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.

There are a few possibilities. If only the tops are printing Press down on the platen to be sure it is fully seated in the side frame. The T/W may be in the overstrike ribbon mode Code period, comma or slash will get you out of that mode.

The ribbon is not moving for each new letter being typed. Its very slow so when you are typing a word it just keeps going over the same spot on the ribbon.


I'll try thisagain use the code key with one of these 3 keys ,.
. , or / this will take you out of the uverstrike ribbon mode.
