Sounds like a seperating keyboard. look at the bottom of the KB and see if the plastic buttons ore missing, if so it needs replaced. Contact Geo. Beyers Co. at 800-392-8085.

When I press Tab, the PrintWheel goes all the way to the right. How do I set a permanent Tab to indent the first line of a paragraph?


Hi Jean, all you need to do is move the carriage to the spot you want to place a tab and then press the tab set key. Key may be labeled as " T SET", located on left side of keyboard. You can put as many tab sets as you like.
If that does not work, you may need a new keyboard. Keyboards are starting to wear out due to age.

Can someone advise why a IBM Wheelwriter 15 by Lexmark typewriter keys "1, Q, A & Z" will not type? Everything else on the keyboard works except for these keys.


Sorry it took a while to respond. The keyboard is failing due to age, very common problem. I get refurbished keyboards from EBM, ph.# 800-832-6522. that should take care of the problem.

How do you reset the margins


Hi:

to reset the left margin press the Mar Rel key on the left side of the keyboard once. Either space or backspace to the point where you want to reset the margin and press the Left Mar key once. To set the right margin just space to the point where you want to reset it and press the Right Mar key once.

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.

Lexmark 1500 typeover


There are a few possibilities, first check to see if it is in the language mode, light on the rt. side code "L" will get you out of it. If that is OK the keyboard may be selecting the wrong keyboard. Press and hold code key, press and release the "L" key, type 001, release the code key. If this solves the problem. check the keyboard connectors. If they seem to be fully plugged in you will need a keyboard.
