Your probable problem is either the power supply or function board. The fact that the lights go out usually means it is not a keyboard problem. Does the machine beep and if so, how many times?

IBM Wheelwriter 6 powers up, then beeps. No lights, changed batteries. What is problem?

I have an instruction manual for IBM Wheelwriter 1000. The troubleshooting page in my manual for the machine coming on and having no lights is to make sure the cord is securely plugged into the typewriter and the wall or power strip and to switch the machine off and back on. Mine has a power saving mode where the lights go off after a while to enter power saving mode. I only need to touch a key to turn it back on.
Hope this helps - Cindy

IBM Wheelwriter 1000 Lexmark - Machine beeps and Lights 1,2 & 3 blink. Replaced batteries and still doesn't work.

This is an error code that the carriage or printwheel can't find it's home position. About the only thing you can try is to replace the printwheel or inspect it for bent or boken spokes. If that does not fix it then you will need a tech to troubleshoot problem.

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.

Lights blink and machine beeps

Check the flat connector that goes to the indicator lights the edge of the keyboard sometimes wears into itand causes a reset sequence.

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?
