    The only reason I am not rating the answer as a total "fix" is because I was hoping the solution was something to do with changing settings. In other words - a cost-free solution. Oh, well !

How do you change font size on IBM Wheelwriter 30, II?


The font size is changed by changing the printwheel. The pitch selection is automatically determined by the pitch on the printwheel. Here is a link to a viewable user's manual. www.lexmark.com/publications/pdfs/2007/typewriters/Wheelwriter-30.pdf

IBM Wheelwriter 6 Typewriter - while typing, characters just quit printing on paper. Checked ribbon, machine etc. Everything checked out?? What could be the problem.


It is probably the print solenoid that has a broken cap. I have seen a few advertisers that sell the repair kit with instructions. It is fairly simple to repair.

On a Wheelwriter 6, the ribbon does not advance after typing each character.


First thing try a fresh ribbon they get old and tend to stick to themselves. Don't try another ribbon from the same batch tou are using.

Typing characters that are not intended


Try these troubleshooting suggestions for your problem:

Wrong Characters Print or Characters Space Incorrectly:

1. Turn the typewriter off, wait 30 seconds, then turn the typewriter
on again and try typing again.
2. Make sure the LANG indicator is off.
3. Try a new printwheel.
4. Look for objects In the path of the carrier.
5. Make sure the printwheel is changed when there is a language
change.
6. If you are playing back, make sure you use the same pitch
printwheel you used when you typed the text.

Changing Font Size


To change the font size you need to install a different printwheel. There are places on the internet where you can order one along with an owners manual just do a search for the make and model.

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
