I believe a 215 code is a bad printwheel sensor. You need a tech.

IBM Wheelwriter 30 Series II is showing an error code of 215 with a box with a slash through it and am unable to type on it


215 is a Print Wheel error. Remove the print wheel, look for debris in the P/W area, if you have a compressed air source blow the P/W area out. If these don't work the P/W sensor is probably bad.

I have an IMB Wheelwriter 30 Series II. When I turned on the machine this morning it made a couple of ringing sounds and then on the display it reads a square with the number 215. Nothing else works on...


215 is a printwheel error. Remove the P/W, look for dirt or debris in that area, if you have a compressed air source blow out the P/W area. If these fail the P/W led sensor is probably bad.
and you most likely need a tech.

My IBM Wheelwriter 30 Series II has a message of a box and an X in it and then the numbers 215 can someone tell me how can fix this?


Check to be sure the printwheel to be sure it is properly installed, check for debris in the P/W area, If these are OK then the sensor is probably bad.

The 121 indicates a keyboard problem, See my tip under ww1000 also check the two flat connectors from the KB to the PC mboard.

IBM wheelwriter 25 message: a box and diagonal line thru it and the number 215.


Code 215 is a printwheel error. Remove the P/W and look for debris in that area, if you have some compressed air source blow this area out, if this dosen't do it the P/W sensor or the LED are probably going bad.

The book says turn the T/W off wait 30 seconds and restart, if condition returns call for service. However you might try removing the batteries and unplugging the machine waiting a few minutes and restarting. CAUTION ALL THE MEMORY WILL BE LOST!

215 indicates a printwheel error. Remove the printwheel, look for debris in the P/W cartridge and the area where it sits blow out the P/W area with air if the problem dosen't go away the sensor is probably bad.
