Question about Lexmark Wheelwriter 1000 Typewriter

1 Answer

Printing issues Suddenly, I can't get the period (.), coma (,), colon (:), or hyphen (-) to print. The semicolon (;) prints fine. All others are fine also. I've replaced the printwheel, put on a new ribbon, and replaced the correction tape. Could it be an impression problem? I don't have an operating manual and have no idea to correct. HELP! ~

    I have the same problem. The colon, comma, period, and hyphen will not type. The typewriter makes a different sound when I press these keys than when I press a key for a letter, number, or other symbol. It sounds like a lighter impression when I try to type the colon, comma, etc., than when I type a letter or number or other symbol.

There are a few things that can cause this. Try code Q if this helps you may have a gummy print soleniod, if it dosen't the cap on the solinoid plunger may be cracked or the platen might not be fully seated ib the frames.

Hope this is helpful

Why did my printing rate suddenly slow down to about 20 Why did my printing rate suddenly drop to about 20 % of normal


Check the print quality settings in the Printer Control Panel. If set to best and color it will slow printing considerably and use ink much quicker. Draft and B&W printing is usually fastest and sips ink compared to other modes.

Blocked print head nozzles
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent blocked print head nozzles. You may have blocked print head nozzles.
Try the printer maintenance to clear the printer nozzles.
After several deep cleaning attempts and there is no improvements in the print then a new print head is required. Also try - Removing the print head, run it under hot water for 2 mins, then let soak for 10 min. then used a can of compressed air to dry thoroughly. It may fix the blocked nozzles.
A new print head maybe expensive and it maybe more cost effective to purchase a new printer.
