I have a brother AX-25 and when it is turned on it will make a fast clicking noise and then just beep no matter what until it is turned off. What is wrong with it and what do I do?


Turn off the typewriter, open the top-cover and inspect the area around the carrier for any damage or foreign objects.
2. Move the carrier towards the center of the machine.
a. When moving the carrier manually, it should be difficult to move, but it will move under steady pressure.
b. If the carrier moves freely, the drive mechanism may not be connected properly.
3. Remove the ribbon and inspect the cartridge for damage. Turn the colored knob on the left side of the cartridge to remove any slack from the ribbon.
4. Check the correction tape to insure that it has not become tangled ordamaged.
5. Close the top-cover and restore power to the machine.
If the problem persists, your machine may require service.

The number and timing of beeps will tell you what's wrong. You'll have to find the motherboard manual to find what the beeps mean though. Would be worth taking the RAM chips out, blowing any dust away and putting them back in.

Olympia Startype electric typewriter , make a funny noise and won't move carriage. Can not get it to work.


Turn it off and see if the carrier will move back and forth by hand if it will but feels a little gummy spray a little WD40 on the silver shafts that it slides on. If it won't move by hand look for debris in the carrier area.

Carrier stays to the left


Look inside the machine and make sure nothing has fallen into it that may be blocking the carriage from reaching it's "home" position. Sometimes a lift off spool will fall off and do that.
