Was working fine yesterday morning.  Yesterday afternoon it started beeping (5 or 6 times) when you turn it on and that is all it will do now.

Do any lights stay on or blink if so make sure the printwheel is in correctly, make sure the ribbon and correction tape cassetts are installed correctly, Turn the typewriter off wait 30 seconds then turn it back on if the same thing happens try another printwheel if the same thing happens take in in for repairs.

IWhen i turned it on it only types half the letters/numbers etc

If it is only typing the top half of the letters the platen may not be fully seated in the side frames, push down firmly on both ends of the platen it should snap into place.

I have an IMP Personal Wheelwriter 2 by Lexmark, my assistant moved it yesterday and now I have blinking green lights on the line spacing #'s. Please help

First check to be sure the printwheel is properly installed, then try turning it on while moving the flat keyboard connectors, if this starts it see my tip under WW1000.

IBM WheelWriter 10 Series II not functioning.

Could be many things. Take off the case and look for parer clips, staples or other debris on or under the PC board or in the power supply.

It sounds like the keyboard is bad. Check the two bflat connectors from the keyboard to the PC board, if they are connected ok a keyboard is in order.

try turning the machine off put a SMALL amount of oil on the large round rod running across the typewriter manually push the print head left and right a few times to see if it will loosen up. The problem is usually caused be drying oil you may consider having it serviced by a pro.
