Go to the margin you wish to change, touch don't hold the MAR REL key, space or backspace to the desired location, press R. or L. margin key.
I believe the impression control is a slide switch on the L. side of the keyboard.

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 .

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.

Margins will not hold, have to keep resetting them.


Auto margins are permanently stored in the Swintec 8014S. If you set new margins within those margins, they should hold. If you set them outside of the auto margins you will have to use the MAR REL key to release the auto margins, and then set the new margins. All margins are set by pressing the Left or Right Margin Set keys.

These settings are stored in a memory circuit that is powered by a battery that is automatically charged when the typewriter power is on. If you still have trouble with the margins releasing after you turn off the machine, you can try one of the following:
(1) Keep your typewriter on for a couple of hours so the battery can recharge and then save your margin settings
(2) Replace the battery which may have died after all these years. You would need to bring your Swintec to a local dealer for the part and replacement service.

Hope this helps!

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.

MARGINS: Left margin space or tab to where you want margin set and depress the mar L key. Sometimes the key has to be depressed as you hit the code key. If you want to move carrige to the left, go to margin hit margin release and bk space to where you want. Same with the right margin only use th R margin key. Code key usually keys have second message are in green, yellow or red. Use code key with the small print on the key to activate that function.... Good luck
