Lexmark Wheelwriter 2500

The ribbon is not moving and therefore every strike hits in the same place...pretty much makes typing impossible. I have taken the ribbon off and tried to figure out why it is not moving but with no luck. Any suggestions?

If th ribbon is lifting but not feeding you probably need a new ribbon.

Ribbon sits higher than striking mechanism. Machine is not rotating it down into normal operating position. Any solution?? Tks


Take the ribbon off, watch the ribbon deck while typing and correcting. Is it making the proper movements, lower for print, higher for correction, is the ribbon motor just under the R. side or the deck moving? If the ribbon motor isn't moving check to see if its cable is connected and Put som WD40 on the upper and lower bearings.

IBM Wheelwriter 6-Letters striking paper above


Put in a multi part form and type if the carbons come out OK the the ribbon isn't lifting, Wiggle the big black gear on the R. side of the carrier back and forth. They do get tooth for tooth when they get old. If the print on the copies id bad or not there you need a print solenoid cap. We sell them for 20,00 including instructiond and shipping.

Ribbon will not move when typing


If this is a wheelwriter remove the ribbon, mark the driver on the ribbon deck with some white out, type and see if it moves.
If it moves try a new ribbon, if it dosen't move put some WD40 on the upper and lower motor bearings if that dosen't help you probably need a motor or a board.

the wheelwriter 2500 typewriter will only print the color the ribbon is, which normally is black.  you may be able to find a colored ribbon for your machine.  try googling it.  good luck with that.

There is a plastic cap on the print solenoid plunger that is probably broken, they are available but a little tricky to install.

First off make sure the ribbon turns freely.Take off the ribbon and turn the ribbon wheel in the direction of the arrow and see if it turns smoothly. If it turns smoothly the ribbon motor is not moving or the gear is not moving. take off the ribbon and type. See if the black ribbon drive gear on the ribbon deck moves as you type. If not the motor is N.G. or the ribbon gear clutch spring is not grabbing the gear to turn it. Lawrence

You may need a ribbon motor or motor board, however on the older wheelwriters sometimes the gear mesh gets sloppy and gears jam tooth for tooth. Try moving the ribbon lift gear/cam on rt. side of the carrier by hand with the machine off if it won't move that's the trouble. Wiggle it back and forth and it may free up.
