Unable to set margins

The ML-500 will not allow me to clear and set margins. We are limited to the last 1/4 of the line, so we are unable to type full forms. I am new to this office and can not find the original book that came with the machine.

    Hi John,

    Thanks for trying. It did not work, however. I believe the typewriter is finished. Now I must shop and present a recommendation for a new typewriter...

You have to release the margins before you can set them.
[ALT]+[M REL] (#3 key)

To set the Left margin:

1) Move the carrier ro the place you want to set the left margin by using [SPACE BAR] or [BACKSPACE]. If you need to move outside the current left margin, press [ALT]+[M REL (3)]

2) Press [ALT]+[L MAR(4)]. The left margin is now set.

To set the Right margin:

1) Move the carrier ro the place you want to set the right margin by using [SPACE BAR] or [BACKSPACE]. If you need to move outside the current right margin, press [ALT]+[M REL (3)]

2) Press [ALT]+[R MAR(5)]. The right margin is now set.

That is directly out of the manual. I will upload the manual to FixYa, and you will be able to view it from the ML-500 Typewriter's product page: http://www.fixya.com/support/p131634-brother_ml_500_typewriter

Use your space bar to move carrier to desired location, hold down Alt key button on bottom left (next to space bar) and press the number 5 numeric key on top row. That should set your right margin.

How to clear margin when in use


Left margin...use the code key (colored)
Move the carriage to where you want the margin, use margin release if you have to go beyond the present margin, and use the margin set key to set.
You have to reset a margin. can't just clear one.
Can set margins at each end of the typing line, then you will have no margins.
Hope this helps!!!

Margins won't stay cleared from line to line. Character spacing is wider than what it was yesterday.


On the L. side of the keyboard are some slide switches set the line space at one position and the pitch at 12, now space to the rt. margin press the mar rel key once space to where you want the rt. margin and press the rt. mar key.

Left and right margins of typewriter on Brother ML 500 Memory


Hi:

First find the margin release key and press it once. Then use the spacebar to move the carrier forward and reset the right margin. Or again use the margin release key by pressing it once and then press and hold the backspace key to move through where the left margin was and reset it at the point where you want it.

You have to position the carrier to where you want the margin using the space bar or backspace key. Once you get to the desired position you must press either the left or right margin button depending on which one you want to set. You may have to use the code button together with the margin button.
