Brother ax-26 typewriter "cover open"

Brother ax-26 typewriter shows "cover open" when it isn't. Tried opening and closing cover several times - no change.

    Electronic typewriter displays message "Cover Open" when turned on, buttons are inoperable because of error message. I replaced the ribbon, but the cover is completely closed to the best of my knowledge. Any ideas?

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.

Need user manual for brother ax310


Brother has some of their manuals on their support site: http://www.brother-usa.com/Support/ . I found FAQs for the AX300 and AX350, among others listed. However, no manuals were available. The manual for the AX-325 is available, http://www.brother-usa.com/VirData/Content/en-US/Typewriters/Consumer/UsersManual/UM_AX325_GX_6750_EN_5674.PDF .

I did find the manual for the AX-310 in German here: https://preview.u-manual.com/preview-manual-for-free-212176/others-brother-ax-310/page-1.html .

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

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.
