Turn off the machine and see if the carrier will move back and forth.
If it jams look for debris that interfears with movement.

How do I increase the area where I can type?


Press margin release key, move carriage using backspace to where you want the left margin to be and press left margin set key. Repeat for the right margin, use space bar to advance the carriage and press the right margin set key instead.

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 .

How do i release the tab position?


At each tab stop, press the "tab release" button. Then tab to the next tab position and do the same. OR

You can put the machine in "service mode" which will erase all tab stops and reset your margins to their default positions. Easily done by turning the typewriter OFF. Then while off, press and hold "mar rel" (margin release) key on upper left side of keyboard. While holding it down and keeping it down, turn the typewriter ON. Then take your finger off the Margin Release key. The typewriter will start typing all by itself. Turn the typewriter off, then on. That will reset everything. All tab stops will be erased and margins reset to their defaults.

You can reset all functions to original settings by doing this simple self test.

3. While holding down margin release key, turn on typewriter.
4. release margin release key
typewriter will now begin to type on it's own.
5. Turn typewriter off and then on again
all settings will now be cleared.

Margin Release


Try holding down on the MR (margin release) key and turn on. Machine will print a few lines with all the letters. Turn off and then on and try. Also make sure someone has not switched the key tops for left marging and right margin, I have seen this "joke" played on people. Can you set either margins?
