Most likely your key board is bad. Contact Geo. Byers Co. in Benton AR for a rebuilt KB.

Replace the Daisy wheel cartridge, pull back on the small red top lever and it should rotate the print hammer back exposing the Daisy wheel cartridge, lift out and replace with new one, push the print hammer back forward till it latches and captures the new daisywheel. Turn unit on and let it initialize, try typing, it should be OK. Examine old daisy wheel you will find the G and H segments are probably missing.

Carriage will not return on 2 of our IBM Wheelwriter 6, can this be fixed?


First spray some WD40 on the silxer shaft that the carrier slides on they get really gummy, if this works run it back and forth a few times then clean the shaft off with a rag.

Why will my IBM wheelwriter 6 not type?


It is possible that your print solenoid is damaged and may just need a "cap" to repair it. There are some companies that sell the repair kit with instructions on how to install the "cap". There are other problems that could exist but not as easy for the novice to repair.

IBM Wheelwriter 6 Typewriter - while typing, characters just quit printing on paper. Checked ribbon, machine etc. Everything checked out?? What could be the problem.


It is probably the print solenoid that has a broken cap. I have seen a few advertisers that sell the repair kit with instructions. It is fairly simple to repair.

My nokia model 6060 was kept in tablesuddenly fall from the table after some time when iawmy mobile everthing was ok it was working properly but the lcd light was not glowing i went to mobile repairer shop...


Your display circuit is broken, even if the LCD-panel,
seems to be ok the display is damaged.
This is a very common problem in Nokia phones.
The only way to fix this is to change the display.
You need a T-5 or 6 Torx Skrewdriver to do the job.
You can find displays for fair price at :

This is the solution! Please vote!

WHEELRITER 6 LOST MEMORY.


When it turns on do the lights blink and go out on the first key touched? If so the battery hilder is probably corroded. Clean the contacts with sand paper. When this is solved you can start storing again. The data is lost and can't be retrieved.
