Lexmark wheelwriter 3500 indicates code 215.

215 is print wheel error. Remove the printwheel look for dirt and debris in that area, if you have a compressed air source blow thw P/W area out. If these don't work the printwheel sensor is likely bad.

IBM Wheelwriter 3500.

Does the display show aP/W nomber other than 001?
If it does hold the code key,press and release the "L" key type 001 release the "L" key this sets the keyboard to U.S., if this works the cure is to replace the keyboard.

Check the ywo keyboard connectors to be sure they are plugged in fully, if they are then press & hold the code key, press & rel the "L" key type 001 then release the code key.

This will put you into the english keyboard mode. To cure the problem you need a keyboard.

Try pressing and holding code key while pressing "L" release "L"
and type 001 release the code key. If this solves the trouble but it comes back on the next power up the keyboard is bad.
