When I turn the typewriter on, it beeps 6 times and lights 1 & 2 start blinking. According to my user's guide, this means the printwheel and/or ribbon needs to be replaced. So, I replaced both and the problem continued. I then replaced the batteries, but nothing changed. I'm beginning to think the machine settings have been lost. Any help?
The prinwheel sensor is likely the issue. Move the carrier to the right, on the left side of th carrier toward the rear of the machine there should be a small black "flag" sticking out of the carrier. this should move freely in and out if it is not there or does not move the machine cannot detect the printwheel the sensor will need to be replaced.
You ca also check for debri down in the area where the printwheel sits.
