Question about Lexmark Wheelwriter 1000 Typewriter

2 Answers

Typewriter problem Hello, I have a IBM Lexmark WheelWriter 1000 typewriter. The right side of the typewriter where you usually have your lights (i.e bold, caps lock, lang, re PRT) are all lit up. The part inside where the ribbon cartridge is does not go back and forth when you first turn it on, and if you hit any key it doesnt respond. Is this typewriter fixable? Andrea

It could be a bad carrier return motor or the carrier is stuck . Turn it off and try to move the carrier left and right it should move with light pressure if it don't try wiping the round rail it slides on with a light oil then work it back and forth a few times repeat until it moves when turned on.

WHEN I TURN ON THE IBM LEXMARK ALL LIGHTS GO OUT AND KEYBOARD DOESNT WORK


Your probable problem is either the power supply or function board. The fact that the lights go out usually means it is not a keyboard problem. Does the machine beep and if so, how many times?

IBM Wheelwriter 1000 Lexmark - Machine beeps and Lights 1,2 & 3 blink. Replaced batteries and still doesn't work.


This is an error code that the carriage or printwheel can't find it's home position. About the only thing you can try is to replace the printwheel or inspect it for bent or boken spokes. If that does not fix it then you will need a tech to troubleshoot problem.

First try a little shot of WD40 on both sides of the silver shaft that the carrier slides on. If that doesn't do it you will have to get some on the carrier motor bearings located in the R. rear corner under the case.

Character spacing


Joany, look for a function,usually on the left side of the keyboard on the IBM,that has the markings 10,12 and 15. And if my memory is correct,there will be a series of lamps which light up at the selected pitch. I would look for a key marked "pitch" and press that. Good luck.
