    The code says 121, I unpluged it, turned it off, put new batteries in it, sprayed the debris and tried the code, L, 001. Does not work for me. Any other suggestions?

If none of those things helped you need a printwheel sensor call a tech.

Tou can try pressing and holding the code key, press and hold the "L" key, release code type 001, release "L" key. Your keyboard may be bad this will select USA keyboard.

Good luck

Lexmark wheelwriter 3500 indicates code 215.

215 is print wheel error. Remove the printwheel look for dirt and debris in that area, if you have a compressed air source blow thw P/W area out. If these don't work the printwheel sensor is likely bad.

In my tipewriter appears a square with a diagonal inside and the number 121 and it doesn´t works. What can I do?

You need a keyboard. I'll exchange it with a rebuilt one for 75.00 including shipping.

Will not advance or return to left margin.

215 is a pwintwheel not being detected. Try re installing the P/W look for debris in that area, if you have a compressed air source blow out that area. If these fail tou will need a P/W sensor, LED or both.

I believe a 215 code is a bad printwheel sensor. You need a tech.

The 121 indicates a keyboard problem, See my tip under ww1000 also check the two flat connectors from the KB to the PC mboard.

The book says turn the T/W off wait 30 seconds and restart, if condition returns call for service. However you might try removing the batteries and unplugging the machine waiting a few minutes and restarting. CAUTION ALL THE MEMORY WILL BE LOST!

Try pressing and holding code key while pressing "L" release "L"
and type 001 release the code key. If this solves the trouble but it comes back on the next power up the keyboard is bad.

You may have the wrong keyboard selected. Try holding down the code key while pressing the L(lang) key.Release the L key and continue holding down the code key while you type the keyboard code number. USA keyboard is 001.
