Question about Swintec 7040 Typewriter

Poor quality impression

I am having poor quality printing on single pages and NCR forms. The impression control is set to the max. The repair person could not correct the problem. I am having to type everything using the bold feature which slows me down. Otherwise I need to type and retype the same word several times.

    I was also surprised that the repair person couldn't repair my typewriter (Swintec 7040). The first thing the cute little old repairman did was to tell me that there wasn't anything he could do to take care of the problem and that all of these typewriters had the same problem, it all depended on the type of paper I was using.



    So he cleaned the typewriter, wrote out a bill and left, and I am still having to type everything in bold.

Hi, Check the advance of the ribbon cassette after each print. There should be a small gap between each print. If the print looks like it's jumbling together on the cassette then the Multistrike feature has been activated and on a normal correctable cassette this will produce terrible printing on paper. To fix press and hold down the code key, and press the full stop. Test the printing

There is a yellow lever on the left side of the typewriter that is an adjustment for multi-part forms. Try moving it forwards or backwards.

    Try calling another repairman who knows the Nakajima or Swintec typewriters ask if they have scamatics and know about variable resistor 1 adjustments.

I'm not quite satisfied with color and black tone. What settings would you recommend.


You do not say what exact model of printer you are using so any answer will be generic rather than specific.

Poor colour and black tone can be as a result of various factors:
1. Poor paper quality that you are printing on.
2. Poor ink or toner quality being used.
3. Use of Ink / Toner saving modes or software.
4. Worn or damaged printer components such as the fuser roll on a laser printer and other similar consumables with a limited page use life.
5. Poor quality content being printed, i.e. low quality images being printed at too high a print resolution.

6-part NCr paper form being used. Pages 1 and 2


This is a problem with your paper. Using multi-part forms on an impact printer will get lighter print on each layer working from the top form to the bottom. The "carbon" paper has to impact the paper hard enough to make the marks. If your top and bottom copies look good but some in the middle are light it is a problem with the "carbon" paper and not the printer.
Now IF the top page is light and each copy under that is getting lighter then you need to close your platen gap (the lever on the right side of the machine mark A B C) go one click at a time (darkening) until the print quality looks good (or you go too far and it pinches the paper and jams *not good*)

Oki C3100 - v poor print quality


Hi Errol

The way to identifiy your problem is to send a full colour print to your printer and open the top just as the paper starts to come out . if you then remove your toner / drums for all the colours you can see the transfer belt if the quality of the image that you can see on the transfer belt is good and clear your problem is with the transfer form the tranferbelt to the paper and not any toner /drum issue and the most likley cause is the transfer belt itself "but before you relpace it remove it and clean around the electrical contact points and generally make sure the internals of the printer is free of loose toner .

the messages you get for cartridges other than the original are not trustful. You will get the right reading for original(from Brother) cartridges. Some ink is poor for printing photo quality.

not any refillable ink is right for printing photos, sometimes too dark, sometimes you don't get the right mix of colors.

Wheelwriter 6 will not print dark on 4 page NCR paper.


First try a new IBM brand ribbon part # ends in 999. NCR paper can be difficult try the code "Q" this should increase thr impression.
