I cannot release the left margin on my Xerox Memorywriter 6015

I hit return, then while pressing the green code key I press the left margin key, but the margin does not release. The green code key works with every other function. Could the typewriter be broken? Or did another user mistakenly save settings that hopefully I can undo? Would appreciate some help. Thanks!

    Thanks, ****. I meant I press the margin release key, not the left margin key. Any other suggestions?

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.

SOURCE: Carriage return problem

If it returns with the express key the latching mech. on the rt. side is probably gummy. Take off the case, get some WD40 and spray the mechinism that latches the ret on the rt. side below the platen.

SOURCE: My IBM selectric II typewriter carriage stuck in right margin

Sounds like the return lever arm is not putting enough pressure on the return clutch, or the clutch is slipping. The exp key uses the same clutch but the pressure comes from your finger. Theres no way you can fix this yourself. Get an IBM mechanic.

Have you tried oiling it w/3-n-1 oil? Often the sticking problem is nothing more than it needs lubrication.

How do I increase the margins on the typewriter


To set a margin beyond the left or right margin, move the carrier (or cursor) to that margin, press the Margin Release key, then proceed to move the carrier (or cursor) to the desired position. Then, press the Left or Right margin key to set the new margin. A beep will sound indicating the new margin has been set. When you set a new left or right margin, the previous margin is automatically cleared.

Alternatively, you can type beyond the right margin by pressing the Margin Release key and then continue typing when the carrier (or cursor) stops at the right margin. To type beyond the left margin, press the Margin Release key and then the Backspace key to move the carrier (or cursor) to the position where you want to start typing.

Remember to always use genuine Swintec ribbons and lift-off tapes for your Swintec 7040, which can be found at Swintec Typewriter Supplies .

Occasionally, I still have to use a typewriter for some forms. I inherited a Xerox 6015 Memorywriter but I have no manual. Is there one online that I can download? Specifically, I'm trying to figure...


hit the carriage return key to put carriage at left margin. then hit your margin release key, then backspace key to put your carriage where you want it. then hit left margin key and that should set new left margin. good luck.

I lost the manual for my sx-4000. How do I release the margins.


  1. Press "return" key to left margin.
  2. Press "margin release" key once.

Can't get the left margin to change, it is stuck way over on the right side and when I hit return it goes to about the center of the typewriter


Hi,
On carriage return the machine locates LH margin. In your case the LH margin is set in centre.
Press the margin release key when at the margin location position.
Use the backspace key to return to the extreme left.
Space forward to were you want the new margin.
Press Margin Left set.

Changing Margins


Cannot find a picture of this keyboard however the process would be similar to this.  Move (return) the carrier to the left margin. Find the margin release key. It mat be labled M REL.  or M. R. or something similar.
  You may have to use it in conjunction with the code key, if this is the case the M REL or M. R. will be on the front of the key in a different color lettering.
 Press the margin release key and backspace to where you would like the margin and then press the left Margin key.   If these keys require the code key you will need to hold the code key down while pressing the release and set keys.
The right margin will reset in a similar fashion only space past the margin after hitting the release.
Hope this helps.

hold down the code key and press the margin release, to set margin, just hold code release margin, space over to where you want it and then press Margin set, left or right.
