IBM Wheelwriter 6 Typewriter - while typing, characters just quit printing on paper. Checked ribbon, machine etc. Everything checked out?? What could be the problem.


It is probably the print solenoid that has a broken cap. I have seen a few advertisers that sell the repair kit with instructions. It is fairly simple to repair.

WHEEL IS STRIKING BUT NOT PRINTING...AFTER PULLING & PUSHING THE HEAD BACK & FORTH SEVERAL TIMES A TINY AMOUNT OF INK IS HITTING THE PAPER BUT STILL NOT READABLE


Your print solenoid probably has a broken cap. There are some companies that sell the "kit" with instructions on how to replace the cap.

Characters do not print.


The plastic cap on the print solenoid plunger is probably broken they are available but a little tricky to install.

Ribbon has been replaced now won't type


The most likely problem is the plastic cap in the print solenoid plunger is broken they are available but a little tricky to install. The soleniod is round and just inside the l. printer side frame.

Brother CE-70 typewriter. Was typing perfectly well. Over about 15 characters the impact on the print head reduced to nil. Although printhead appears to strike the daisy wheel the character does not strike...


Make sure that the ribbon is moving. If characters are piling up in the same spot on the ribbon you will get this problem. Easiest fix is to replace the ribbon. Many brand new ribbons can have a problem. If this dosent solve the problem it may be a mechanical problem with the mechanism that drives the ribbon, requiring a technician to repair.

Characters fill in intermittently.


This is a common problem with old supplies stored in a humid environment. Try leaving ribbon in an air conditioned environment for a couple of days to see if it helps. Otherwise buy a new sealed ribbon to try. Also push the hammer buy hand and see if it moves in and out freely and quickly. If not, the hammer needs some lubricant and or adjusting.
