Question about Brother SX-4000 Typewriter
A classic brother ax-12 was in great condition until a cable appears to have become detached inside; it seemed to be looped around 2 pulley type components and involved with moving the print "head" back and forth; i will be forever impressed with the powerr of the web if someone can give me technical tips on how to reattach this cable; also is nyone familiar with where i might download a brother ax-12 service manual (preferably free of course), thanks
The pulley is broken and you have to remove it and try to drill a hole to attach the cord. A new pulley should be available from Brother. I have seen repairmen jam a small piece of metal inside the cracked area, but it is a little bit tough if you have no experience. You have to remove the covers and the main logic board and the carrier motor asm. Then the pin holdong the pulley. A shop would charge about 50 dollars.
