You can hook up a standard computer monitor to the typewriter, but it won't recognize color, and sometimes on eBay you can find IBM POS (point of sale) monitors that will work on the typewriter. Do you still have the typewriter?

For machines that beep several times when turning on, believe it to be a sign of failing battery.
don't unplug when replacing battery or you will lose everything. Believe you might have to have machine turned on also, not sure on this point.

Anyone know how to backup memory on a Wheelwiter 70?
I use a PC monitor with it, but the disc drive failed. Costs are $300. for new disc drive , and not sure that would fix the problem though.

How do I use the RePrint or Memory Function?


You didn't give the model of the WW, if it only has a reprint it is not suitable for this application as it will only retype what has just been typed. You will need a WW with a fully addressable memory (store, play and delete keys)
