Margin Release problem

I just got a new 300 ML tonight and it is a nice little typewriter, but I cannot get the margin release to work. I hold down the Alt and the "MREL" (3) at the same time, and try to backspace to the left, but nothing happens...same for the right side. Any ideas?

Unlike the manual states, you have to release the Alt + MREL before you backspace past the margin. Then it works.

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 .

How do you remove the tab set


You probably have the L. margin set there. Return to that point, press but don't hold the MAR REL key, backspace to desired location, press L. MAR key.

How do I re-set the margins?


using the space bar or backspace keys, move the carrier to where youwant the margin set, you may have to hold down the "ALT" button (2nd key from left on the bottom of the keyboard) and hit the "3" button (the one under wher it says "MAR REL") , to move past the margin. When the carrier is where you want the margin set, hold down the ALT key and then hit he key under where it says L MAR (for left margin) or R MAR (for right margin). the ALT key accesses all the function listed above the keyboard, the CODE key accesses all the functions listed on the keys themselves.

The margin release is not working on ML 100 typewriter


You must have the carrier at the exact margin in order to release it. To release the left margin, hit the RETURN key, then MODE with Mrel. For the right margin Depress TAB or SPACEBAR to get to the margin and then MODE and MREL keys. NOTE: Make sure the typewriter is not in L/L MODE.

Margin Release for Brother GX-6750 Typewriter


Typewriters have alimit to how far to the right or left that you can set margins. Once you use the alt & 6 key to bypass the current margin setting then move to the new setting then hold the alt key and touch the 7 key to keep it in the new position.
