It can be a little confusing on this machine. To reset the left margin, (at a position to the left of the margin), go to the left margin, hold down the ALT key, then push the key under where MAR REL is printed at the top of the keyboard. Then, using the BACKSPACE key, move the printhead to the position where you want the left margin set. Then hold down the ALT key and hit the key under L MAR. The left mar. should now be set at that location. To set the left mar. to the right of where it is, just move the printhead to where you want it and hold down the ALT key, and hit the key under L MAR. The right mar. set works the same way.

How do I do a left or right margin release??


Hello,

You need to release both the margins before being able to set them again or to get rid of them all together.

To release the margins, you need to press the "alt" button and the number 3.

This should release both the left and the right margins, so if you only wanted 1 reset, you will need to set the one you wanted to keep over again.

Thanks,

Pat

Margin settings


You have to hold the magic margin button down while you move the carriage all the way to the left, then release the margin button. Then repeat for thr right margin. Hold the right magic margin button down while moving the carriage all the way to the right, then release the margin button.

Resetting the margins on a manual typewriter.


I can't be for sure if these are auto set margins, but it sounds like they might be. If they are, first move the carriage as far to the right as you can. Hold the Left Margin Set (not Margin Release) lever as you move the carriage all the way to the left. Release the Margin Set Button or Lever. Now hold the Right Margin Set Button or Lever (not the Margin Release), and move the carriage all the way to the right while holding the Margin Set. Once the carriage is all the way to the right, release the Margin Set. Move the carriage to the place you want to set your left margin. Hit the Left Margin Set and then release. Move the carriage to where you want to set the right margin. Hit the Right Margin Set and release it. It gets confusing, but Margin Release does not set margins. Its sole purpose is only to bypass the margins. Hope this helps.

Margin Release for Brother GX-6750 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.
