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

Changing Margins

Cannot find a picture of this keyboard however the process would be similar to this.  Move (return) the carrier to the left margin. Find the margin release key. It mat be labled M REL.  or M. R. or something similar.
  You may have to use it in conjunction with the code key, if this is the case the M REL or M. R. will be on the front of the key in a different color lettering.
 Press the margin release key and backspace to where you would like the margin and then press the left Margin key.   If these keys require the code key you will need to hold the code key down while pressing the release and set keys.
The right margin will reset in a similar fashion only space past the margin after hitting the release.
Hope this helps.
