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

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.

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.

Left and right margins of typewriter on Brother ML 500 Memory


Hi:

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.

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.

When typing, left margin resets itself at the right margin.


The silver shaft that the carrier rides on is probably gummy put some light oil on it and move it back and forth.

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.

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.
