IBM Wheelwriter 10 Series II 6 Beeps 1,2,3 Blinking

IBM Wheelwriter 10 Series II 6783 Comes on with 6 Beeps and line spacing 1 2 and 3 blinking. I read the troubleshoot that says that it may be a printwheel issue but I replaced the printwheel and the issue persists, even after turning off for 30 seconds. Any other possible solutions before I have to send it out for service?

    It does do the same thing with the printwheel out, is there someway I can check the sensor. As far as debris this unit is spotless and dust free.

Check in the area where the printwheel is installed for paper or other debris. If it does the same thing with the printwheel out then it is probably a printwheel sensor.

    Usually the LED goes bad, If you know how to remove the case the LED is on the backside of the printer held on by one screw, remove it and shine a light into the hole, you will get a different error if that is the trouble.

This problem is commonly possible with a unit that the 2 AA batteries are (out). check for possible leak or corrosion and clean them up and install fresh AA batteries.

It always help to make sure that you remove the print ribbon, and pull back the hammer mechanism, and release the printwheel, and then reinstall all, by carefully line up the print wheel and put hammer back in place, then carefully install the ribbon and make sure it's also locked down with its latch properly, then when you turn on the unit, it should make only 1 beep and quickly get to ready position with one green light. Good luck there.

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.

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.

It sounds like the keyboard is bad. Check the two bflat connectors from the keyboard to the PC board, if they are connected ok a keyboard is in order.
