Re: cant find margin release
Generally, the way the margins work is, wherever the printhead is positioned, when you hit the right or left margin set, is where the margin is set. To reset the margin you must move the printhead to where you want the margin set, and hit the appropriate mar. set button. to move the printhead past where the margin is set, you must hit the "mar rel" button, and then backspace or space to where you want he printhead positioned. On machines without a "mar rel" button, you just use the "backspace" or "spacebar" to move past the margin. You can't release the margins permenantly, you can only move them, or move past them using the above mentioned processes.

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.
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.
space or backspace to the place where you want the left margin. You may have to use the margin release key to go past the present margin. When you get the carriage to where you want the margin, depress the left margin set key. Some have L mar and R mar keys, also some use the code key and another key to set.
First find the margin release key and press it once. Then use the spacebar to move the carrier forward and reset the right margin. Or again use the margin release key by pressing it once and then press and hold the backspace key to move through where the left margin was and reset it at the point where you want it.
Move the carrier to the place you want to set the left margin by using (SPACEBAR) or (BACKSPACE). If you need to move outside the current left margin, press (ALT) + (M REL) (3). Press (ALT) + (L MAR) (4). The left margin is now set.
Move the carrier to the place you want to set the left margin by using (SPACEBAR) or (BACKSPACE). If you need to move outside the current right margin, press (ALT) + (M REL) (3). Press (ALT) + (R MAR) (5). The right margin is now set.
1) Move the carrier ro the place you want to set the left margin by using [SPACE BAR] or [BACKSPACE]. If you need to move outside the current left margin, press [ALT]+[M REL (3)]
2) Press [ALT]+[L MAR(4)]. The left margin is now set.
To set the Right margin:
1) Move the carrier ro the place you want to set the right margin by using [SPACE BAR] or [BACKSPACE]. If you need to move outside the current right margin, press [ALT]+[M REL (3)]
2) Press [ALT]+[R MAR(5)]. The right margin is now set.
That is directly out of the manual. I will upload the manual to FixYa, and you will be able to view it from the ML-500 Typewriter's product page: http://www.fixya.com/support/p131634-brother_ml_500_typewriter
Typewriters have alimit to how far to the right or left that you can set margins. Once you use the alt & 6 key to bypass the current margin setting then move to the new setting then hold the alt key and touch the 7 key to keep it in the new position.
