Sounds like you need to reset your right margin. Spacebar to the right as far as the carrier will go. Hit the Margin Release key and then continue to spacebar to the right where you want your right margin set. Press "Code" and "Right Margin Set" (or similar name, not sure of exact key name here) to set your new margin. Should work ok now.

Hope this helps!

My question is not about a washing machine. the question is about a typewriter model ax-25 Brother

Hello, Enrique -

I hope I am safe in assuming this was your previous question which somehow was posted in the Washing Machine category:

I have the same problem, machine turs [sic: turns] on but nothing happens, that is the question?

Machine turns on, light is on when button is depressed but nothing else happens. what is wrong?
[End quote]

To clarify: You have a Brother electric typewriter, Model AX-25 and it does not turn on.

The first thing to check is if the typewriter is plugged into a working electrical outlet. :)

Next, I found the web page for your model typewriter, with Frequently Asked Questions:

One of the questions there refers to lack of power:

The answer includes a link to locate an authorized repair center.

Best wishes

In need of a brother GX-6750 typewriter owners manuel please help

First press the Code key and Q simultaneously. That will reset the wheel position. If it clicks or otherwise fails to type properly, pull out the wheel and inspect it. One or more of the types may be bent. In that case, the wheel needs to be replaced. Good luck finding the part.

Typing problem

Need to be more specific on the problem. What state/country is Kerala in? Wherever it is, the service center/repair shop is probably in the nearest big city. Look in the yellow pages under typewriter.
