IBM Wheelwriter 6 powers up, then beeps. No lights, changed batteries. What is problem?

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

Ribbon will work in one Wheelwriter 6, no print output in another one

Your print solenoid probably has a broken cap. There are some companies that sell the "kit" with instructions on how to replace the cap.

I have a wheelwriter 6 type 674X IBM typewriter. I do not have a manual, and it seems like it has started striking softer and not making a very legible letter. How can I change the setting to make it...

First try a little WD40 on the print solenoid plunger, If that dosen't help you probably have a broken plastic print solenoid cap. We vsell replacements for 20.00 including instructions and shipping.

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.

How do I make key srrike harder on an IBM Wheelwriter 6? The print is to light on carboned forms.

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.

No user manual for my IBM Wheelwriter 6

You can download the IBM Wheelwriter 6 series II 6784 Operator 's Guide from Lexmark site (look for "IBM Typewriters" in the bottom of the page):

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.
