Janome 8000 on but witout functioning

I was given a Janome 8000 four years ago for Christmas. When I turn it on the LCD panel comes on but can not touch any functions to make them work. It will straight stitch but unable to change settings on it. Called dealer where it was purchased, told unable to get parts for this model anymore. Any ideas on what the problem is and if there is any place I can get parts for it.

Turn on the power switch while you are pressing the start/stop key,reverse key and auto-lock key.The LCD screen indicates(Press + Mark) You should see a ( + ) on the screen.
Press the center of the plus mark with a non-sharp object. The mark moves and the machine beeps.Do this until the screen says Adjustment END.
Turn off the power switch. Wait 10-15 seconds and turn on the power switch and see if you can select stitches.

If this doesn't solve your problem and you can see the patterns on the screen you have another problem which will probably involve a visit to a technician either Janome or Elna trained(Model CE20)

If you can't see any patterns or they are faint then the LCD board needs to be rebuilt and an authorized Janome Dealer can remove the board,send it to Janome for a rebuild and reinstall it for you.Plan on spending more than $300 for this. If the machine works well, it is well worth if as it is a very nice machine.

Screen dull on Janome mc 8000


There is an LCD Backlight Panel that illuminates the screen, and yes, they do fail.
Before you start, just check the screen contrast dial inside the top cover, front right, they can be easily knocked and this will also cause the screen to go light or dark.
Janome no longer supplies the LCD Backlight, however, we have an after market replacement at our store, and also provide fitting instructions and a good deal more besides.
If you care to contact me I can send a Diagnostic Routine and the Screen Reset instructions for you to check if there is anything else causing troubles.
Please remember to give details of your dilemma as we do receive a lot of requests.

Janome MC 8000, LCD panel backlight


It's just backlight issue. I just fixed my wife's MC8000 today, very good result, she is very happy now. Very easy and cheap. buy a EL sheet with or without connector wherever you can. dissamble the machine, cut to the size you need, replace it. You can even choose the back light color. after cut the sheet, you may or may not need tape around or laminate another layer for protecting. I bought smallest EL sheet 5"x6", which even enough for 3 machines. Good luck.
