Problem: Lexmark Wheelwriter 3 Typewriter Problem

I am typing a document and I accidentally press the CODE instead of SPACEBAR and when I started typing again it doesn't type anymore, I tried to change ribbon, turn it off and turn it back on, it is still the same.

Change keyboard mode. Not typing correct letters

Hold down the "code" key, the one to the left of the spacebar that says "CODE" on it, and hit the "L" key (the one that says (Lang) on it. Should be back to normal.

Hi, After I did this fix (which did succeed in unlocking the keyboard), I found...

The rt. keyboard connector has 7 connectors bussed together some of them become open. Cut a piece of foil wide enough to cover just those connectors and slide it down into the plug over just those 7 connections and this save replacing the keyboard.

Turn the sound off of IBM Wheelwriter 3.0 Series II

The only sound you can turn off is the optional spell check feature which is done by holding down the code button (left of the spacebar) and then hitting the number 1. Any other beeps cannot be turned off.

Make sure the typewriter is not in Lang mode. If the Lang light is lit up then press and hold the code key to the left of the spacebar while pressing the x key. This will cause the Lang light to go out.
