The correction cassette snaps on the bottom of the ribbon. The two little "feet" on the cassette slide over the small tabs on the ribbon and the ribbon clips on.

Hope this helps

You may have a very old correction tape or ribbon, a non correctable ribbon or it isn't properly installed

IBM Wheelwriter correction tape will not lift off print. New correction tape installed.


You may have a very old L/O or ribbon. The ribbon may be a non correctable the knob must be orange, yellow or violet. Not blue or red.

The correction tape is not working properly. Wheelwriter 1000


If everything was working befor the ribbon & L/O change Either the L/o is not properly attached to the ribbon or the ribbon and or L/O are old. Make some corrections then remove and look at the L/o, if the letters are near the center of the L/O the problem is the ribbon or L/o is old, if the print is on the top of the tape it is not properly attached to the ribbon or not coming out or the cassette properly.
If you have a fresh set or another T/W that works swap the ribbons and look at how they are attached.

For a picture ngo to lexmark.com and click your way to publications you will find a downloadable manual there.

I just bought refurb wheelwriter 3, but the correction doesnt wk


Does it do the things to correct? (Backspace, correction lift up, hammer make the printing sound) Also check the ribbon, the knob should be yellow, orange or purple, if it is red or blue it is a non correctable ribbon.

If the T/W is making all the moves & sounds of correction you probably have a very old correction tape. Try moving it forward a few inches & see if that helps also the ribbons get old and become non-correctable.

The ribbon drive motor might be n/g. I think 6 beeps is the ribbon motor located under the gear on the ribbon cartridge.

Wheelwriter 10 Series II doesn't work


My repair book shows:
1 Make sure the printwheel in installed correctly. 2. make sure the ribbon and correction tape are installed correctly 3. turn the typewriter off wait 30 seconds then turn back on if the same thing happens install another printwheel. 4 turn the typewriter off wait 30 seconds then turn it back on if the same thing happens call for service.
