I have an instruction manual for IBM Wheelwriter 1000. The troubleshooting page in my manual for the machine coming on and having no lights is to make sure the cord is securely plugged into the typewriter and the wall or power strip and to switch the machine off and back on. Mine has a power saving mode where the lights go off after a while to enter power saving mode. I only need to touch a key to turn it back on.
Hope this helps - Cindy
The print solenoid cap is probably cracked or the solenoid is gummed up or there is som debris in the print area. Look for debris, Give the back side of the solenoid located just inside the L. printer side frame under the ribbon. If these don't help we sell the cap with instructions and shipping fot 20.00.
If it prints well on 20# bond and the carbons the problem may well be the paper the forms is printed on. Otherwise the print solenoid cap may be cracked. You can try a Lexmark Brand #1380999 for hard to image paper. There are some circular plastic shims on the front side of the solenoid, remove one and it will print darker. If you need the solenoid cap we bsell them with instructions and shipping for 20.00.
If all you remember is the # 80, maybe what you have to do is insert the the paper in the machine and then press [PLAY] + the number 80 and, then, each time the playback stops at a stop point, type the variable text to be inserted (check the " Playing back a repetitive letter" section of the manual).
You can also get a print "directory" of all text stored (check the "Advanced Storage" chapter).
Hope this helps.
If this ia a wheelwriter 6 on the l. side of the keyboard are 3 keys store, play & delete. To store hold store and press an address 01-99, rel the store key, type info., then press store again. To print hold play and type address 01-99 info. will print.
The WW15 does not have a recallable memory, it has a reprint memory that will repeat what you have JUST typed, code reprt top left kry on the keyboard will activate if you want a full memory get a WW5 or 6.
