Many possibilities. Look on and under the PC board for debris especially metal, The next most likely is the keyboard.

I turn it on. Beeps 6 times. 2 lights flashing. how do I solve this problem?


Your problem might be a bad keyboard. The service manual says to check the ends of the cables that attach the keyboard to the system board. You may need a technician to swap a known good keyboard with yours and see if that is the problem. If it doesn't work then you will need a new system board.

We have a IBM Wheelwriter that was plugged in and powered on when we had a power outage. Now it only beeps the 6 times when turning it back on, no lights flash either, and it will not operate???


The keyboard is going bad. You can try my tip under WW1000 or have it rebuilt, contact Geo. Beters Co. @800-392-8085 for a rebuild, tell them O'Reilly sent you.

6 beeps linespace lights 1@2 flash


Hello, flashing 1 and 2 indicates that the machine has a keyboard problem. I have found that the keyboards are starting to fall apart due to the age factor and the only solution is to have the keyboard assembly replaced. EBM is where I usually get keyboards. good luck.

Usually means the keyboard is bad. Check the keyboard connecdtions. Sometimes a real pain to remove and reinsert them. What lights are blinking?
