Olympia Startype 3 Typewriter

This typewriter is about 3 years old. It is not holding the left margin anymore. It is ok for about 2 lines, then it moves 1 - 2 spaces, then it may go back to the first margin. Is there a setting that needs to be re-adjusted. Thank you.

Does it make a grunting noise? If so, it needs a couple drops of oil on the main support shaft. Also check the indent setting. You need to use the code key to activate or deactivate the indent.

Brother ml 500 memory typriter how do i move margin to right


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.

After typing first line, hit the return key. The carriage would not return to the far left margin...it only moved 12 or so spaces to the left.


The carrier slides on a silver shaft that is about 1/2" thick spray some WD40 on the shaft, if that doesn't do it you have to get some on the carrier motor bearings located under the case in the R. rear corner.

How do I re-set the margins?


using the space bar or backspace keys, move the carrier to where youwant the margin set, you may have to hold down the "ALT" button (2nd key from left on the bottom of the keyboard) and hit the "3" button (the one under wher it says "MAR REL") , to move past the margin. When the carrier is where you want the margin set, hold down the ALT key and then hit he key under where it says L MAR (for left margin) or R MAR (for right margin). the ALT key accesses all the function listed above the keyboard, the CODE key accesses all the functions listed on the keys themselves.

I have a Brother ML300 typewriter. I do not know how to get out of the tabs which are already set up in the typewriter. Could you help me?


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.

Problem as follows:- 1. The curser does not move to the folllowing line (below) after enter button pressed 2. How to re-set left & right margin Thank you, Husaini


If you mean that the paper dosen't space up you may have the lower feed rolls open (lever on top R. hand side)
To set the margins, go to the margin, press but don't hold the mar rel key, space or baclspace to desired position, press L. or R. margin to set it.

Cannot margin release ]3] to extend into hot aone


HOLD DOWN THE "ALT" KEY THEN HIT THE 3 KEY THEN USE THE BACK SPACE OR SPACEBAR TO REPOSITION THE PRINTHEAD. THIS WILL ALLOW YOU TO MOVE PAST THE MARGIN ONE TIME. IF YOU WANT THE MARGIN SET IN A DIFFERENT POSITION - MOVE THE PRINTHEAD TO WHERE YOU WANT THE MARGIN SET, HOLD DOWN THE ALT KEY AND PUSH THE 4(L MAR) OR 5 (R MAR)

Unable to set margins


To set the Left margin:

1) Move the carrier ro the place you want to set the left margin by using [SPACE BAR] or [BACKSPACE]. If you need to move outside the current left margin, press [ALT]+[M REL (3)]

2) Press [ALT]+[L MAR(4)]. The left margin is now set.

To set the Right margin:

1) Move the carrier ro the place you want to set the right margin by using [SPACE BAR] or [BACKSPACE]. If you need to move outside the current right margin, press [ALT]+[M REL (3)]

2) Press [ALT]+[R MAR(5)]. The right margin is now set.

That is directly out of the manual. I will upload the manual to FixYa, and you will be able to view it from the ML-500 Typewriter's product page: http://www.fixya.com/support/p131634-brother_ml_500_typewriter
