Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Model - IBM Wheelwriter Series II, Cartridge Printer II
One day I was typing just fine - then the ink stopped working. I thought that if I replaced the "Lift-Off Tape" (1337765) and the "Easystrike Superior Write Correctable Ribbon (1380999)", I would be able to type again. I still can not use my typewriter after replacing both parts - is there something else I should be doing?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! I love my typewriter, even though I use a desktop!
Hi Make sure the ribbon is moving while you type. Open the top cover and type. As you are typing feel the turn wheel on the ribbon to see if it is turning as you type. If it is moving and you see the impact solenoid pushing the hammer forward. The cap on the print solenoid needs replacement. If you want mail the t.w. to me and I will replace it for $50.00. If you never worked on this machine you need some one to replace it. iT IS NOT AN EASY JOB. LAWRENCE I have been fixing these for 30 years. Its my business.

It sounds like th4e plastic cap on the print solenoid plunger is broken. The part is avail. but a little tricky to replace.
