Either the carriage home position sensor flag is broken or the daisy wheel can't find home. try removing daisy wheel and re-installit. turn unit on and see if daisy wheel spins if it does then the carriage home position sensor has a problem.

Have you checked the three batteries that are mounted in the right side carriage area? On mine, if the batteries are dead or missing it will do the beeps and lights.

I have an IBM Wheelwriter 10 Series ii typewriter that locks up with the 1, 1 1/2, 2 & 3 lights on the bottom right blinking. It will do nothing else.


If it types at first then locks up try a shot of WD40 on the silver shaft that the carrier slides on, if it still happens the carrier motor will need some to it is located under the case in the R. rear.

Carriage wont respond


Perhaps the L. Mar. is set there. Turn it on wait for the por sequence to complete, touch the mar rel key, back space to the far left, press L. mar key. If that dosen't do it tou must have some lights flashing and/or beeping, What lights and how many beeps?

Check in the area where the printwheel is installed for paper or other debris. If it does the same thing with the printwheel out then it is probably a printwheel sensor.

Could be many things. Take off the case and look for parer clips, staples or other debris on or under the PC board or in the power supply.
