Install lift off tape cartridge


Remove the ribbon by pushing the blue lever to the right and front of the ribbon. The correction tape cartridge is attached to the bottom
of the Printing ribbon. Depress the center of Printing ribbon to release the correction ribbon. Snap on a new one.

IBM Wheelwriter 6 - Ribbon doesn't lift high enough for the key that's pressed to print on paper. Ribbon advances OK.


If theribbon dosen't lift at all see if the black gear on the R. side of the printer will move, if not w3iggle it and it should free up they get tooth for tooth with the motor gear. If it only lifts partually thereis an adjustment on the roll that works with the black gear. BE SURE TO CHECK THGAT BTHE PLATEN IS FULLY SEATED IN THE VSIDE FRAMES THEY DO GET LOOSE!

My ribbon broke, I don' t know how to fix it.


The ribbon has 2 little (feet) on the rear of the cartridge they hook into the ribbon deck and it just rocks into place. You can get a picture and instructions @ lexmark .com klick your way to publications. Be sure to advance the ribbon by hand a foot or so to be sure it isn't sticking to itself.

Put new ribbon cartridge in ibm wheelwriter 3 not printing now


If the ribbon is lifting up you probably have a cracked print solenoid plunger cap. They are available but a little tricky to install.

Wheelwriter 30 Series 2


First off make sure the ribbon turns freely.Take off the ribbon and turn the ribbon wheel in the direction of the arrow and see if it turns smoothly. If it turns smoothly the ribbon motor is not moving or the gear is not moving. take off the ribbon and type. See if the black ribbon drive gear on the ribbon deck moves as you type. If not the motor is N.G. or the ribbon gear clutch spring is not grabbing the gear to turn it. Lawrence

IBM Easystrike Cartridges


The ribbon cartridges can be pried apart they are pressed together, getting it apart is easier than putting back together.
Next time you have to install a ribbon advance it by hand for a foot or so as old ribbons tend to stick to themselves.

Hope this helps
