I have instructions for recalibrating the screen on an XL-6000, which is similar enough that it should work; however, give it a try at your own risk. I would point out, though, that at this point you probably have nothing to lose.
While the machine is turned off, you hold down the scissors button, reverse button, and the green/red light button all at the same time. While pressing these buttons, you turn your machine on and can let go of the buttons. You take the pointy end of your lint brush and use it as a stylus to touch a little red dot on the screen (that also has that pen looking thing that I had messed with and that caused my trouble), the dot will move to another position and you will touch it again. It moves again two more times, and each time you will touch it with the pointy end of the brush. Then you will touch the treasure chest box on the screen to save what you did. You will then turn off the machine and turn it back on, and then things work again!
Since you can't get any response to your Menu-Norm-Prog-Rep-Set-or Help on your touch screen but you can get into your stitches, It does sound like you need to re-calibrate your touch screen. Normally you would get into your Set Menu to access your touch screen calibration. But as suggested on another solution. You turn off your Des 1, Holding in the reverse button (bottom left of the eight buttons) and the pivot button (the second one from the bottom of the four buttons) at the same time and turn on your machine. This is the Service menu that pops up (try not to touch anything on this screen, it could really mess things up if you don't know what you are doing) After this screen pops up go over to the eight buttons on the far left of your machine and touch the needle up, needle down button (top right button of the eight) the Calibration Screen will pop up on your touch screen (two plus marks labeled 1 & 2) In your sewing sitting position touch the center of the #1 mark and then the #2 mark. Once you've done that the Service Screen will pop back up. Shut off your Des 1 and restart it normally. Try getting into your different menus- Menu-Norm-Prog Etc. Hopefully that fixed your Calibration issue!
** Note: If the service menu doesn't pop up when trying to hold in these 2 buttons together and turning on your Des 1 the buttons weren't held in properly and you need to turn it off and try it again.
Hopefully that helped you out!!
1. Turn off 2. on Sewing arm above needle there are a series of buttons 3. Hold down bottom 3 buttons 4. While holding turn on machine 5. Using scribe 6. Touch the centre of each + as it appears 7. It will go Centre bottom rh centre top lh as you select each + position it moves of it's own accord. 8. Turn off machine 9 Turn on and test.
Important sometimes this does not entirely fix prob!! Simply do it again "Yahoo"" Some mechanics will try to tell U the screen is on it's way out Bollocks just calibrate. Thanks CYA
Try touching around the button on the screen. Touch above, below,left & right moving farther away from center. At some point it may clear. If so, use the same method to calibrate your touch screen in the "set" menu. If not, go back to your repair facility and have them recalibrate in the service mode.
Check that the button used to snip your thread at the end of your seam is not stuck. Mine will sometimes stick and if I just touch it again it will again activate and the red start/stop button will work again.
Yes, I have a solution for this problem. Your screen needs to be recalibrated and you can do it yourself. Don't you wish they would just tell you this stuff instead of charging you an arm and a leg? Here's what to do: Before turning on the machine, press the start/stop button, the reverse button, and the needle position button all at once with one hand (one finger on each button). Hold them down and turn on the machine. What will come up is a recalibration screen. You will see the numbers 1-5 with a little plus sign beside them. Find a small blunt object (I used the tip of a mechanical pencil with the lead in instead of out) and while holding the start/stop button, touch the plus sign beside 1-5 in numerical order. Then, turn the machine off and on again in the normal way. This should recalibrate the screen. Pass it along, people! This is something no one should have to pay for!
