Need to unlock the margins of a Brother ML500 memory Typewriter


Move the carriage (print head) to the margin you would like to clear. When you hear the beep, hold down the [ALT] key and press [3]. Now use the backspace or the space bar to move the carriage to where you want the margin set. Now hold down [ALT] and press [4] to set the left or [5] to set the right margin. For your further reference, I have included the keyboard special key chart. You might need to download the pic and zoom in to read it.
