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

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.

Hi, I'm trying to find a replacement ball element for an IBM wheel writer 1000. Can you help?


The wheelwriters do not use a "ball element". They use a printwheel. You can find many different typestyles on ebay or amazon.

Striker hits the ribbon but it will not print. Replaced the ribbon but it did not help.


If you are sure the hammer is hitting the printwheel and platen (try printing on a multi part form if the carbons print the ribbon is probably not lifting, wiggle the big black gear on the right side of the printer. If it doden't print the print solenoid cap is probably broken.

We sell the cap with instructions and shipping for 20.00.
