Look closley at the carrier is it positioned on the rail correctly? Can you move it left or right by hand, if it moves faily freely it is ok and it has an other problem.

I have a brother AX-25 and when it is turned on it will make a fast clicking noise and then just beep no matter what until it is turned off. What is wrong with it and what do I do?


Turn off the typewriter, open the top-cover and inspect the area around the carrier for any damage or foreign objects.
2. Move the carrier towards the center of the machine.
a. When moving the carrier manually, it should be difficult to move, but it will move under steady pressure.
b. If the carrier moves freely, the drive mechanism may not be connected properly.
3. Remove the ribbon and inspect the cartridge for damage. Turn the colored knob on the left side of the cartridge to remove any slack from the ribbon.
4. Check the correction tape to insure that it has not become tangled ordamaged.
5. Close the top-cover and restore power to the machine.
If the problem persists, your machine may require service.

The typewriter is suddenly squeezing all the letters really close together???


Depending on the typewriter, there is a "PITCH" control putton or keyboard function, 10 pitch is pica (10 characters per inch) 12 is elite or 12 characters per inch and there is a 15 pitch which will crowd letters together. set the pitch to 10, make sure the printwheel is a 10 pitch wheel and this may work. Also there is a chrome rod runs from left to right, place a small drop of 3/1 oil on tis rod and move the carrier back and forth either by hand or tab and carriage return...

You may have some broken wires in the print head wiring harness about 1" from the L. side frame.

Lower case letters to high when typing< capital letters ok. thank you


MAKE SURE YOUR "PITCH SELECTOR" SETTING MATCHES THE PRINT WHEEL INSTALLED. THE PITCH SELECTOR IS THE LOWER OF THE 3 SLIDING SWITCHES ON THE L.H.S. ;...THE PRINT WHEEL WILL HAVE THE PITCH SIZE INDICATED ON THE WHEEL ITSELF.

When I turn my typewrite on, it immediately makes a high pitch beeping noise. Will not type? what is my problem? Thank you Felicia


Check the flex cable harness that moves as the carriage goes back and forward left to right.
Possible one or more of the wires have broken there.

Carrier stays to the left


Look inside the machine and make sure nothing has fallen into it that may be blocking the carriage from reaching it's "home" position. Sometimes a lift off spool will fall off and do that.

Pitch Beeping


make sure the printwheel is locked in place, and the cover is closed. otherwise it is probably the main board or power supply. take to a repair shop for evaluation
