Delay print How do I get the delay print function to turn off? As it is, I type a line and it only types out after I hit return. I would like to be able to have the typewriter actually type as I type in the letter. Please help! Thanks.

I've hit a wrong key and now it won't print what I am typing it just moves along the line

Just hit the mode key until TYPE, on the display, is highlighted. There are 3 modes, TYPE (where the machine functions like a normal typewriter), L/L (Where what you are typing shows up in the display and then prints when you hit the "RETURN" button. You can make corrections, in this mode, before you print the line, which saves using your correction tape.) and STORE (which is used to store memory information, such as format and phrases.)

Why is my typewriter going backward

Not sure what you mean and what model it is, sometimes in the electronics if the CENTER function is activated by hitting a key the typewriter will type backwards, then when you hit the carriage return it will print and the line will be in the center of the margins, do not know if this helps but could be answer.

I have a a Lexmark Wheelwriter 3500 and it has the delayed printing function, well this does not seem to be working correctly it is typing before it should. what can i do to correct this problem?

If it types as you press the kets delay print is turned off, press the print mode key on the r
R. side until Dl prt is on the display. If it just starts typing at a the same position every time you probably have the R. margin set there and auto return on (CODE R).

When typing the letter don't appear

If they don't print until you hit the return key you are in the delay print mode, use the print mode key on the R. side to get out of it. If it isn't printing at all the plastic print solenoid cap is broken. We sell them with shipping and instructions for 20.00.

With a startype 3, do you have to use the delay function ( where you type then return to get type to print)?

The mastertype 3 is the same machine as the nakajima ae710. Go to NADIST.COM, click on current models you will find a manual there, it will tell you how to get out of the delay print mode.

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
