TO my knowledge there is no way to bypass the onscreen display on these typewriters and have it act like a regular typewriter... That was the whole point of these machines was the "word processing" aspect. Back in the day that was revolutionary and noone could dream that you would want to disable it.

I am triple checking on this for you now, but I am quite certain there is no way to truly disable that.

Thanks, let me know if you have any questions or concerns, just reply to my answer here and I will be right back with you.

    That is a good question.. I guess you need to type each section on the display and then have it "write" it out, even if it is just one or two characters as in a date.

    I am trying to find the manual on this to confirm the fact but it is very difficult to locate on a device that is nearly 30 years old at this point.

    I definitely will, I should have something for you in the morning, I am heading to bed here shortly. Please hold off on replying until at least 5 AM Eastern Time... basically if you reply sooner and I don't respond to you within 3 hours it "locks" me out of the question and I can't help any longer. But feel free to reply any time during the day tomorrow, or at night, just any time after early morning so I can get it in time.

    Thanks

    No from what I am seeing the aforementioned scenario is definitely the case and not much documentation exists any more. You may want to look into just getting a regular type writer, they can be had for less than $10 out there..

I have a a Lexmark Wheelwriter 3500 and it has the delayed printing function, well this does not seem to be working correctly it is typing before it should. what can i do to correct this problem?


If it types as you press the kets delay print is turned off, press the print mode key on the r
R. side until Dl prt is on the display. If it just starts typing at a the same position every time you probably have the R. margin set there and auto return on (CODE R).

With a startype 3, do you have to use the delay function ( where you type then return to get type to print)?


The mastertype 3 is the same machine as the nakajima ae710. Go to NADIST.COM, click on current models you will find a manual there, it will tell you how to get out of the delay print mode.

Need to be able to get typewriter out of auto mode to manual mode. It prints what you type after you press the enter key, but need to complete a form - need to type as I press the key to ensure the...


Look for a delay print mode - probably a slide switch. If not, check out to see if there is a code or control button. Usually works by holding the code button in conjunction with another key. ie: Code and "D". Model # would be a help.

Someone used the typewriter and hit some code in error.


If it is in the delay print mode it will print when you hit ret. If this is not the case you probably need a print solenoid cap, they are available but a little tricky to install.

How do i turn off the delayed type on a ibm wheelwriter6


at the very top right of your keyboard there is a "print mode" key
press this key until the note in the left lower coner of the display says "char print"
however in delay print you can correct mistakes before you print - saves on correction tape

There should be either a switch or a coded feature that is set to "delay" print usually you have to hold the code key down then press the key button (probably one of the number keys)under the feature that says delay.
