Question about Lexmark Wheelwriter 1000 Typewriter

1 Answer

Wheelwriter 1000 Thank you for your help. When you said to push down on the plate, do you mean the area that is under the ribbon? Sorry, it's been a few years since I've worked with a typewriter, I'm trying to get back in to the swing of things.

Make sure the platen (roller) is pushed down all the way. It must lock.
Also, see if the ribbon is feeding properly, characters should be evenly spaced on the ribbon. Other possible causes ..solenoid pad or selection plate, neither of which you can do yourself.

The correction tape is not working properly. Wheelwriter 1000


If everything was working befor the ribbon & L/O change Either the L/o is not properly attached to the ribbon or the ribbon and or L/O are old. Make some corrections then remove and look at the L/o, if the letters are near the center of the L/O the problem is the ribbon or L/o is old, if the print is on the top of the tape it is not properly attached to the ribbon or not coming out or the cassette properly.
If you have a fresh set or another T/W that works swap the ribbons and look at how they are attached.

For a picture ngo to lexmark.com and click your way to publications you will find a downloadable manual there.

IBM Wheelwriter 6 prints only top portion of characters


The platen is probably not all the way in. Be sure the black latches are lined up with the side frames and press firmly down on the platen.

hope this helps
