Question about Brother Office Equipment & Supplies
My Brother AX-25 typewriter when turns on, it makes a faint clicking sound from the motor on the left side but the head does not spin and space forward. If I remove the red connector marked P4(DC) on the PC board, the head will spin and press space bar will make head move forward but still won't print. All components on the head unit function ok (tested by apply DC directly to each component). Problem seems to be with the PC board. Have seen several AX-25s with same problem. Could be just a malfunction capacitors or resistors that can be easily replaced. If problem is with ICs then I am out of luck. Would like to fix it within reasonable cost. Hate to throw away an otherwise perfectly working machine and add to environmentally unfriendly junk pile. Can anyone help?
If the cams assembly in the carrier unit does not cycle properly the power on routing will not complete. This problem can be caused by worn contacts in the dc motor, causing intermittent or slow operation of the cams during POR or printing. This is common with older machines. I have replaced quite a few dc motors in carrier units of this style of printer. The motors are no longer available but they may be revived by spraying a good electronic cleaner in the holes of the motor to clean the brushes (RH SIDE). Take care to not damage the plastics of the case with cleaners. If you have many machines w/ motors, you may become accomplished at disassembling the motors and repairing the brushes, but this is difficult and time consuming.
