Befor you try to change the margins put some WD40 on the silver shaft that the carrier slides on. Goto the margin, press but don't hold the mar rel key space or backspace to the desired location, press the set L. or R.

Turn the T/W off and slide the carrier back and forth. If it goes to the left then you have the L. margin set at 80.

Return to the margin, press and release the margin release key, backspace to the desired location, press the L. margin key.

Can't get the left margin to change, it is stuck way over on the right side and when I hit return it goes to about the center of the typewriter


Hi,
On carriage return the machine locates LH margin. In your case the LH margin is set in centre.
Press the margin release key when at the margin location position.
Use the backspace key to return to the extreme left.
Space forward to were you want the new margin.
Press Margin Left set.

My guess would be that the left and right margins are set at the same place. Try resetting the right margin and see if that's the problem. I used to experience this a lot with kids playing with the typewriter.

Move the printer to the margin using return button. Press the margin release button, backspace to where you want the margin to be, then press the left margin set. All should be good.

You have to hold the magic margin button down while you move the carriage all the way to the left, then release the margin button. Then repeat for thr right margin. Hold the right magic margin button down while moving the carriage all the way to the right, then release the margin button.

Swintec 2000 Margin


You should reset the margins where you would like them. To do this, go the the file screen and press MARGIN. Press <--- to change the left margin, or ---> to change the right margin, or the up arrow to change the top margin, or the down arrow to change the bottom margin.

Do one at a time. When you choose one (i.e. <---), the message "LEFT MARGIN SETTING" appears on the screen and the cursor moves to the left margin column automatically. Move the cursor to the desired location by using the arrow keys. As you move the cursor, the corresponding margin mark moves along with it. The press "DO" to set the new margin.

Hope this helps.
