DickyO - I see this "solution" posted numerous times. I search for your "tip under WW1000" and find nothing. This seems to be more a spammer selling his repair service.

The keyboard is probably going bad. You can try my tip under WW1000 or contact Geo. Beyers Co. @ 1800-392-8085 for a keyboard rebuild. Tell them O'Reilly sent you.

How many beeps? Which Lights? Blinking together or sequentially? These will help to determine the problem.

First be sure the printwheel is installed properly, and look for debris in that area. Put some light oil on the silver shaft that the carrier slides on (WD40 is good).

Character spacing


Joany, look for a function,usually on the left side of the keyboard on the IBM,that has the markings 10,12 and 15. And if my memory is correct,there will be a series of lamps which light up at the selected pitch. I would look for a key marked "pitch" and press that. Good luck.
