Question about Lexmark Wheelwriter 2500 Typewriter

1 Answer

Lexmark isn't recognized by all my programs

Something not quite right about my Computer settings or Lexmark. When I try to print if its some of my programs my computer keeps saying I need to install a printer. Other programs give me the drop down menu and I have to click on the Lemark item but not all programs will give me a drop down menu and those are the ones that act like I don't have a printer at all. Example is Microsoft Works and some other programs that aren't Microsoft. So its not just a Microsoft thing.

    Oh yes, this computer is a Windows Vista. Could that be part of the problem?

    Ya, I realized after I posted it that something was strange about this area. I just thought all Lexmark 2500 Series were printers. Heck I didn't think typewriters even existed anymore.



    Thanks!

May I suggest that you post this under lexmark printers rather than typewriters you will probably get better help.

Look for debris on and under the printed circuit board, if that isn't the problem you probably need a power supply or a board.

When typing the letter don't appear


If they don't print until you hit the return key you are in the delay print mode, use the print mode key on the R. side to get out of it. If it isn't printing at all the plastic print solenoid cap is broken. We sell them with shipping and instructions for 20.00.

How do you turn the printing sound off as you type?


If you are talking about a beep on each key depression CODE "S" if you are talking about the printing noise you must have the display option, if this isn't a WW6 but a WW30 ets there is a key in the right thst says print mode.

First try another printwheel, check for bent spokes on the P/W. If all is OK try a little WD40 on the front and rear bearings of the selection motor. It is located below the ribbon deck near the center of the printer.

The letters do not print on paper


Hi:

You either have a sticky print solenoid or the rubber bumper on the end of the print solenoid has deteriorated with age. This is a very common problem with that vintage Wheelwriter. It is an easy fix for a qualified tech who has the right part. It's not really something a user could tackle themselves.
