Hi we have an old ibm typewriter. I changed the ribbon and the wheel. I cleaned everything but still prints half of the letters. The top part to be exact.


There should be an adjustment on the head that sets the angle of the strike for the wheel. Unfortunatley there are no diagrams available for this technology

there is a solenoid that fires the hammer to strike ribbon and that most likely is the culprit. sometimes, you can clean solenoid and replace the little plunger to take care of the problem. however, it takes a tech or at least someone with very good mechanical skills to get to it.

good luck,

Wheelwriter 30 series 2.


Put in a multi part form and type if the print is good on the carbons the problem is ribbon or ribbon lifting, if the print is poor the print solenoid cap is probably cracked. We sell the cap with instructions and shipping for 20.00.

I need a manual for IBM wheelwriter. Is there one


Go to LEXMARK.COM and click your way to publications you will find a downloadable manual there.

If the hammer isn't striking the paper the print solenoid cap is probably broken. We sell them for 20.00 includes shipping and instructions.

There is a plastic cap on the print solenoid plunger that is probably broken, they are available but a little tricky to install.

Is the hammer moving at all? There is a rubber part on the I think left side of the ribbon hammer, down on the side of the printer. This will adjust the amount of impact. I really doubt if
this is the problem, but worth a try to look at. This part and I think it is a blue slide will move up and down to adjust the impact. Possible lubrication and there is a large spring that actually pulls that hammer forward, check to see if this spring is OK. Other than that electronic problems such as main board, printer motors, etc. Does hammer move freely by hand? Also mechanical binding in the printer... GOOD LUCK.

First off make sure the ribbon turns freely.Take off the ribbon and turn the ribbon wheel in the direction of the arrow and see if it turns smoothly. If it turns smoothly the ribbon motor is not moving or the gear is not moving. take off the ribbon and type. See if the black ribbon drive gear on the ribbon deck moves as you type. If not the motor is N.G. or the ribbon gear clutch spring is not grabbing the gear to turn it. Lawrence
