IBM Personal Wheelwriter typewriter

Sometimes when you turn on the typewriter the 3 green lights at the bottom come on and stay on and when you try to do anything - it just beeps.....turning it off and turning it on several times sometimes helps the problem.

Check to be sure the keyboard is fully pluged in, if it is try pushing them while powering on, if that helps see my keyboard tip under WW1000.

I have a IBM Personal Wheelwriter 2 that when shut off, it lights up, but then shuts off. Sometimes it stays lit up, so we try not shutting off, but it's a problem.


I have never replaced an off on switch on a personal WW but it sure sounds like it is bad. You can buy one for 15.00 from us.

Check chrome carriage rail, make sure is clean with a slight amount of oil such as 3 n1. move printer back and forth, does it move smoothly. Also could be a bad on and off switch they do go bad I stock them just for this reason. Some times to get to work drip a small and I mean small amount of WD40 down the orange or red switch to allow it to get into switch contacs.

try turning the machine off put a SMALL amount of oil on the large round rod running across the typewriter manually push the print head left and right a few times to see if it will loosen up. The problem is usually caused be drying oil you may consider having it serviced by a pro.
