Question about Lexmark Wheelwriter 1000 Typewriter

1 Answer

Erronous letters or numbers

As I am typing usually in the bold mode I type a capital H and a comma or
some other letter or number appears.

Also, if I let the typewriter sit idle for a moment and start typing again
I will get an erronous letter or number.

Could it be a bad print wheel?

It is typing 3 times for each letter.


You are probably in the bold mode. There is either a key marked BOLD or one with bold in small letters that you must use the code key with.

How do i get bold letters on my computer,i do not want to purchase program


Without having the operator manual what I recall on these types of type writers, they have a key next to the space bar called "Features Key."
Most keys are color labeled.
Select the bold feature, it's color origin,
1. Press and hold that features key
2. Touch the bold key, now you are in bold typing mode.
3. When you finish bold typing, press the features key and hold, then touch the bold to turn it off.

How to type in capital letters on facit typewriter?


You did not specify if it was a manual or electric or the model, so assuming it is a standard manual or electric machine, push down on the shift key and hold it, then type your letter or letters. If you are typing everything in caps, press the shift lock key.
