    My Janome Memory Craft 9000 has recently begun having the same problem. It is intermittent. I can turn the machine on, everything looks normal, but when I give the machine power something begins clicking within the machine itself and then the raise pressure foot and needle bar dealy shows up on the screen. I cleaned everything possible, replaced needle, tried using the knee bar instead of the foot pedal, plugged and unplugged, switched outlets, and just about every other thing I could think of. It's beyond me, I'm afraid.

When I turn my Janome mc 9000 the screen says raise presser foot and needle bar and switch it off and back on. I did this several times and it still says same thing.

Almost defiantly a sensor issue. These are not easy machines to work on due to their hi-tech design. Clean and inspect as much of the mechanism as you can as some cotton or fluff may be obstructing a sensor or switch. This may stop the machine from calibrating.
Below is a link to a PDF of janome error diagnosis. It is a bit complicated but one of these steps may solve your issue or offer a solution.

Error message #2

Perhaps this error list will help you resolve the problem:

Try lowering the pressure foot and the needle and then raise them
again and then restart the machine, and if that doesn't clear the
error message then it's time to service the machine.

How do I fix the following problem with my Janome MC9000 sewing machine?

Unfortunately you are probably not going to be able to fix this.
It needs a sensor adjusted (probably), or a component replaced.

Janome 9700 suddenly is showing warning. Raise

Ask the seller! He has a vested interest in helping your machine work! As a former newspaper writer, believe me, if you send something to a local rag, about your problems with your Janome, the seller will sit up, and take Notice!

My sewing machine model no 9000 is showing a error is '' raise the pressure foot and needle bar then power on #01

First, I would make sure the embroidery unit is unplugged if you r trying to sew and check the bobbin winder to make sure it is off. Also look for thread in the guide, these machines are very sensitive and when the slightest bit of thread gets caught in the tension of the threading format, the computer will automatically turn on error message.

Janome 9000 willl not work when turned on

My Janome 9000 has always done that. I can prevent it by raising the needle when I first start the machine, getting it to sew quickly or raising the needle and letting the machine sit for a few minutes. I think my computer wants to warm up a minute. As you can see I.m not a technical person but it works for me.
