Question about Janome 8080 Computerized Sewing Machine
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.
