    Is it stored in a job? Do you have a manual for the typewriter?

    Yes, it is stored in a job. And no I do not have a manual - and don't want to purchase it just for this one dilemma.

You do not have to purchase a manual for this one job. There is a free copy at http://images.lexmark.com/publications/pdfs/2007/index/en.html
Just go to the bottom of the page for "Typewriters" and choose your model. I believe the answer you are looking for is on page 3-25. I have looked at it myself. Here are the steps.

Always open the storage before making a revision.
- The store light must be on.
Pressing Store + the number (1 to 99) always opens storage at the beginning of a job.
If you play back too far or want to start over:
1. Press Play to stop playback
2. Press Store + the number (1 through 99)
3. Press Play. (Playback starts again at the beginning of the job.)

Use the Correction key to erase unwanted carrier returns from Stored job:
1. Press Play or Play+Spacebar until the carrier return playb
2. Press the correction key.

After making a revision hold down Play while you press and release the Spacebar several times to make sure the next few characters play back correctly.

When revising indented jobs, be sure to stop playback at the word or character you want to revise. Remember, you cannot use the Correction key to erase characters typed before you press Code+Tab or Code+Crtn. Therefore, if you play back too far, you may need to start playing back again from the beginning of the job.

Let me know if there is anything else needed.

We have an old IBM Wheelwriter 6 Series II typewriter, but no manual. Need to know how do we program the typewriter to store information for forms that need to be typed that all have the same info?


First thing be sure the batteries are good. When it powers up it should beep once and the 1 light will come on. If that dosen't happen change the batt. and be sure the contacts aren't corroded.

There are 3 keys on the left side that say store, play and delete, hold the store while typing an address 01 - 99, release store, type info press store again. To print hold play and typa address. Delete works the same way.
