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

Lexmark Wheelwriter 1000 -Problem with wheel?


A few possibilities: The LED or sensor that looks at the primtwheel is getting weak, There may be debris on or under the PC board, the power supply is weak or rarely the flat white cable to the carrier is bad.
None of these are easy repairs, I'm sure we can repair it if you get it to us.

Cant lift scanner unit to replace cartridge (stuck/jammed)


Try unplugging the unit from the wall and leaving unplugged for at least 40 seconds. Then plug it in, wait a few seconds and then turn on the power. Wait until the light on the front of the unit is steady green and try opening the unit. I hope this helps. Good luck. :-)

Wheelwriter 6 Typewriter won't come on.


When the switch is turned on, the machine sholuld cycle all the motors and home the carrier to the left margin position and one of the linespace lights whould be on. If the machine does not cycle at all:
  • Make certain that there is power to the outlet (try a known working appliance or light into that outlet)
  • Ched that the line cord is securely plugged into the wall outlet
  • Check that the line cord is securely pluggted intor the back of the typewrtier (you can wiggle it while the power switch is on and see if the machine reacts)
  • Flip the switch on and off several times, including a flicking motion

Wheelwriter 1000 beeps when I try to type!


Could be a few things, board, power supply, keyboard or printer.
But there are some things you can check, remove the printwheel and look for debris in that area, unplug and replug the keyboard, if you are really adventurious remove the cover and keyboard and look for paper clips or staples on or under the pc board.

Storing information on the lexmark 1000 typewriter


For the LexMark Wheelwriter 1000 you can only "Reprint" the information you have typed. Once you turn off the machine the "reprint" mode will not longer retain information.
