Usually means the keyboard is bad. Check the keyboard connecdtions. Sometimes a real pain to remove and reinsert them. What lights are blinking?

Sounds like the keyboard is bad. You can try my tip under WW1000 or get the keyboard rebuilt @ Geo. Beyers Co. 800392-8085.

How many beeps? Which Lights? Blinking together or sequentially? These will help to determine the problem.

IBM Wheelwriter #5 - The line space keys are flashing and the typewriter will not work. I unplugged it and replaced the batteries.


There are a lot of possibilities. Which lights are flashing? In sequence? Beeps? How many?

These all are codes to the problem.

Check in the area where the printwheel is installed for paper or other debris. If it does the same thing with the printwheel out then it is probably a printwheel sensor.

A lot of possibilities Which lights, beeps, how many? Check for debris in and around the printwheel, look for any obstructions under the carrier, put a few drops of oil on the silver shaft the carrier ride on.

Good Luck

Will not type


If the 1, 2, and 3 line space keys are flashing in order, you need to change the two AA batteries that are located inside your typewriter.
