Swintek Electronic Office Typwriter Problem

Our church has the above typewriter. I don't know how old it is. But I want to use it in the church library. When I turn it on, it seems fine. But whenever and whatever button I hit, it beeps without typing. Neither the index nor the reverse index works. It will not type or do anything. I have tried to move the print wheel by hitting the margin release, but no go. I have tried everything I can think of to make it work. There doesn't seem to be any batteries to be replaced. The manual does not mention batteries or this problem.

Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated!

You didn't say what the model is. First be sure the print wheel is properly installed, then turn off the T/W and see if the carrier will move back and forth easily, if not try a little light oil on the shaft that runs thru the carrier (WD40 works well).

Typwriter was dropped....when for example a.b.c. are typed, any random letters other than a.b.c. come up


To be honest when you drop something like this you may have bent the frame, cracked a circuit board, who knows???
You may have to take this to a repair facility and tell them what has happened.

Can you suggest a model for ARABIC & English letter Typewriter ?


It is unlikely you will get a typewriter with 2 languages....think of the problem of labeling the keys, as well as limited memory in a typwriter to contain both languages. Most typewriters are available in North America as either ENGLISH, FRENCH, or SPANISH. These being considered the most common languages.

The flywheel from my brother ml300 typwriter came off and i don't know how to put it back on


I assume by "flywheel", you are referring to the "printwheel" which is removable from the typewriter by unlatching the print hammer mechanism by pulling the black lever on the right side of the print hammer towards the front of the machine. To install the printwheel, drop the printwheel in its cartridge with the letters facing the paper, then push the print hammer assembly towards the paper to the latched position. Turn on machine, and the printwheel will spin and "home". If printwheel homing is not correct, repeat above procedure with slightly more pressure when latching the printwheel. (The printwheel must latch on to its drive spindle securely). Good Luck

How do I enable the BOLD feature on my Swintek 4040 typewriter?


Hi:

There should be either a mode or code key that you need to hold down while you are pressing the bold key. You should the see a little arrow light up under the bold function on the display if you do it correctly.

Good Luck

some typewriters have a carriage lock on the carriage to lock it in the center position, or it may have typet to the right margin which causes a typebar lock to activate untill you da a carriage return to the left side of the paper.

Will not type


If the 1, 2, and 3 line space keys are flashing in order, you need to change the two AA batteries that are located inside your typewriter.
