The switch can be replaced but there are a few different styles as with the entire power supply. If you can get the power supply to us we can do it for under 60.00. nYou can shut it off by unplugging it at the rear of the T/W.

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

Your print solenoid probably has a broken cap. There are some companies that sell the "kit" with instructions on how to replace the cap.

IBM Wheelwriter 6 key stricker is not moving, the print wheel turns but nothing prints.


Remove the P/W look for broken or bent spokes. If the cent sign will print you need a printwheel.

I have a IBM Personal Wheelwriter 2 that when shut off, it lights up, but then shuts off. Sometimes it stays lit up, so we try not shutting off, but it's a problem.


I have never replaced an off on switch on a personal WW but it sure sounds like it is bad. You can buy one for 15.00 from us.

IBM Wheelwriter 6 memory loss


If you have changed the batteries the battery holder is probably corroded, take a piece of fune sand paper and clean the contacts, put the batteries in and spin them around to help them seat.
