Does it power up? Does it go thru its initialization routine?

If it doesn't power up, it could be a blown fuse. It is located on th circuit board undrneath the top cover of the machine. This requirs removing I think 4 to 6 screws, on th bottom of the machine. UNPLUG THE MACHINE frm the wakll outlet.Check for 0 ohms with an ohm meter. If not 0 replace fuse. size and amperage is stamped in the silver ends.

If it powers up, but doesn't do its initialization, there is a plastic arm, on the left (ithink), or right side of the typewriter that goes into a slot to engage a switch. It could be bent or broken. If bent, GENTLY straighten it and see that it is lined up with slot. f it is broken, you can fabricate an arm with a piece of hard plastic and super glue it to th stub of where the arm used to be. Or, you can fold up a small piece if typing paper and stick it in the slot, carefully, and the machine will do it's "dance". Then youshould be able to use typewriter.

If these 2 solutions are not useful, you may need to find a service company to resolve problem.

Special paper tray is empty error

Sounds like someone requested A4 size paper in a print job instead of the normal Letter size paper...
Try putting regular letter size paper in the bypass tray and then set it up as A4 size...the print job should then print out on that paper.

I have an ax 60 nakajima typewriter and the ceilings are not writing the letters that should appear when you mark this messy writing, not the logical order

If this says that the tops of the letters are not printing Be sure that the ribbon is properly installed and isn't folded.

I have a Brother AX- 25 and I cant get it to print in Bold print, can someone help me with setting it up to print bold?

Here is where you buy a users guide.
Ribbon printers are switched to bold by sending an 'ESCAPE SEQUENCE' to the printer just before you send the print out for that line of text. The escape sequence should be in the owner's manual.
Word for Windows will Automatically print correctly in bold if the text is bold, if the right driver is loaded. I cannot find a driver. The driver should be IN Windows.

Brother AX-25 typewriter won't print

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.

Doesn't print correctly

Current printers do not have a 'built-in' font or character set. The printers only print what they are told to print by the application from which they are printing. What program are you printing from? Does it do this with all programs? Check printing from very basic programs like Notepad or Wordpad (print documents that are at least a couple of pages long). If the printer prints correctly from there, you may need to contact the publisher of the program that is giving you the weird printing.
