Try a little shot of WD40 on each side of the silver shaft that the carrier slides on,. If that doesn't work you have to lube the carrier motor bearings the front one is accessable from the inside the rear one you may be able the straw thru the release lever hole.

The AT&T typewriters were made by Olivetti but it was a model not sold in the US so your chances are slim to none.

How do i release the margins to extend them out on the brothers sx-4000


Most of these small portable typewriters had a lot of "dual function keys".
What this means is some of the keys on the keyboard will have writing on the top and on the front of the keys. The color of the writing on the keys is usually different on the front then it is on the top. So if you need to use a dual function key you have to find the "mode" or "code" key to use in conjunction with these dual function keys. For example: the left and right margin keys could be on the same key. to access the one on the front of the key you have to hold down the "code" or "mode" key while pressing the dual function key. What you should be looking for is something that says MAR REL (margin release) > If it is on the top of the key then all you need to do is press it once and then backspace through your present left margin and then reset the left margin at that point. For the right margin just space over to it and press the margin release key again and then space over to where you want the right margin and reset it there by pressing the right margin key.

Good Luck

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.

How do I reset the margins for bigger paper?


Most of these small portable typewriters have dual function keys. You need to find the keytop that has Margin Release on it. It might say Mar Rel. If this in in a color that is different then what ever else is on the key then this is a daul function key. What this means is that you also have to look for a code or mode key. Once you find that hold that key down while pressing the Mar Rel key once. Then release both keys and use the backspace key to back up through where your left margin is currently set. Once you have done that you can reset the left margin at that point by findind and pressing the Left Margin key. Note that the left margin key might also be a dual function key.
You can extend the right margin by spacing to it and then doing the same procedure above , but this time release the right margin and space throught it and then reset it where you want it.

Good Luck

Most electronic typewriters work the same way to change margin settings. You use the space bar to move to the desired location then press the right margin key. You should hear a beep. If you need to set it farther to the right of the current position, then use the space bar to move the carrier to the current position, once it stops moving then press margin release then space to the new position then press right margin key.
