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?

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.

Right margin will not release Can get to a certain point and it just locks up - Does this have anything to do with the Reloc button which I don't know how to use.


the RELOC button is for when you go back and make a correction, after you make the correction you hit the RELOC button and it will automatically go back to where you left off. if you are typing along and it stops typing and won't go any further, you are at the right margin. if you want to go past this point, you have to hit the MAR REL button. then hit the space bar or keep typing. if you want to move the margin, move the carrier to where you want the margin and hit R MAR, and that will set the margin at that point. works the same way for the left margin.

R margin is not in the right place


Not positive about but many electronics you must press and release the mar rel key for it to function.

Cant typer further than 10 characters


The trouble is probably the silver shaft that the carrier slides on is gummed up. Try a little WD40 on the shaft, if that dosen't work the carrier motor in the L. rear corner may need lubricated, WD40 will do that too.

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.
