When you make an error simply press the correction key it should lift off, if itv dosen't either the ribbon or L/O tape may be old or both of them.

The correction tape is not working properly. Wheelwriter 1000


If everything was working befor the ribbon & L/O change Either the L/o is not properly attached to the ribbon or the ribbon and or L/O are old. Make some corrections then remove and look at the L/o, if the letters are near the center of the L/O the problem is the ribbon or L/o is old, if the print is on the top of the tape it is not properly attached to the ribbon or not coming out or the cassette properly.
If you have a fresh set or another T/W that works swap the ribbons and look at how they are attached.

For a picture ngo to lexmark.com and click your way to publications you will find a downloadable manual there.

I just bought refurb wheelwriter 3, but the correction doesnt wk


Does it do the things to correct? (Backspace, correction lift up, hammer make the printing sound) Also check the ribbon, the knob should be yellow, orange or purple, if it is red or blue it is a non correctable ribbon.

How do i turn off the delayed type on a ibm wheelwriter6


at the very top right of your keyboard there is a "print mode" key
press this key until the note in the left lower coner of the display says "char print"
however in delay print you can correct mistakes before you print - saves on correction tape

If the T/W is making all the moves & sounds of correction you probably have a very old correction tape. Try moving it forward a few inches & see if that helps also the ribbons get old and become non-correctable.

Correction tape on wheelwriter 3


The correction cassette snaps on the bottom of the ribbon. The two little "feet" on the cassette slide over the small tabs on the ribbon and the ribbon clips on.

Hope this helps
