Question about IBM Wheelwriter 30 Typewriter

1 Answer

IBM Wheelwriter 5. Beeps once when turned on, then 3 line space lights (1, 1.5, and 2) flash continuously. I can move the carriage manually and when the typewriter is turned off and back on, the carriage will move itself back to the starting position. I have checked for debris around the carriage and the printwheel and replaced the batteries. Any ideas?

I have an IBm Wheelwriter 5 typrwriter. When I turn it on the line space lights blink and I cannot type or get the casette to move at all.


How many beeps? Which Lights? Blinking together or sequentially? These will help to determine the problem.

When i turn my ibm on, the line space lights stay lit, the carriage won't move, except manually and it beeps 3 times over & over


Not a good thing. Check for paper clips, staples and other debris on, under or oround the PC board and power supply.

IBM Wheelwriter #5 - The line space keys are flashing and the typewriter will not work. I unplugged it and replaced the batteries.


There are a lot of possibilities. Which lights are flashing? In sequence? Beeps? How many?

These all are codes to the problem.

IBM Wheelwriter 5 nonresponsive, line spacing lights flashing


A lot of possibilities Which lights, beeps, how many? Check for debris in and around the printwheel, look for any obstructions under the carrier, put a few drops of oil on the silver shaft the carrier ride on.

Good Luck

Will the carrier move yo the rt. with power off ? Try a little WD40 on the silver shaft that runs thru the carrier. Look for foreign objects and debris inside the t/w.
