How to change font from 12 to 10


IBM Wheelwriters automatically know the pitch by the printwheel that is inserted. If you want 12 pitch, you have to insert a 12 pitch printwheel, same for 10, 15, and PS.

How do you change font size on IBM Wheelwriter 30, II?


The font size is changed by changing the printwheel. The pitch selection is automatically determined by the pitch on the printwheel. Here is a link to a viewable user's manual. www.lexmark.com/publications/pdfs/2007/typewriters/Wheelwriter-30.pdf

Try cleaning the sensor that lays behind the printwheel that tells the machine the wheel is in the home position, the sensor is in the print carrier. take wheel out and look down and you will see the sensor, clean it off with clean cloth. also put some white out on the top of the printwheel and see if it stops at the same place every time when you turn on and off.

IBM Wheelwriter 1000 Lexmark - Machine beeps and Lights 1,2 & 3 blink. Replaced batteries and still doesn't work.


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.

Joany, look for a function,usually on the left side of the keyboard on the IBM,that has the markings 10,12 and 15. And if my memory is correct,there will be a series of lamps which light up at the selected pitch. I would look for a key marked "pitch" and press that. Good luck.
