How to clear history of tabs and margins to start over on the Brother GX-6750


Unfortunately, I don't think you can reset all of the margins and tabs at once. To reset a specific margin, move to that margin and then press ALT and the 6 key simultaneously. (That's the Margin Release.) If you are resetting the left margin, press the backspace (or space) key until you reach the new margin location. Then press Alt + 7 (L Margin) to set the new margin. For the right margin, press space (or backspace) until you reach the new margin location. Now, press Alt + 8 to set the new right margin location.

You can clear all of the tabs by pressing and holding Alt + 0 (tab clear) for over half a second.

The manual for the GX-6750 is available from Brother on the product support site: http://www.brother-usa.com/support/ModelInfo.aspx?R3ModelID=GX6750 . Click on the Manuals & Documents tab. The direct link to the manual (in English) is http://www.brother-usa.com/VirData/Content/en-US%5CTypewriters%5CConsumer%5CUsersManual%5CUM_AX325_GX_6750_EN_5674.PDF / The procedure to set the margins is on page 2. The procedure to set the tabs is on page 5.

I hope this helps.

How do i release the tab position?


At each tab stop, press the "tab release" button. Then tab to the next tab position and do the same. OR

You can put the machine in "service mode" which will erase all tab stops and reset your margins to their default positions. Easily done by turning the typewriter OFF. Then while off, press and hold "mar rel" (margin release) key on upper left side of keyboard. While holding it down and keeping it down, turn the typewriter ON. Then take your finger off the Margin Release key. The typewriter will start typing all by itself. Turn the typewriter off, then on. That will reset everything. All tab stops will be erased and margins reset to their defaults.

How do you clear a tab someone preset. when I get to the far right of page and hit return it will on return to a tab. How do I clear all the preset margins or tabs.?? thanks


To clear margins, you have to hit the return button to find the left margin, then hit margin release and back space to move the margin left or spacebar to move to the right, then hit left margin button to set the new position. Right margin now. Hold spacebar down and find right margin position, hit margin rease and either spacebar to the right or backspace to the left to the new margin position then hit right margin button to set the new position. Tabs now. hit the tab key, when it goes to the first set tab, hit the tab clear key, then hit the tab key again, then tab clear again etc.

How to clear margin when in use


Left margin...use the code key (colored)
Move the carriage to where you want the margin, use margin release if you have to go beyond the present margin, and use the margin set key to set.
You have to reset a margin. can't just clear one.
Can set margins at each end of the typing line, then you will have no margins.
Hope this helps!!!

I have a swintec 2600 i cannot get it to clear out the tabs and i need to type beyound were the tab is


You must mean the margins. To move the right margin further to the right. Move the carriage to the right margin then depress the mar release key then space over further to the right to a new position and depress the right margin key. You should here a beep. If you just want to type further to the right of the margin, when it stops typing, simply depress the mar release key and continue typing.

Resetting the margins on a manual typewriter.


I can't be for sure if these are auto set margins, but it sounds like they might be. If they are, first move the carriage as far to the right as you can. Hold the Left Margin Set (not Margin Release) lever as you move the carriage all the way to the left. Release the Margin Set Button or Lever. Now hold the Right Margin Set Button or Lever (not the Margin Release), and move the carriage all the way to the right while holding the Margin Set. Once the carriage is all the way to the right, release the Margin Set. Move the carriage to the place you want to set your left margin. Hit the Left Margin Set and then release. Move the carriage to where you want to set the right margin. Hit the Right Margin Set and release it. It gets confusing, but Margin Release does not set margins. Its sole purpose is only to bypass the margins. Hope this helps.

Margin Release


Try holding down on the MR (margin release) key and turn on. Machine will print a few lines with all the letters. Turn off and then on and try. Also make sure someone has not switched the key tops for left marging and right margin, I have seen this "joke" played on people. Can you set either margins?

Margin clearing and resetting


You cannot "clear" the margins. You have a left margin and right margin. They MUST be set somewhere even if they are set at the extreme left and right of the carriage. This part is IMPORTANT!!! Some functions (like right margin or margin release) may be written in a different color or shade. If they are, you must hold down the CODE or FUNCTION key while touching that function. In any case, the CODE key or similar will be the same color as the function you are trying to access. Get the printer where you want the margin to be. If you want the left margin set to the left of the current margin you will have use the MARGIN RELEASE key first. This may be labeled MREL or MAR REL or something similar. Backspace to where you want the margin to be then press the LMAR or LEFT MARGIN key. That will set the left margin at that point. Repeat the process for the right margin. Hope that helps Ed
