How do I increase the margins on the typewriter

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 .

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.

I can't set my margins. If I turn the typewrite off and on, the margin goes to the left side. If I then type and hit the return key, it goes to a spot farther to the left. IF I try it again it goes even...

First put a little shot of WD40 on the silvhaft that the carrier slides on (both sides) That should stop the margin changing. You can get a manual at NADIST.COM click on current models.

How do you set margins

You move the carrier, with the space bar or backspace key, to where you want the margin to be set.
If the carrier stops before you get to where you want to set the margin, then locate the ALT key at the bottom left on the keyboard, hold it down, then locate the key directly under the words above the keyboard that say M REL (the 3 key) and push it. Then move the carrier with the space bar or backspace key. (whichever direction you want to go)
When the carrier is where you want the margin set, hold down the ALT key and push the key under where it says L MAR (4) to set the left margin, or R MAR (5) to set the right margin.
The ALT key works with all the functions listed above the keyboard.
The CODE key works with the functions/charachters printed on the keys themselves.

How to set margins

after hitting the return key, the carrier goes all the way to the left margin. If you need the margin to move even more to the left, hit the margin rel key and backspace to the desired position and hit the mar left key. Same for the right margin, use the space bar to move the carrier all the way to the right margin and press the margin rel and move the carrier to the desired position and press the mar right key.

If the carrier (print head) goes to the left when you turn the T/W on then try this.
Return to the L. margin, press mar rel key, backspace to the location that you want the margin, press L. mar key the wheel should spin and reset the margin.

Ae-800 making a loud noise

Look for debris under or around the carrier (print head) try doing the start up with the ribbon & L/O tape out. Put a little WD40 on the shaft and rails that the carrier slides on.

Return sticks

Try putting a few drops of light oil on the shaft that the carrier rides on and the pulleys that the cables are on (WD40 works well) also look for debris under the carrier.

It most likely beeping because it cannot make its resetting movement. That is,it cannot "find-out" where its left margin is. There may be something hindering the actual movement of the print carrier. Check inside the typewriter by lifting up the top cover and move the print unit by hand. It should be able to move from the left to right-hand side of the typewriter unhindered. The shaft that the print unit moves on should be clean and it may have gathered dust etc,so give it a wipe with a clean cloth (lint free) with a small drop of light oil on it.. Replace the top cover and switch on the machine
