You probably have the right margin set to close yo the lrft and have auto return on. To turn off auto ret. hold the code key and touch "R". To move the margin tab to the rt. side and touch rt. mar. key.

What does RELOC key6 mean on Brotehr GX-6750? Not BOLD and not Backspace1/2. Just plain RELOC?


Relocate, on any typewriter, generally is used to take you back to where you left off typing. Example, you type a line and see an error at the beginning. You back space to correct it, hit relocate and it will return to where you stopped typing.

My IBM Lexmark 1000 Wheelwriter auto corrects last letter typed after I hit the space bar.


Sounds like a keyboard problem, either it is failing or there was a spill on the keyboard. Contact George Beyers Co. For a rebuild or replacement. 800-392-8085

Return isn't working


If it dosen't do anything you probably need a keyboard, if it returns part way and spaces up put some WD40 on the silver shaft that the carrier slides on and on the carrier motot bearings (R. rear corner inside of case.

The print solenoid has the plastic cap on the end broken or desintagrated. i fix this all the time. also make sure you didnt turn on the lang feature. that will keep your carrier in one spot for certain foreign symbols. to clear it hold down the features key next to the space bar and hit the lang key with the features key depressed.
