Question about IBM Wheelwriter 30 Typewriter

IBM Personal Wheelwriter typewriter

Sometimes when you turn on the computer the 3 green lights at the right bottom flash with the 1st and 3rd lights only and when you try to type or advance paper it just beeps. Turning it off and on alot of times sometimes makes it work. Eventurally it will work. What could cause this? Thank you for your help..

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.

Are you Sure that the computer model is Dell Optiplex GX260? Because looking at the manual diagnostic lights are found at the back. and the fault can be determine If the ABCD lights are yellow or green. But None the less 2/3 Depicts a hard drive problem while 3/4 depicts a memory issue.

Hard drive Issue:

1. Disconnect all non essential cables at the back of the computer. Leave only the mouse, monitor and keyboard. See if it boots up normally
2. If it boot up fine. try plugging one peripheral at a time until you find which peripheral causes the computer not to POST (Power on Self Test)
3. If you still getting problems, Follow these steps
4. To access the BIOS you must tap F2 or delete key upon turning the computer on
5. Try to look for the Hard drive if it is detected by BIOS if not got to step 9
6. Look for Boot Sequence or anything that is associated Boot
7. The Order boot of must be 1st: DVD Drive, 2nd: Hard drive, 3rd: Network etc.
8. Save the changes and Restart
9. If you still get the same message I suggest that you take out the hard drive and put it back in until it is detected in BIOS
10. If Step 9 did not work I think you need to replace the Hard drive

Memory Issue:

1. Open the chassis of the computer
2. Try taking out all memory modules
3. Rub the metal contacts of all memory with a pencil eraser
4. If more than one memory. Put one memory first and turn the computer on. If it turned on add another memory and turn the computer on. Repeat these steps until you determine which memory is faulty or all memory module contacts needs cleaning

From what you have said it sounds like your battery might be the problem. Have you connected the computer to the wall and tried to turn it on. Is the same happening then?

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.
