Question about Swintec Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

Hi! We are having problems with one of our Swintec 640 typewriters. When we type and enter return it makes a ugh grinding noise. If we turn it off and back on it works for a while again before it repeats. Sometimes on 1 document we need to do this 10 times. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Mardelle, Arcadia Credit Union

When i turn it on it will beep every letter i enter but won't type anything it is a swintec model-600


try putting the machine in test mode. You can do this by holding down the margin release key while turning it on. Keep holding it down until it starts typing by itself. Then turn it off and on again and see if it works.

First check check the pitch selector switch to be sure it is not in proportional spacing. if it isn't push down on it and see if it goes away, if is goes away the keyboard needs repaired.
