Question about IBM Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I cannot type on my IBM Wheelwriter 5. When I press a key, the ink-tape advances and the mechanism moves forward on the page, but I think the letter is not actually striking the ink-tape.

Typewriter won't erase letters completely.


Correction tapes do have a shelf life and can dry out. You should try replacing the correction tape and see if it is better. If that does not fix it, does the tape lift up high enough to cover the entire letter? If not, you have a lifting problem and will need a tech to fix it.

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.

The print solenoid has the plastic cap on the end broken or desintagrated. i fix this all the time. also make sure you didnt turn on the lang feature. that will keep your carrier in one spot for certain foreign symbols. to clear it hold down the features key next to the space bar and hit the lang key with the features key depressed.
