Brother ax-12 cable detached

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

    thanks for the suggestion! in looking at the pulley it does not appear to be damaged; it just seems like the cable ends popped out of the right side pulley (white plastic with grooves around the center for cable to spool); i guess if i could remove the white pulley, i might be able to superglue the cable back in; unfortunately i'm not even sure of how the cable should be oriented on the spool; i know this is an old unit, but is anyone aware of a service manual or related documentation freely available on the web that might be helpful? thanks again

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.

Is there such a thing as a co-ax cable to input converters?


Before you go that far, realize that the cable itself may be the problem. Usually poor picture quality can be traced to poor cable connections. Also, another possibility is poor connections inside the tuner of the set. I assume that you are using a cable box. Some of the newer boxes have direct video connections which will connect as you describe. Check the condition of all of the cables and connectors before yo invest in anything.

Keep us posted.

This is probably the ice maker water feed becoming detached from the back of the appliance. This is a fault of a leaky watervalve or low pressure allowing water to drip into the feed pipe where it freezes building up until the pipe blocks where water pressure causes it to bacome detached. Change the water valve and refit the pipe ensure there are no airleaks into the freezer.
