Question about IBM Wheelwriter 30 Typewriter
I installed a new ribbon thinking the old one could have exceeded its life span because the ribbon stayed in one spot. The same problem persisted even with a new ribbon. It appears something popped loose (a plastic piece about 3/4'' in length with 6 small holes). I have not been able to find where the piece fits. The little wheel on bottom right of the cartridge can be rotated manually. The typewriter is handy to have around but not worth spending money for shop repair. Can you help? Is there a phone number I can call for assistance?
It appears that the ribbon feed connector has come loose from the ribbon feed motor. On top where the ribbon sits you will see where the ribbon couples to the ribbon feed motor on the right side. Look on the bottom of the ribbon and you will see where the ribbon couples with the ribbon deck feed motor. Directly under that ribbon deck is the ribbon feed motor. It sound like the cable came loose and it just needs to be plugged back into to motor.
