Perhaps the cat set the L. margin allthe way to the right. Press the mar rel key, backspace to the left end and press L. mar key.

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 .

Stuck cursor


Check all keys and make sure none are stuck down. This will lock up the keyboard. Any lights flashing? Any beep patterns?

Trying to get the margin move to the left or right beyond where it is set.


Try touching the margin release key, back space to the new location then hold down the code key while pressing the 7 key.

Swintec 2000 Margin


You should reset the margins where you would like them. To do this, go the the file screen and press MARGIN. Press <--- to change the left margin, or ---> to change the right margin, or the up arrow to change the top margin, or the down arrow to change the bottom margin.

Do one at a time. When you choose one (i.e. <---), the message "LEFT MARGIN SETTING" appears on the screen and the cursor moves to the left margin column automatically. Move the cursor to the desired location by using the arrow keys. As you move the cursor, the corresponding margin mark moves along with it. The press "DO" to set the new margin.

Hope this helps.
