How to reset the margins on Brother EM-530


On most electronic typewriters you change the margins by pressing the code button and holding down the press r margin or l margin on the key board. You want the carrier to be where you want the margin set. To set margins beyond the right or left margin move the carrier to the margin and press margin release to go past the margin. Then press code left or right margin.

How to set l/r margins on brother model AX110


Usually on the Brother products you set the margins by pressing the code or alt key down and over the top row of numeric keys you will see MR (margin release) L margin or R margin, the numeric key below would then need to be pressed. This should set the individual margins.

How do I type to the end


Hello,
To reset the margins you need to first release the margins. Once you have released the margins you will be able to set the left and right hand margins.
Thanks,

Changing margins


To change or reset margins, the keys involved are the ALT key to the left of the spacebar, the #keys 3,4, & 5.

The ALT & '3' keys are used to bypass the set margins.

To bypass the left margin, move the carrier to the left margin. Press the ALT & '3' keys at the same time. Release them then backspace the carrier to the point the new margin is wanted. Press the ALT and '4' keys at the same time to set the new left margin.

To bypass the right margin, move the carrier to the right margin. Press the ALT & '3' keys at the same time. Release them and spacebar to the point where the new right margin is wanted. Press the ALT & '5' keys to set the new right margin.
The main thing to remember is to move the carrier to the point where the new margin is needed. ALT + 3 bypasses old margins, ALT + 4 sets the left margin, & ALT + 5 sets the right margin.

Margins will not hold, have to keep resetting them.


Auto margins are permanently stored in the Swintec 8014S. If you set new margins within those margins, they should hold. If you set them outside of the auto margins you will have to use the MAR REL key to release the auto margins, and then set the new margins. All margins are set by pressing the Left or Right Margin Set keys.

These settings are stored in a memory circuit that is powered by a battery that is automatically charged when the typewriter power is on. If you still have trouble with the margins releasing after you turn off the machine, you can try one of the following:
(1) Keep your typewriter on for a couple of hours so the battery can recharge and then save your margin settings
(2) Replace the battery which may have died after all these years. You would need to bring your Swintec to a local dealer for the part and replacement service.

Hope this helps!
