IBM Wheelwriter 6 Typewriter - while typing, characters just quit printing on paper. Checked ribbon, machine etc. Everything checked out?? What could be the problem.


It is probably the print solenoid that has a broken cap. I have seen a few advertisers that sell the repair kit with instructions. It is fairly simple to repair.

I installed a new cartridge ib my Brother GX 6750 and it is not printing..The keys are working fine however it is not hitting the tape to print.


Hi!
Neat little typewriter.

Think back, and reverse the steps.
Before you removed the finished ribbon, you had to pull on a little lever that is next to the printhead, right?

Now that you inserted the new ribbon, you must push that same lever towards the platen, away from you, in order to lock it back in the normal printing position.

Please feel free to contact me if you wish.

I have a wheelwriter 3 #674X. The print skipped somewhat and now is not printing at all-put in new ribbon and it seems the letters are not hitting the ribbon at all. What can I do to fix?


You probably have a broken print solenoid pad. We sell them for 20.00 includes shipping and handeling and instructions.

Type is faded and old looking even with new ribbon.


Put in a multi part form, if the carbons print well then try a fresh ribbon,. not one that has been sitting around for a long time. If it is bad check for debris around the print hammer, If its clean either the print solenoid is gummy or the solenoid cap is broken.

TYPEWRITER STOPPED PRINTING


If this a Wheelwriter the print solenoid pad is probably cracked. They are available but a little tricky to install.

Replacing typewriter ribbon


Linda, Depending on what make and model you have it could be several things. The newer TW's use a print wheel which has to home itself each time the power is turned on. This tells the print motor how far to turn for the correct letter. Make sure there is no debris and everything is seated properly... platen, print wheel, etc. Once again, this depends a lot on what kind of TW you have. MM85

Print head and ribbon do not in sync


sounds like the ribbon carriage is out of position, try holding the shift, and code keys, then power up, if thats no help the hold frame might have to be resitted.
