Tag on lid says IBM/ by Lexmark Wheelwriter;1000 This is not the newer 1000. Approx. 10 yrs old. When I turn on the power the carrage or nothing moves. 2 green lights flash next to line space key [ 1 & 2 ] and the machine beeps a cople of times. I took the case off and reset all the connectors on the board, motors, etc., but did not fix problem.

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.
You didn't give the model of the WW, if it only has a reprint it is not suitable for this application as it will only retype what has just been typed. You will need a WW with a fully addressable memory (store, play and delete keys)
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.
