Check the keyboard connections. Open the top cover and look just below from the top. You will see two ribbon cables. Make sure they are fully inserted. Are any of the keyboard lights flashing?

The beeping problem is that spell check is on try code 1.

I'm not sure what your question is but it sounds like you are in caps. Try code C.

SOURCE: character spacing

There is no pitch switch for this typewriter. The only way that you can change the pitch is by changing the printwheel that has the pitch you want. So if you want to type in 10 pitch you have to install a 10 pitch printwheel the same for 12 and 15.

SOURCE: 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.

Storing information on the lexmark 1000 typewriter

For the LexMark Wheelwriter 1000 you can only "Reprint" the information you have typed. Once you turn off the machine the "reprint" mode will not longer retain information.

Lights blink and machine beeps

Check the flat connector that goes to the indicator lights the edge of the keyboard sometimes wears into itand causes a reset sequence.

Check the connectors from the keyboard to be sure they are plugged in fully, check to see if you are in language mode (light on rt. side of keyboard) CODE "L" ,if these are OK then you probably need a keyboard.
