How do we change the pitch on a Smith Corona SD770 typerwriter?

I believe that one of the keys in the top row is labeled pitch above it using the alt key with this key should do it.

How do you change the pitch or size of the type? The typewriter has 3 pitch settings, but we cannot figure out how to make the adjustment.

hold down "code" key and press 6 for 10 pitch. "code" key and press 7 for 12 pitch. "code" key and press 8 for 15 pitch. to change type size or style you have to replace the daisy wheel.

How to change the pitch?

Here ya go...

Margins and Tabs
Margins and tabs for both Type Mode and Mem Mode are set in Type
Mode, but can be changed in Mem Mode when text is recalled for
editing. Margins and tabs are set using the typing scale which appears
on the display in Type Mode. A blinking cursor indicates the typing
position. The letter “L” indicates your left margin setting. The letter “R”
indicates your right margin setting.
NOTE: In Mem Mode, the margins and tabs used when the text
is created will be saved with the text and recalled with it,
even if they have been changed.
In Type Mode, to signal that you are near the right margin, the
typewriter will beep 5 spaces before the margin. In Mem Mode, the text
will wrap automatically when you print.
Margins are preset depending on the pitch setting, which is the number
of characters per inch. They are:
10 Pitch 12 Pitch 15 Pitch
(Pica) (Elite) (Micro)
Left Margin 12 14 18
Right Margin 72 86 108
New margin settings remain until changed again.
1. Move the Mode Selector to Type. A typing scale appears on
the display.
2. Move the cursor using the Spacebar or Back Space to the desired left
margin setting on the scale.
3. Press Margin.
4. Move the cursor using the Spacebar to the desired right margin
setting on the typing scale.
5. Press Code + Margin. A beep confirms each new margin setting.
6. You can change to Mem Mode, if desired.

Take care,

How to change the pitch

Since you are not exactly sure what model Smith Corona you have I can only guess at the trouble you are having. Look on the left side of your keyboard for a slide level for the 10, 12 and 15 pitch selection. If it is in 15 pitch select either 10 or 12 pitch. Or, "If" one of your key tops have the word, "pitch" on it you might need to hold down the code key and the key that has the word, pitch on it.

usually there is a "CODE" key on the keyboard. This is to be held down while pushing the pitch key (10 -12- 15) may say Pica-Elite-Micro.
On some models there is a actual switch to move to the 10-12-etc.
I hope this is helpful and solves your Problem.
