The print solenoid has a plastic cap it is probably broken. They are available but a little tricky to install.

I am only getting half of the letters, and it is stuck on del,typing how can I get it off delayed typing?


I'M assuming this is a wheelwriter 30 or similar. On the R. side of the keyboard is a key that says print mode press that and the dl prt will go off on the display. If you are only printing the tops of the letters the platen is probably not fully seated in the side frames press down firmly on both ends it should snap into place.

yes it was true that the cap was broken. temporarily, i just cut a piece of plastic from a spoon, same thickness as the cap then place it between the plunger and the solenoid. and now my wheelwriter is typing great! all letters are clear and much black in color. thanks for pointing where the cap was place. easy to find it.

My keyboard does not display the letters I am keying


Just a little help from you. Does it type the wrong letters or not type some letters at all? Is the display right and print wrong or viisa versa?

Reprint


On the L. side of the keyboard there are 3 keys store, play & delete. Press and hold the store key and type an address 01-99 release the store then type info., when complete touch store again.

To print hold play and type the address.

To clear use the del. key.

BE SURE YOUR BATTERIES ARE GOOD OR STORED INFO. WILL BE LOST ON POWER OFF.

IBM Wheelwriter 30 series II - prints only half a letter


If it types only the top half yhe platen is probably not all the way in. Make sure the 2 black latches are lined up with the side frames then press down firmly on both sides of the platen.
