Question about Brother Office Equipment & Supplies
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.
