Cant typer further than 10 characters

Good Afternoon,
We have owned our current IBM Wheelwriter 6 since 1987 and we have had no problems with it until yesterday. For some reason, we ar able to type on the right hand side of the piece of paper but as soon as we get to a certain point we are not able to type anymore. I can type about 10 characters and then every key I hit after that beeps at us. I am able to continue typing only if I hit enter and continue typing on the line below.

Can't quite interpret whether your right or left margin is locked up, but it is one of them. Hit the Margin Release key and backspace to where you want the left margin to be, then hit LMar. Now space (hold down) until it locks up and then continue to space until you get to where you want the right margin to be located. Hit RMar. You should now be all set to type.

The trouble is probably the silver shaft that the carrier slides on is gummed up. Try a little WD40 on the shaft, if that dosen't work the carrier motor in the L. rear corner may need lubricated, WD40 will do that too.

Bottom part of lower case letter not printing


If the problem is just one character that is not printing the bottom then the printwheel is damaged and will need to be replaced. If it is all of the characters then the platen (roller) may not be snapped down on either side.

IBM Wheelwriter 3500.


Does the display show aP/W nomber other than 001?
If it does hold the code key,press and release the "L" key type 001 release the "L" key this sets the keyboard to U.S., if this works the cure is to replace the keyboard.

You can get the cap from us, however try getting some lube on the front or the solenoil plunger they do gum up.

Try a little light oil on the printer shaft. WD40 works well.

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

Character spacing


Joany, look for a function,usually on the left side of the keyboard on the IBM,that has the markings 10,12 and 15. And if my memory is correct,there will be a series of lamps which light up at the selected pitch. I would look for a key marked "pitch" and press that. Good luck.
