Many possibilities; Check to be sure the printwheel is properly installed, then try turning it on while moving the flat keyboard connectors around if it works see my tip under WW1000.

I have a Wheelwriter 6 and the Lang light is on, (I don't know what I did) How do I get it off?


I believe you push the language key while holding down the code key or just push the language key by itself.

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.

The Wheelwriter 30 is typing different letters than we are submitting. I have checked and the language key has not been initiated.


If the lang light on the right isn't on then you must have a keyboard problem but you can try thus.
Turn the T/W off, remove the batteries, wait for 30 seconds, try it. This reset everything to defaults.

THIS WILL ALSO CLEAR THE MEMORY!!!

Hi:

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.

The print solenoid has the plastic cap on the end broken or desintagrated. i fix this all the time. also make sure you didnt turn on the lang feature. that will keep your carrier in one spot for certain foreign symbols. to clear it hold down the features key next to the space bar and hit the lang key with the features key depressed.
