Remove and clean out the printwheel area spray with canned air, There is a magnetic switch on the R. side of the R. side frame that will break, if so unhook a wire everything will work except the auto forms insertion.

When I turn typewriter on it blinks 6 times and 2 lights on the line spacing blinks. I've replaced wheel and cartridge; turned on and off - problem remains.

The keyboard is bad. You can try my tip under WW1000 or contact Geo. Beyers Co. @800-392-8085 for a ketboard rebuilt.

Will the carrier move yo the rt. with power off ? Try a little WD40 on the silver shaft that runs thru the carrier. Look for foreign objects and debris inside the t/w.
