The power comes on. There's a humming noise but nothing works. The display is interuppted dark lines. It quit mid typing. What's wrong?


Need to get more information. Turn off the machine and wait 5 seconds and then turn it back on. Do any of the lights on the right side of the keyboard come on and or blink? Does the carriage move at all or does the display have anything showing or are there just dark lines? Does the machine beep and if so, how many times? The answers to these questions will help diagnose the problem(s).

The bottom half of the letters typed dont show up


Press down firmly on both ends of the platen (black rubber roll) it should snap into place, if it comes back out one of the latches is broken and will need replaced.

PROBLEM WITH MY IBM TYPWRITTER MODEL 6787.BEEPS


This code does not appear in the users guide. You might try removing the batteries turn off for 30 sec. and restart. This will reset everything to factory defaults.

THIS WILL CLEAR THE MEMORY!!!

MY IBM SELECTRIC II TYPES THE WRONG LETTERS. I CHANGED THE RIBBON, AND THE CORRECT TYPE. WHEN I PUT THE ELEMENT ON, IT STARTING TYPING THE WRONG LETTERS.


Not good. You probably turned the element while removing it and if you are lucky had it come off one of the pulleys, but more likely it came off the wheel under the element. Then you will need a tech.

IBM wheelwriter types wrong letters


Try holding the code key and pressing the "L". If that dosen't do it remove the batteries turn it off wait a minite and restart this will put everything at default setting and clear the memory. If you still have the problem Press code "L" hold down the "L" type 001 to set the keyboard to U.S. If this works you need a keyboard for a permanent repair. For a keyboard contact Geo. Beyers Co.

Typing characters that are not intended


Try these troubleshooting suggestions for your problem:

Wrong Characters Print or Characters Space Incorrectly:

1. Turn the typewriter off, wait 30 seconds, then turn the typewriter
on again and try typing again.
2. Make sure the LANG indicator is off.
3. Try a new printwheel.
4. Look for objects In the path of the carrier.
5. Make sure the printwheel is changed when there is a language
change.
6. If you are playing back, make sure you use the same pitch
printwheel you used when you typed the text.
