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.

How do I use the RePrint or Memory Function?

You didn't give the model of the WW, if it only has a reprint it is not suitable for this application as it will only retype what has just been typed. You will need a WW with a fully addressable memory (store, play and delete keys)

IBM Wheelwriter 1000 wont Return everytime

Probably no cracking required. Spray a little WD40 on the silver shaft that the carrier slides on, if that dosen't do it there is the carrier motor in the left rear that the bearings dry up in a little WD40 will work there as well.
