Question about Lexmark Wheelwriter 10 Series II Typewriter
We just pulled this typewriter out of the box and when you type, all the lights on the right side turn on and it beeps at you 3 times, the device returns to the beginning of the line and the printwheel spins and freaks out. Is there a solution to this problem? Thank you!

All of the lights need to be flashing if the batteries are dead. Any other combination means either the keyboard , power supply or main logic board is bad.

The prinwheel sensor is likely the issue. Move the carrier to the right, on the left side of th carrier toward the rear of the machine there should be a small black "flag" sticking out of the carrier. this should move freely in and out if it is not there or does not move the machine cannot detect the printwheel the sensor will need to be replaced.
You ca also check for debri down in the area where the printwheel sits.

try turning the machine off put a SMALL amount of oil on the large round rod running across the typewriter manually push the print head left and right a few times to see if it will loosen up. The problem is usually caused be drying oil you may consider having it serviced by a pro.

You have a keyboard problem. The rt. connector has 7 contacts bussed together, wrap a piece of foil over that portion of the connector and plug it back in. BE SURE TO COVER ONLY THE 7 BUSSED CONNECTORS!

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.
