Can you still buy a P/W sensor for IBM Wheelwriter 30 series ii

We've got two in our office that are throwing this 215 error. IF the sensor is bad can we still even buy a replacement?

215 indicates a printwheel error. Remove the printwheel, look for debris in the P/W cartridge and the area where it sits blow out the P/W area with air if the problem dosen't go away the sensor is probably bad.

On the l. side of the keyboard there are keys labeled store, play & delete. Press & hold store then type an address 01 thru 99 release store and type whatever you want. Upon completion press store again. To play it back press play and the address, to clear delete and address.

Three beeps and the space lights blinking means the batteries are bad replace them and be sure the holder is clean.

I believe a 215 code is a bad printwheel sensor. You need a tech.

IBM Wheelwriter 30 Series II is showing an error code of 215 with a box with a slash through it and am unable to type on it


215 is a Print Wheel error. Remove the print wheel, look for debris in the P/W area, if you have a compressed air source blow the P/W area out. If these don't work the P/W sensor is probably bad.

I have an IMB Wheelwriter 30 Series II. When I turned on the machine this morning it made a couple of ringing sounds and then on the display it reads a square with the number 215. Nothing else works on...


215 is a printwheel error. Remove the P/W, look for dirt or debris in that area, if you have a compressed air source blow out the P/W area. If these fail the P/W led sensor is probably bad.
and you most likely need a tech.

Error 215


215 is a printwheel error. Remove the wheel check fo debris in that area, if that dosen't help you probably have a bad led in the P/W sensor.

Check to be sure the printwheel to be sure it is properly installed, check for debris in the P/W area, If these are OK then the sensor is probably bad.

The book says turn the T/W off wait 30 seconds and restart, if condition returns call for service. However you might try removing the batteries and unplugging the machine waiting a few minutes and restarting. CAUTION ALL THE MEMORY WILL BE LOST!
