How can I do to type sign @?

The Nakajima AE-740 has a secondary set of characters on the keys in the upper right. I suspect that this alternate set is currently enabled. Do you see a Downward triangle above KBII? If so, press and hold the Code key and then press 5. Release both keys and check if the Downward triangle has disappeared from the display. Now, you should get an @ when you press Shift and then type 2.

ManualLib has the manual for the AE-740 available, . The information on toggling the alternate key usage is on page 43 of the manual.

I hope this helps.

How do I reset the margins on a Nakajima typewriter model AE-740

If you want to set the machine back to factory settings do the following... switch the machine OFF.
While holding down the Margin Release key switch the power back ON. The machine will begin typing a pre-programmed test page....let it run for 5 seconds...switch the machine back OFF.
Give it 5 seconds and switch it back On and settings will be back to factory aware this will clear all memory of any docs or info you had in memory.

It sounds like a keyboard problem, maybe a spill, if so lit it sit on its side for a couple of days it may dry and heal itself, otherwise you will need a tech.
