    I tried all your suggestions and none of them resolved my problem. I am asking FixYa not to charge my credit card any fee. I have taken my Swintec typewriter to a repair shop. Thanks for trying.

Hi,

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.

Thank You

I have a Swintec 8016 that doesn't have a "print" key. How do I print stored files?


Hi Linda, Once upon a time, I worked on Swintec typewriters. When you speak of printing do you mean to an external printer or just allowing the thy writer to to type out of memory? What kind of printer, what type of external port. Did it ever work? With what printer? I,m not familiar with this particular typewriter , give me as much info as you can , I mean anything you can think of . The smallest detail can tip the scale. You stated there is no print key, that tells me there must be an alternative way to print. let me know what you find out. If you can take a picture of the plug ports on the back and the keyboard, in this case a picture is worth more than words! Good luck. Bret... I was a typewriter tech for 7 years there are not many of us left.

I believe you go to the margin you want to change, touch don't hold the mar. rel. key (top L. of keyboard) then space or backspace to the desired location, press L. of R. margin key on the L. side of the keyboard.

Swintec 640 margin release


If it is the left margin, you touch the carriage return button to find the current position of the left margin, then touch the mar release button and backspace to the new left margin location, then depress the left mar key. You should here a beep. You are done.

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.
