IBM Wheelwriter 6 series Everything has been working fine. Now it's imposible to play back a job. Still can store new jobs, but can't play them back?

If you can play them back before you shut it off then the batteries are bad, If so be sure to clean the contacts in the holder. If you can't play anything ever then you must have a bad keyboard or memory.

How can I edit an address I already have stored in my IBM Wheewriter 6 without deleting it entirely and retype it in and storing it again?

You do not have to purchase a manual for this one job. There is a free copy at
Just go to the bottom of the page for "Typewriters" and choose your model. I believe the answer you are looking for is on page 3-25. I have looked at it myself. Here are the steps.

Always open the storage before making a revision.
- The store light must be on.
Pressing Store + the number (1 to 99) always opens storage at the beginning of a job.
If you play back too far or want to start over:
1. Press Play to stop playback
2. Press Store + the number (1 through 99)
3. Press Play. (Playback starts again at the beginning of the job.)

Use the Correction key to erase unwanted carrier returns from Stored job:
1. Press Play or Play+Spacebar until the carrier return playb
2. Press the correction key.

After making a revision hold down Play while you press and release the Spacebar several times to make sure the next few characters play back correctly.

When revising indented jobs, be sure to stop playback at the word or character you want to revise. Remember, you cannot use the Correction key to erase characters typed before you press Code+Tab or Code+Crtn. Therefore, if you play back too far, you may need to start playing back again from the beginning of the job.

Let me know if there is anything else needed.

How do i restore original settings on the ibm wheelwriter 3500 type writer. It doesnt print text until entire words are input on the lcd

Here is a simple way to record. You have 99 memory slots. Hold the store and press "1" type what you want in memory. Press "store" to close the storage area. When you want to play what you stored, press and hold play and tap "1" it will play just what you stored. You can repeat this 1 through 99 until the memory is full.

Data will not stay stored

I assume that the data clears when you turn off the T/W, if so the batteries need changed. Depending on the age of the machine they are either on the R. or L. on the base just beyond the keyboard, they will probably be corroded so be sure to clean the holder contacts.
