Be sure that the ribbon L/O and P/W are properly installed, move the slide switches back and forth a few times, check that no keys are stuck down, With the machine off see if the carrier will move back and forth. If not a littlt WD40 on the silver shaft it slides on will help.

Good luck

The Swintec 7040 typewriter goes a few inches to the right and stops. How do I unlock?


My best guess is that you have the R. margin set there. Go to the stopping point, press but don't hold the MAR REL key, spce to desired location, press R. mar key.

When turned on - a beep is all i get-keys won,t work at all. 7040 swintec typewriter


Sounds like a broken wire attached to the carrier motor. If you remove the shell from the typewriter you can see the wiring inside. I suspect one of the wires has come disconnected or broken. Replace the wiring assembly or you can try to strip the two ends of the broken wire and twist them together, then use some electrical tape to secure.

When i turn it on it will beep every letter i enter but won't type anything it is a swintec model-600


try putting the machine in test mode. You can do this by holding down the margin release key while turning it on. Keep holding it down until it starts typing by itself. Then turn it off and on again and see if it works.

First check check the pitch selector switch to be sure it is not in proportional spacing. if it isn't push down on it and see if it goes away, if is goes away the keyboard needs repaired.
