    Hi. There is no beeping. It is the lights on the right side of the keypad - the bold, shift lock etc. They will flash for 1/2 a second when you turn it on and then nothing. Not a sound. I think the poor thing finally died.

    Thanks. I'll take a peek in and see if I see anything.

    It worked! Cleaned off all the dirt and debris on the board. The old girl is working like a charm! Thanks so much!

  • nrachuba Nov 16, 2009

    I cleaned off the board. It it working again! Thanks!

Turn off the power. Check inside the machine for staples, paper clips etc. that could be shorting on electronics. Remove the printwheel and turn on the machine to see if the carrier will travel to the left side frame and then move to the left margin position. If not, turn off machine and move carrier manually to the middle of the machine and repeat the power on. If the carrier will move to the left side frame, then try cleaning and lubrication the carrier mainshaft ( by the rubber belt). If no carrier movement is present the machine will need extensive troubleshooting.

Not a good thing. Probably the power supply or function board.
If you are courageous open it up look for paper clips and staples on or aroud the board.

How do i use the memory function on my ibm wheelwriter 6?


Before we start turn it on after it completes is power on just the #1 light should be lit this says the batteries are OK. If they flash replace the batteries and clean the holder.
To store hold the store key while entering an address 1 - 99, type info then press store again.
To play press play with the address.
