probably corroded, take a piece of fune sand paper and clean the contacts, put the batteries in and spin them around to help them seat.

Re-print full?


The reprint automatically stores as you type. I dont believe it can be turned off, however if you use the SAPI feature it clears and starts over. SAPI Semi Automatic Paper Insertion. When inserting paper pull the rt. upper bail arm all the way forward it will indert paper to preset position and clear reprint memory.
