Question about Brother Sewing Machines
I suggest that you stop using it and let it rest. then unplug it multiple times and if that doesn't work, then it's trash.

SOURCE: My touch screen
Yes, I have a solution for this problem. Your screen needs to be recalibrated and you can do it yourself. Don't you wish they would just tell you this stuff instead of charging you an arm and a leg? Here's what to do: Before turning on the machine, press the start/stop button, the reverse button, and the needle position button all at once with one hand (one finger on each button). Hold them down and turn on the machine. What will come up is a recalibration screen. You will see the numbers 1-5 with a little plus sign beside them. Find a small blunt object (I used the tip of a mechanical pencil with the lead in instead of out) and while holding the start/stop button, touch the plus sign beside 1-5 in numerical order. Then, turn the machine off and on again in the normal way. This should recalibrate the screen. Pass it along, people! This is something no one should have to pay for!

If you take the face plate off (left side cover) there is usually a small sensor "lever" that is activated when you raise or lower the presser foot. This could be bad or broken. Many models had plastic then they switched to a metal lever. I think this could be it.

Look for a mechanical switch that engages the lower drive mechanism.

Testimonial: "That was the trick. I knew it had to be something simple but I couldn't figure it out."
While pressing the start/stop, reverse stitch and needle position buttons, turn on the power to display the screen
for the touch panel adjustment mode.
2. While pressing the start/stop button, touch the touch panel at the positions marked by crosses (+) in order from 1 to
(When touching the touch panel, use an object with a rounded tip such as a pencil or matchstick. Never use a
hard or sharp-pointed object.)
If the buzzer sounds once when cross number 5 is touched, the adjustment has been made correctly.
If the buzzer sounds twice when cross number 5 is touched, an error has occurred. In this case, touch the
crosses on the touch panel again in order from 1 to 5.
Never press the thread cutter button during this time. (Doing so may cause a malfunction.)
3. Turn the power off, then on again and check that the screen display and the touch panel positions are aligned

C. POSITION OF TOUCH PANEL
The deviation of the liquid crystal display and touch panel should be within 1 mm when the touch
panel is pressed.
1. Turn on the power switch while holding down the start/stop button, backtack button, and
NP button simultaneously.
2. While holding down the start button, press the + positions 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 on the screen in
order. If the buzzer sounds once when 5 is pressed, the position is okay. If the buzzer
sounds several times, the position is erroneous; therefore, adjust again. (When pressing
the screen, use a pencil (or match) with a round tip.)
3. Turn on the power again, and confirm that the screen display and touch panel positions
