Question about Typewriters
Machine: IBM Wheelwriter 30 Series II
Hi, someone used our typewriter and hit a few keys and now the thing will not work properly. It appears to be stuck in KYBD 099 mode and anything we type comes up in musical notes.
More frustrated random keyboard bashing has yet to return the typewriter back to normal. I couldn't find any free manuals online and am not prepared to spend an extra $30 on a new manual.
Does anyone know where I could get a free manual or tell me how to revert it back to normal?
These guys are repairers so they may have extra copies.
IBM's Typewriter's site also has manual for sale for less than $20.
The typewriter seems to have a bad ribbon cartridge or a bad typing wheel. Take each one out and try to see if it will type normal. If one does, then you know to replace it.
