Your problem is most certainly with the buttonhole switch. Firstly: Look if the buttonhole lever, left back of machine, is push up in position. The beeping sound is a warning message. Secondly Remove the light cover, left of the machine, loosen back screw and remove left hand screw completely. Check for a small black electric switch, follow the brown and green elecrtic wire, just back of the light. If you push the BH lever up and down the switch finger should also move up and down. If it stays down, the machine will not work and give a beeping sound. If the switch finger is stuck, push it up with the BH in top position. Hope this will help you

I do not have a fancy Brother machine. From what I understand, you just need to do a zig-zag stitch around the "rectangle" that will become the button hole.
You could forego whatever instructions they provide and just set your stitch width as appropriate and then move the stitch type to a thin (close together stitching) zig-zag, just shy of "satin stitch" (which is just sewing back and forth all in the same place, and therefore--useful for embroidery).
Sometimes easy does it can be the ONLY way to get things done. :) Sorry I don't know more about your specific issue but maybe the old school way will help.
You need to adjust the needle timing - called "timing the needle".
How do to that is usually included in the service or repair manual for your model of machine. There are various online shops where you can order this.
Also, the machine is pretty similar to the Single 7422, and there's an ehow article on how to adjust the timing on that model that you might find useful.
are you getting a visual signal on your LED display ? have you tried turning the machine off & waiting a few seconds & turning it back on again have you tried cleaning the bobbin area for loose threads & lint? how many beeps are there? do you have a instruction manual for the machine? if not singer has one for free pdf download
Go to the singer website
Go to the home page
Go to customer service--click on it--it will show a small menu--click on instruction manual
In the box put the model number (example 7422 ) & click search
Is your button hole lever down? I had the same problem after sewing a button hole and couldn't figure out why I couldn't return to normal sewing. Once I raised the button hole lever the machine worked again.
There are several sensors on this machine that just start causing the machine to malfunction for no apparent reason. One is one the bobbin winder, one on the buttonholer, and one under the machine which workd with the feed. It is far from an exact thing. If you can get to them, sometimes loosening them, moving them about then tightening them seems to 'fix' them. Sometimes not. Wish we could be more exact in explaination but sometimes we will move them repeatedly then they start working. It is hit and miss.
