The left margin on anything I print has suddenly dissapeared. It is not a problem with the margin settings on my word processing program, as everyone in the office is having the same problem. How do I fix this? It's driving us nuts & cutting off important info.

Re: Left Margin Has Dissapeared
Check the side guides on the supply paper, are the centered up?
If it has removable paper trays, make sure the paper tray is in correctly.
If it has movable guides, make sure the paper is where it should be and the edge guides are up against the paper.
If it has more than one paper tray, print to the other tray, does it have the same problem?
If only one size or source is having the problem then the problem is in that tray, but if all sizes are having the problem then it is something in the machine.

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 .
check your print settings before you print anything. the left margin might be from the ink cartridge not going all the way over or it could be blocked by something. have you tried printing on just the internet alone? or have you tried printing on wordpad too?
The keys used for margin control on the brothers is the ALT key just to the left of the space bar, and the #3,4,& 5 keys.
To move outside the present margin to the left, backspace to the left margin. Press the ALT and '3' keys at the same time to bypass the margin. Back space past the margin to the point where the margin is to be set. At the point you want the new left margin, press the ALT and '4' keys at the same time to set the new left margin.
To move outside the present margin to the right, spacebar over to the right margin. Press the ALT and '3' keys at the same time to bypass the margin. Then spacebar over to the point where the new right margin is to be set. Press the ALT and '5' keys at the same time to set the new right margin.
The basics are that the ALT +3 releases margins, ALT +4 sets the left margin at the point of the carrier, ALT + 5 sets the right margin at the point of the carrier.
use the "margin left" key to set left margin, and the "Margin Right" key to set the right margin. Move to where you want the margin to be and press the right or left margin keys. to go beyond a margin (to set margins "outside" the current settings, press the MAR REL (Margin Release) button while at the current margin
You set the margins by putting the printhead where you want the margin set, and holding down the CODE key, push the key under where L MAR or R MAR is printed, (above the top keys on the keyboard) depending on whether you want to set the right or left margin.
If you want to set the left margin to the left of where it's set, hold down the CODE key and push the key under MAR REL. Then using the Backspace (or spacebar, if you backspace too far) position the printhead where you want the mar. set and holding down the CODE key, hit the key under L MAR.
Setting the right margin works the same way.
You cannot "clear" the margins. You have a left margin and right margin. They MUST be set somewhere even if they are set at the extreme left and right of the carriage.
This part is IMPORTANT!!!
Some functions (like right margin or margin release) may be written in a different color or shade. If they are, you must hold down the CODE or FUNCTION key while touching that function. In any case, the CODE key or similar will be the same color as the function you are trying to access.
Get the printer where you want the margin to be. If you want the left margin set to the left of the current margin you will have use the MARGIN RELEASE key first. This may be labeled MREL or MAR REL or something similar. Backspace to where you want the margin to be then press the LMAR or LEFT MARGIN key. That will set the left margin at that point. Repeat the process for the right margin.
Hope that helps
