To change the left margin, hit the return button which will take you to the left margin. Hit the margin release lever (mar rel) and then the backspace button to go farther to the left and stop where you want the margin to be. Hit left margin and that is where it will then be set.

Is the hammer striking with no impression? (Try something with a carbon in it to see if it prints on the copy. If it does you have a ribbon problem. If the ribbon dosen't lift try wiggling the large black gear to see if it frees up. or your ribbon may be so old that it won't transfer the ink. If the hammer is not striking the plastic cap on the print soleniod is probably broken, they are available for 15.00 but are a little tricky to install.

hope this helps

The WW3 resets margins and tabs to default on every power up. If the margins change while you are typing then the silver shaft that nthe carrier slides on is probably gummy. A shot of WD40 on both sies of the shaft shouls free it up.
