The most common problem for this is the hammer solenoid pad has deteriated and it does strike the printwheel with enough force to hit the paper. You can look down on the left side of the printwheel and see the little white or opaque colored round pad, it is probably cracked and falling apart. Easy part to order and tricky to install. You will need a set of tweezers and small bladed screw driver to try and get it in place. I suggest that you take it to a shop. We charge $40.00 dollars plus $ 10.00 for the pad.

First and foremost when you switch it on does it initializes (printer wheel spinning and carriage move?) If that happens the the problem is with your key.It could one key is constantly pressed. So ensure that all key are free.
Hope this helps you.

I do not have a manual for the IBM wheelwriter 3, but I need to know how to set margins for this typewriter. Each time I press return the left margin changes moves to the right. If I shut it off the margin...


The WW3 resets margins and tabs to default on every power up. If the margins change while you are typing then the silver shaft that nthe carrier slides on is probably gummy. A shot of WD40 on both sies of the shaft shouls free it up.
Go to lexmark.com, click on support you will find a downloadable manual there.

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.

Correction is pretty simple type a letter, press the correction key and it should lift the wrong letter off.

My IBM Selectric II types the wrong letters. No matter which key I press a different letter will be typed. But there is consistency in that the wrong letter will repeat over and over again so its not...


Sounds like the cable might have slipped off the pulley, with the cover off, check all cables to the carriage assy. You need a tool like a spring hook to gently slide the cable back on to the pulley.

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 30 series II - prints only half a letter


If it types only the top half yhe platen is probably not all the way in. Make sure the 2 black latches are lined up with the side frames then press down firmly on both sides of the platen.
