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.

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
