This type of problem needs the IBM Service Manuals. This is a self-diagnostic symptom indicator on IBM Wheelwriters. I do not have access to the manuals anymore so I can not tell you what are the likely problems, but I can tell you that you will probably have to see a service tech who has access to the manuals. The manuals step you through a step-by-step process for locating the problem and resolving it. Sorry for the bad news.

I have an IBM Wheelwriter 10 Series ii typewriter that locks up with the 1, 1 1/2, 2 & 3 lights on the bottom right blinking. It will do nothing else.


If it types at first then locks up try a shot of WD40 on the silver shaft that the carrier slides on, if it still happens the carrier motor will need some to it is located under the case in the R. rear.

Be sure the printwheel id properly installed, remove P/W & check for dirt and debris in that area. If you have air in a can try blowin out that area.

Wheelwriter 1000 beeps when I try to type!


Could be a few things, board, power supply, keyboard or printer.
But there are some things you can check, remove the printwheel and look for debris in that area, unplug and replug the keyboard, if you are really adventurious remove the cover and keyboard and look for paper clips or staples on or under the pc board.

Typewriter only beeps and lights blink. Nothing else.


the beeping and the lights are error codes, meaning the machine will need repair

IBM Wheelwriter 6 Problem


The lights blinking indicates an error code, that mean a keyboard error or posibly a problem in the start up procedure. This is a problem that would have to be solved in a repair shop.

No start up


If your WW3 has batteries it must have spell check or printer options there is a small door on the top right of the machine.

open the door and unplug the plug you find there and try it.
