Question about Lexmark Wheelwriter 3 Typewriter

1 Answer

My ribbon broke, I don' t know how to fix it.

I just pulled my trusty IBM Wheelwriter 3 and typed a few solid lines of a poem. Then, out of nowhere, the ink strip breaks! I pulled out the IBM "Easystrike" High Yield Correctable Ribbon Cassette (1 299 845) and tried to fix things but am having trouble reloading the ribbon. Any suggestions?

The ribbon has 2 little (feet) on the rear of the cartridge they hook into the ribbon deck and it just rocks into place. You can get a picture and instructions @ lexmark .com klick your way to publications. Be sure to advance the ribbon by hand a foot or so to be sure it isn't sticking to itself.

Type on a two part form if the carbons are goog then you have a ribbon problem. Look at the ribbon. Do the letters overlap (ribbon feed) If they don't fall in a line near the center of the ribbon (ribbon lift) Check for folds in the ribbon.

Wheelwriter 3 printwheel


If you know where the print solenoid is try a few drops of oil on the front and rear of the plunger. If the pad needs replaced it can be done without removing the printer from the machine but it is tough. If you know how to remove the printer take it out, remove the printwheel, there are two screws that hold the solenoid once the dolenoid is out the installation is simple.

IBM Easystrike Cartridges


The ribbon cartridges can be pried apart they are pressed together, getting it apart is easier than putting back together.
Next time you have to install a ribbon advance it by hand for a foot or so as old ribbons tend to stick to themselves.

Hope this helps
