Does it beep and type or just beep? If it types try holding code and pressing S. If you changed batteries with the machine off the memory is gone.

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

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

Machine beeps, no movement, monitor missing, tried turn on off.


Remove the batteries and unplug for 30 seconds plug in and test. Unpluging and removing the batteries causes it to reset to defalt settings.

Check the ywo keyboard connectors to be sure they are plugged in fully, if they are then press & hold the code key, press & rel the "L" key type 001 then release the code key.

This will put you into the english keyboard mode. To cure the problem you need a keyboard.

Beeping and keys don't work


When you power up what happens? What lights are lit, are thy flashing, are there beebs and how many? These are error codes and are important.

This is memory cleared. Change the batteries, be sure to clean the battery contacts especally if they were corroded.
