Question about Sewing Machines
So I was sewing with my Brother PR-600 embroidery machine and it locked up in the middle of a project. The touchscreen was completely unresponsive. I shut off the machine for a few minutes and turned it back on. The screen shows normal start up screens and looks like its gonna work just fine, but when I touch the screen nothing happens. I have pressed all over the screen and I get no response whatsoever from the machine. I have tried turning on and off multiple times, I even left it off over night and still nothing. Any ideas on how to fix this? Thanks
See if you can discover how to reset the machine. Typically it is a combination of buttons pressed either simultaneously or in order as the machine is starting.

SOURCE: touch screen not responsive
You need to re-align the touch screen using the following routine:
Accessing Alignment Mode:
Then you will see a text message something like
"Press + to align"
Don't touch the "+" in the text message !!!!!
The one you want will be elsewhere on the screen and all on it's own, with no text around it.
Using the non pointed end of a needle, or the spare spool pin (nothing sharp) gently but as accurately as you can, touch the centre of the +
The + will move to several more locations as it organises the height, width and orientation you give by touching the centre of the + as it appears each time.
When it is finished, turn machine off, then on as normal.
If this does not correct the issue, it may well be something else, so please, if you want any more help with this, just post back here, or, drop a line through the "Contact Us" page at www.bargainbox.com.au

I took the case off, and was able to raise the lever, and am NOT getting the error msg anymore. However, now machine is out of time (I think) I want to fix it myself...can I?

That's a tough call, parts can be pretty high to fix a machine. Have looked around to price out a new embroidery machine, Janome makes some very nice one in that price range. I'd try ebay there is one which is missing the foot control and hoops for $250.00 just search Brother Pacesetter PC-8200 this may be the ticket you already have the foot control and hoops.
Best of luck

This isn't a software issue: the embroidery mechanism has failed due to normal age related wear, it's no longer detected by the machine and this is why you now only get the sewing screen.
The only way to fix that is to replace the entire embroidery mechanism and for that the unit must be completely dismantled . Since this would cost more than the the price of a new machine it's simply not worth it to have it repaired. Use it as is or get a new one.

I had the same problem and it was my power supply. I've had more than my share of problems with this machine and it's only 3.5 years old. Good luck.
