IBM/ by Lexmark Won't function

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.
Any Ideas?

Thank you

WHEN I TURN ON THE IBM LEXMARK ALL LIGHTS GO OUT AND KEYBOARD DOESNT WORK


Your probable problem is either the power supply or function board. The fact that the lights go out usually means it is not a keyboard problem. Does the machine beep and if so, how many times?

Wheelwriter 1000 tape does not lower


There should be a little gear beneath the carriage you can turn, which will lower it:

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.

How do I use the RePrint or Memory Function?


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)

IBM WheelWriter 10 Series II not functioning.


Could be many things. Take off the case and look for parer clips, staples or other debris on or under the PC board or in the power supply.

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.
