Print wheel stuck at right side and won't return

Problem as above. On several previous occasions if the wheel went beyond the right margin set, it would get stuck, but with a little encouragment it would come back.  Now it is permanently stuck.  Any suggestions? It is actually a 48D Word Processor Typewriter

How do I increase the margins on the typewriter


To set a margin beyond the left or right margin, move the carrier (or cursor) to that margin, press the Margin Release key, then proceed to move the carrier (or cursor) to the desired position. Then, press the Left or Right margin key to set the new margin. A beep will sound indicating the new margin has been set. When you set a new left or right margin, the previous margin is automatically cleared.

Alternatively, you can type beyond the right margin by pressing the Margin Release key and then continue typing when the carrier (or cursor) stops at the right margin. To type beyond the left margin, press the Margin Release key and then the Backspace key to move the carrier (or cursor) to the position where you want to start typing.

Remember to always use genuine Swintec ribbons and lift-off tapes for your Swintec 7040, which can be found at Swintec Typewriter Supplies .

The left margin is stuck and the release margin works only the first time after turning on the typwriter. I can set the margin at a point on the left side, but after a few times of hitting the return key,...


Put a shot of WD40 on both sides of the silver shaft that the carroer slides on. If that doesn't do it put some on the carier motor bearings. The front one can be reached from inside of the T/W the rear one yuo will have to remove the case of fish the straw thru it. The motor is located on the R. rear corner.

How to use the margin release for Brother EM-530


Is Margin Release on it's own separate button on the EM-530? If so, then to move beyond a margin:
  • Use Return or Tab to go to the left or right existing margin.
  • Touch Margin Release.
  • Use the Backspace or Space bar to go beyond the margin in question.
  • If you want to set a new margin, then go to the location you want to have it and touch the Left margin or Right Margin button.
Some models may require the CODE key to access one or more of these functions. If the function name is not printed on the top of the key, but on its front or on the surrounding plastic above the button, press and hold the CODE key while touching that button (just as you hold the Shift key to type capitals). The CODE key might possibly have a different name; chances are it's color will match the functions it works with.

Can't get the left margin to change, it is stuck way over on the right side and when I hit return it goes to about the center of the typewriter


Hi,
On carriage return the machine locates LH margin. In your case the LH margin is set in centre.
Press the margin release key when at the margin location position.
Use the backspace key to return to the extreme left.
Space forward to were you want the new margin.
Press Margin Left set.

The printer will print OK from the desktop, but when I print from emails it cuts the right margin back about 2" - nothing will print on the right hand side of the page. I tried dumping the driver program...


Dear Glenn27,
As you mentioned, printer works fine normally however the issue is only while printing emails.. so I would like to know the email program that is in use .. I mean, do you use Outlook, Outlook Express or webmail or Lotus notes etc..
If this is a repeated question then I would like to apologies as we experts are not allowed to peep into other experts' solutions so I cannot see the responses by the previous expert.

Also please let me know the following printer settings ..
AUTO WRAP, RIGHT MARGIN, LEFT MARGIN,

What happens when you copy the email text to a standard text editor like Notepad or Ms Word and then try printing .. does it still print with right margin extended?

Waiting for your response.

Regards,
Srinivas

Problem with konica minolta paper margin


You don't have any solution but to increase the above margin to be equal as the bottom margin. To successfully print the pages, this printer need a larger bottom margin compared with the above margin. Just use the 'Center on page' option from your graphic application.

Your problem seems to be due to worn out of rollers. Try a less glossy paper and you can find the difference.
