CAN'T GET THE MARGINS TO RELEASE

HOW DO I RESET IF THE MARGIN RELEASE BUTTON WON'T WORK

Posted by on

  • Anonymous Sep 10, 2008

    I have something in memory and when we print it stops in the center and we have to turn off the system and try again.

  • lcwilke1 Nov 09, 2008

    I hit return and it won't go all the way back to left margin.  It won't release or backspace.  I have to turn it off to get it back to the set left margin. Sometimes it works right and sometimes it doesn't.  It takes forever to type an invoice.  It doesn't always stop in the same place either when I hit return.

SOURCE: When typing, left margin resets itself at the right margin.

The silver shaft that the carrier rides on is probably gummy put some light oil on it and move it back and forth.

How to reset the margins on Brother EM-530


On most electronic typewriters you change the margins by pressing the code button and holding down the press r margin or l margin on the key board. You want the carrier to be where you want the margin set. To set margins beyond the right or left margin move the carrier to the margin and press margin release to go past the margin. Then press code left or right margin.

How do I do a left or right margin release??


Hello,

You need to release both the margins before being able to set them again or to get rid of them all together.

To release the margins, you need to press the "alt" button and the number 3.

This should release both the left and the right margins, so if you only wanted 1 reset, you will need to set the one you wanted to keep over again.

Thanks,

Pat

Resetting the margins on a manual typewriter.


I can't be for sure if these are auto set margins, but it sounds like they might be. If they are, first move the carriage as far to the right as you can. Hold the Left Margin Set (not Margin Release) lever as you move the carriage all the way to the left. Release the Margin Set Button or Lever. Now hold the Right Margin Set Button or Lever (not the Margin Release), and move the carriage all the way to the right while holding the Margin Set. Once the carriage is all the way to the right, release the Margin Set. Move the carriage to the place you want to set your left margin. Hit the Left Margin Set and then release. Move the carriage to where you want to set the right margin. Hit the Right Margin Set and release it. It gets confusing, but Margin Release does not set margins. Its sole purpose is only to bypass the margins. Hope this helps.

Cant find margin release


Generally, the way the margins work is, wherever the printhead is positioned, when you hit the right or left margin set, is where the margin is set. To reset the margin you must move the printhead to where you want the margin set, and hit the appropriate mar. set button. to move the printhead past where the margin is set, you must hit the "mar rel" button, and then backspace or space to where you want he printhead positioned. On machines without a "mar rel" button, you just use the "backspace" or "spacebar" to move past the margin. You can't release the margins permenantly, you can only move them, or move past them using the above mentioned processes.
