When it turns on do the lights blink and go out on the first key touched? If so the battery hilder is probably corroded. Clean the contacts with sand paper. When this is solved you can start storing again. The data is lost and can't be retrieved.

Can a IBM wheelriter 6 repair when the G andH will not work


Replace the Daisy wheel cartridge, pull back on the small red top lever and it should rotate the print hammer back exposing the Daisy wheel cartridge, lift out and replace with new one, push the print hammer back forward till it latches and captures the new daisywheel. Turn unit on and let it initialize, try typing, it should be OK. Examine old daisy wheel you will find the G and H segments are probably missing.

Looking for 64 memory chip fir 2416 typewriter


ebay has a "save this search" feature - you can key in a part number, or a combo of words like "2416" and "memory chip" and it will search its listings daily for those combos, you could use several searches if desired. I found a radio my brother lost in a fire years ago, made under the RCA and GE labels, by entering in the model #, and RCA, then GE, and saving those searches. After a couple of months, it came up with a "hit" and I was able to buy that radio - made 25 years ago or so -

Memory erases when turned off


There are AA batteries in the machine and it takes either 2 or 3. You can replace them when the machine is on as that will not harm the machine or you. The batteries should be replaced every one - two years. Replacing them when the machine is turned on will allow the current memory to remain intact.

Hi. I lost all addresses in my IBM Selectric 6787. IS there a way to get them back?


Once you lose the memory it's gone. Sorry but be sure to replace the batteries and clean the contacts in the holder. When you next change the batteries be sure the T/W is on or you will lose it again.

IBM Wheelwriter 6 memory loss


If you have changed the batteries the battery holder is probably corroded, take a piece of fune sand paper and clean the contacts, put the batteries in and spin them around to help them seat.

Programming wheelwriter 6


The WW series uses a battery pack with 3 AA batteries, located right under the top cover. If you have never replaced these the pack is probably corroded and be cleaned with a nail file.... or even Coke if you want to remove it.

When things are clean and dry replace the cells with new ones and plug the pack back in.

Sorry to tell you but the memory is gone forever. In the future, replace the batteries when the power to the TW is ON, only was IBM lets you do that.
