First check for debris under or around the carrier, the put a little light oil on the silver shaft the carrier slides on WD40 works well) if that dosen't work and there is a squeel on tab of return remove the case and oil the carrier motor bearings at the rt. rear corner of T/W.

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 .

Use your space bar to move carrier to desired location, hold down Alt key button on bottom left (next to space bar) and press the number 5 numeric key on top row. That should set your right margin.

Brother typewriter Model GX-100, how to set up the right and left margin?


Normally, you must set the carrier or scale where you want it set on the left then press the left margin set button. Then move the carrier to the right to where you want the right margin set and then press the right margin set button. You may have to use margin release to bypass the previously set margins. Hopw this helps.

HOW DO YOU CHANGE CARRIER DRIVE BELT


Not to difficult. THe silver shaft that the carrier slides on has flats on the R. side, using a 1/4 " wrench turn it top to the back, then with the carrier to the right walk the shaft out to the left, move 5he carrier to the left and walk the belt off the L. pulley. The belt is held on by 2 screws.

If your belt isn't broken but just tracking bad adjusting the L. pulley to tighten the belt can sometimes stop that.

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.

How to set margins


after hitting the return key, the carrier goes all the way to the left margin. If you need the margin to move even more to the left, hit the margin rel key and backspace to the desired position and hit the mar left key. Same for the right margin, use the space bar to move the carrier all the way to the right margin and press the margin rel and move the carrier to the desired position and press the mar right key.

Brand new typewriter. Set up according to


When turned on the carrier must move to the left side frame, where it seneses the LEFT limit, then moves towards the right and parks at the Left Margin Position. Your problem sounds like something is interfering with the carrier movement to the LEFT limit (could be packaging). Turn the power OFF. Manually move the carrier to the RHGHT. Look inside the machine on the left side to check for foreign materials. Also check that the ribbon, correction lift-off tape, and printwheel are installed properly. GOOD LUCK!

I bought a --brother AX-400 electronic typewriter at yard sale... please help me set left and right margins...


Move the carrier to the desired position for the new left or right margin using "backspace" or "space"

To move beyond the position of a current margin, first position the carrier on the margin and press "alt +m rel"

When the carrier is on the desired position, press "alt + l mar" (if you are setting the left margin), or "alt + r mar" (if you are setting the right margin.)
The minimim distance between the left and right margins is two inches
