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.

    My typewriter has the same problem. If I turn it off and wait a period it will usually turn back on and type a few characters and then stop again.

My question is not about a washing machine. the question is about a typewriter model ax-25 Brother

Hello, Enrique -

I hope I am safe in assuming this was your previous question which somehow was posted in the Washing Machine category:

I have the same problem, machine turs [sic: turns] on but nothing happens, that is the question?

Machine turns on, light is on when button is depressed but nothing else happens. what is wrong?
[End quote]

To clarify: You have a Brother electric typewriter, Model AX-25 and it does not turn on.

The first thing to check is if the typewriter is plugged into a working electrical outlet. :)

Next, I found the web page for your model typewriter, with Frequently Asked Questions:

One of the questions there refers to lack of power:

The answer includes a link to locate an authorized repair center.

Best wishes

Need user manual for brother ax310

Brother has some of their manuals on their support site: . I found FAQs for the AX300 and AX350, among others listed. However, no manuals were available. The manual for the AX-325 is available, .

I did find the manual for the AX-310 in German here: .

I hope these manuals help. Brother didn't change their typewriters significantly between some models.
