Wheelwriter 6, flashing #3 beeps 3 times. press any keys twice and it will type.


You batteries need to be replaced, and or the battery holder is
corroded. Should be removed and cleaned so acid does not leak inside the machine.

Batteries hold the margins and tabs when turned off, not real necessarry.

How can I set a right hand tab


I assume you are talking about Flush Right Tabulation.

To set a flush right tab:
(1) Position the carrier (or cursor) at the point where you want a flush right tab to be set.
(2) Hold down the Tab set/clear key and press the 2 key.

To clear a flush right tab:
(1) Press the Tab/back tab key to move the carrier (or cursor) to the flush right tab position.
(2) Hold down the Code key and press the Tab set/clear key.

To use a flush right tab:
(1) Press the Tab/back tab key to move the carrier (or cursor) to the flush right tab position.
(2) Type the text. Characters will appear on the display as they are typed. Corrections can be made on the display before the text is printed.
(3) Press the Print key. The text is printed aligned with the flush right tab position.

How do i release the tab position?


At each tab stop, press the "tab release" button. Then tab to the next tab position and do the same. OR

You can put the machine in "service mode" which will erase all tab stops and reset your margins to their default positions. Easily done by turning the typewriter OFF. Then while off, press and hold "mar rel" (margin release) key on upper left side of keyboard. While holding it down and keeping it down, turn the typewriter ON. Then take your finger off the Margin Release key. The typewriter will start typing all by itself. Turn the typewriter off, then on. That will reset everything. All tab stops will be erased and margins reset to their defaults.
