SOURCE: left platen latch is broken.

If it's pinned knock the pin out, if it's welded grind the welds off there not to deep. If the latcl is cracked but not broken off you can fold up some paper and wedge it into the latch. there is a replacement gear with a set screw for 15.00.

SOURCE: IBM Lexmark typewriter carriage return won't return to left position

Hi:

Open the top cover and locate the shiny rod that the carrier moves back and forth across. Use some WD-40 on a rag to clean it well the apply a light coating of it to the entire shaft.

Wheelwriter platen latch removal


Very vague question. the left side you have to drive the pin out.
right side just a clip.

If the platen wont stay down you can carefully wire it down so it doesnt interfere with the carrier is moved to the left.

Or buy a used platen.

Bottom half of letter not printing clearly


First try pressing down firmly on both ends of the platen (black roller) if it snaps into place you're fixed if it doesn't stay the black plastic latch is cracked you'll need a platen or just a larch if it is just the R, side.

The platen won't stay in place so only the top half of the characters are showing


If the right platen latch is broken it can easily be replaced to lock down the platen. If the left one is damaged then you have to replace the entire platen as that is much more difficult to repair.

Push down firmly on both ends of the platen it should snap into place. If the latch is broken the platen will need replaced.

I have an ibm personal wheelwriter. When typing on the right hand side of a page, the bottom part of the letter is not being typed. When typing on the left hand side, everything is OK.


The platen is not fully seated in the side frame. Press down firmly on the platen it should pop into place. Occasionally the black latches crack and the platen needs to be replaced.

ONLY TYPES TOP PART OF THE LETTER IBM WHEELWRITER 30 SERIES II


The most common problem is the platen (black roller) gets out of position. Be sure the black latches are aligned wuth the side frames then push down firmly on the ends of the platen it should snap into place.

IBM Wheelwriter 6 prints only top portion of characters


The platen is probably not all the way in. Be sure the black latches are lined up with the side frames and press firmly down on the platen.

hope this helps

I assume you had the platen out and now it is not seated all the way in. Be sure the black latches are aligned with the side frames then push the platen FIRMLY down.
