The platen is not fully seated in the side frame. Press down firmly on the platen it should pop into place. Occasionally the black latches crack and the platen needs to be replaced.

IBM Wheelwriter 2, the bottom half of the letters are not printing. It is not the ribbon because I have changed it out.


Two things come to mind for this problem. First try pushing down firmly on both ends of the black rubber platen roller. Sometimes the black plastic latch on either side may break causing one side of the roller to lift up causing partial print. The other possibility is the ribbon is not lifting correctly. A technician can adjust the ribbon lift. After typing a few letters, take the ribbon out and look at the letters on the ribbon.Are they in the middle of the ribbon or are they at the top or bottom of the ribbon? middle of ribbon is correct.

IBM Wheelwriter 3 - Cannot get the complete word - Middle part of word is white


Type on a two part form if the carbons are goog then you have a ribbon problem. Look at the ribbon. Do the letters overlap (ribbon feed) If they don't fall in a line near the center of the ribbon (ribbon lift) Check for folds in the ribbon.

IBM Wheelwriter 6-Letters striking paper above


Put in a multi part form and type if the carbons come out OK the the ribbon isn't lifting, Wiggle the big black gear on the R. side of the carrier back and forth. They do get tooth for tooth when they get old. If the print on the copies id bad or not there you need a print solenoid cap. We sell them for 20,00 including instructiond and shipping.
