No Typing, but Powers Up, brother ax-25

I have a Brother AX-25 typewriter that is also a word processor.  When I turn it on, suddenly the keys do not type and carriage will not move.  The text window comes on and the shift and caps lock show the red light.  The humming sound of the typewriter is gone and there is just a faint clicking sound.  Does anyone have any idea what has happened?  It appears to have power but nothing moves.

Brother ax-26 typewriter "cover open"

Small projection under lid has bent or broken. Wedge something in the hole to operate micro-switch. If not effective the maybe micro-switch has moved or is faulty. Short out the wires to micro-switch in that case.

Turn off machine. Unplug machine for at least 1 minute. Plug back in and turn machine back on. If it still doesn't work, check to see what typing mode it is in, and change it if necessary.
