Problems with WRU action.

#1

Beitrag von JDAngus »

For some odd reason, when my Lorenz Lo-15c receives the WRU symbol, it prints the Maltese Cross on the printer paper, but does not trigger the Answer back drum.
Sequence of events:
Pressing either the "Here is" button on the front of the keyboard, or pressing down on lever F triggers the Answer Back sequence.
This is a short video of the two levers at the base of the printer. One (A in the .pdf file) moves as it should. The other does nothing.

So, now where do I look as to why the other lever does nothing?

Hi Jeff,

I don't have a Lo15, but had a similar issue with a T68d. One of the levers connecting the printer with the lock-out mechanism of the WRU drum was sticking due to a frozen joint.

This is the lever that doesn't do anything. It's supposed to unlock things so the answer back works.
