Raise feeddogs with switch, then turn handwheel one full revolution to re-engage the gear......unless something is jammed, that should do it. Do you have your manual ?

These machines are known to have this problem. The feed lift cam has a groove worn in it that won't allow the feed dogs to come back up. It is on the lower shaft and needs to be replaced. You can get the feed dogs back up by taking off the needle plate and lifting them up manually while turning the hand wheel. They should stay up until you drop them again.
Some people will not replace the cam and live with it.

SOURCE: Feed Dogs on Janome 1600P
I recently purchased a Janome 1600P-DB and in order to do free motion quilting I had to cover the feed dogs with an index card. I also cut a small section out of the card to allow for the thread and needle to move freely. Standard tape was used.

When you set the switch for the feed dogs to be in the up position, turn the handwheel 1 complete revolution and they should come up.
