I just spent a couple of hours and finding a parts schematic to determine how to get the cover off. There are two screws visible inside the printer once the top cover is removed. These need to be removed. Also (and most important, there are two square openings immediately above the control panel in the lip where the top cover rests. Carefully using a screw driver you insert it into the opening to press a tab which will release the top of the control panel, this then tips out and you can remove the ribbon cable attachment. In the area where the control panel sits there is one screw you need to remove. On the bottom of the printer there are two rectangular openings near the front edge of the printer. These contain tabs that you need to release with a screw driver, when the tabs are released the front edge of top cover should come off and the whole cover tips to the back and unhooks from the back of the printer. Of course, remove all paper trays and the rear tractor feed (if you have it). I really hope this helps!

My shuttle came out and dont know how to put it back.

Hold the bobbin case with open side towards you. The thread should unwind on the top of the bobbin from the left. Place it in the case so when the thread is pulled into the slot in the side, the bobbin rotates clockwise. Pull thread to the left under the tension spring and fit case and bobbin over the central spool inside hook assembly. With the locating finger in its recess, press case home and it will lock into position with a click..

LS-1520 Brother sewing machine hook pick thread up takes it around half way and gets stuck...any ideas. the timing seems to be right??!!

try changing needles
clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for loose thread or lint
make sure the bobbin is inserted into the bobbin case correctly--if the
machine won't pick the thread up from the bobbin correctly take the bobbin
out of the case & turn it around & try it that way.

Please call service h4-00

H4-00 indicates that the fuser unit (right hand side where the hot rollers are) is not heating up. It could be a blown heater lamp or a blown thermal limiter. You can try resetting the code by pressing: #,*,C,*, 1,4, then choose yes or 1. this will reboot the machine. The h4-00 code may return but this is worth a try. Good luck.

Brother LS 1520 I was in zig zag mode and broke a needle. Now that I have replaced the needle, the needle thread will not pick up bobbin thread.

Are you sure that you replaced your needle right? The flat side must face the rear of the machine and did you put your needle on a straight stitch? I hope it didn't mess up your timing. But try this and I have my fingers crossed for you that it is something simple.

Fault/error 6A00 for my canon MP830 flash light and no paper (fault) roller defect can I fix this ? John

6A00 is AP position error.Possible problems in:
- Sheet feed unit (QM2-1220)
- Logic board assembly (QM2-1520)
First, make sure there is no paper jam anywhere in the machine.. look inside, rear, where the paper tray (output) is, etc to see if you find any shreds or torn paper that may have gotten stuck and you didn't see.Look carefully in the zone of Purge unit, using flashlight in the right side on printer.If this not help your printer need service.

Having trouble with my bobbin thread

Check your tension disks, with your presser foot up, and the tension dial on zero. Sometimes a piece of cotton breaks off between the tension disks and then prevents the disks to work properly. Also make sure when you thread the machine, the thread does go through the disks and over the take up lever. After you threaded the machine, before putting the thread through the eye of the needle, lower the presser foot and while pulling on the thread with your left hand, increase the tension with your right hand. Do it slowly and you should feel in difference in tension. If this is the case, your machine should work fine. Good Luck!
