It probably needs a new board or power supply. You might try removing the cover over the board and look for staples or paper clips.

  • Ched that the line cord is securely plugged into the wall outlet
  • Check that the line cord is securely pluggted intor the back of the typewrtier (you can wiggle it while the power switch is on and see if the machine reacts)

If it does nothing no lights or beeps check the AC power source or the power cord. If the're OK you probably need a power supply or a board.
