If you know how to remove the case check under the PC board for paper clips and staples.

Change left margin on IBM wheelwriter 2000


To change the left margin, hit the return button which will take you to the left margin. Hit the margin release lever (mar rel) and then the backspace button to go farther to the left and stop where you want the margin to be. Hit left margin and that is where it will then be set.

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.

Will not turn on. Is there a reset button?


I'm sorry, there is no reset button. It sounds like the power supply board has failed.This is becoming a common problem with all wheelwriters and it is simply caused by age. A local typewriter repairman should be able to get a power supply and install it.

My IBM Wheelwriter 2500 isn't typing at all.


Try a new printwheel, look for debris in the P/W area.

I have an IBM Wheelwriter Typewriter II. A week ago the typewriter worked fine before a move from Texas to the St. Louis. When I reconnected the machine and turned it on nothing seems to happen. No...


Sounds like a power supply or a connector came loose in transit. If you know how to remove the case look for staples, paper clips etc. on or around the power supply and PC board.

My IBM Selectric System 2000 Wheelwriter 6747/6747-2 has quit typing. The keys respond and the carriage moves but no type appears.


The plastic cap on the print solenoid is probably broken. We sell them with installation instructions for 20.00 including shipping. DickyO Cleveland Business Machines 216-241-0027

Need to reset all the margins on IBM Wheelwriter 10 Series II. The margin release button will not release the left margin.


The problem may be that the carrier is binding on return, put some light lube (WD40 works well) on the silver shaft that the carrier slides on.
