    The two ribbons is secured properly; however when I lift up the keyboard I see a white cable ribbon that is only attach to the board a few inches right of the center point. The other end is hanging loose, I see two white connection to the far left of the board nothing is attach. None of the 4 led lights on the far right of the keyboard comes on.

Check the keyboard connections. Open the top cover and look just below from the top. You will see two ribbon cables. Make sure they are fully inserted. Are any of the keyboard lights flashing?

    You have to reconnect the cables. In the four corners unmderneath you will see slots. Push a small screwdriver up inside and gently pry the release pin out aqnd at the same time lift the cover. Do this for all four corners and remove the complete cover asm. You can now reach the cables and connect them.

Wheelwriter 1000 beeps when I try to type!

Could be a few things, board, power supply, keyboard or printer.
But there are some things you can check, remove the printwheel and look for debris in that area, unplug and replug the keyboard, if you are really adventurious remove the cover and keyboard and look for paper clips or staples on or under the pc board.
