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
First be sure the lo battery is not on the display. On the L. side of the keyboard are 3 keys save, play and del, Hold down save while entering an address 01-99, release save key type info., press save again. Tto replay hold the play key and type address. To delete use the same process. If the batteries or the battery holder are bad all will be lost when the T/W is turned off.
On the L. side of the keyboard are 3 keys store play and delete. To store hold store while typing an address 01-99, rel. store, type info. press store again. To play press play and address and it will print info. Delete works the same way. (BE SURE YOUR BATTERIES ARE GOOD OR INFORMATION WILL CLEAR WHEN TURNED OFF)
The instructions to do this are located in your User Manual under "Create Text file" and "Print text file." It is too lengthy to write here. Check your manual, or if you don't have the manual, you can download one for $10.00 at www.typewritermall.com
