Question about Lexmark Wheelwriter 15 Series II Typewriter
I have an IBM Wheelwriter 5 and the striker is not working. It was working until we changed out the ribbon cartridge. Any suggestions?
Is the hammer striking with no impression? (Try something with a carbon in it to see if it prints on the copy. If it does you have a ribbon problem. If the ribbon dosen't lift try wiggling the large black gear to see if it frees up. or your ribbon may be so old that it won't transfer the ink. If the hammer is not striking the plastic cap on the print soleniod is probably broken, they are available for 15.00 but are a little tricky to install.

Get a new laser printer, or even inkjet. They can be had for under a hundred bucks. It'll cost you that to get someone old enough to know what a wheelwriter is to come and look it...
