Question about Baby Lock Esante
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!

One additional item I found. You will not get the 1-5 alignment screen on the esante Ese if the embroidery unit is attached or in place. First remove the embroidery unit then follow the instructions above. Remember to hold down the START button when pressing the 1-5 in sequence. The square box next to the number should advance as you press the + symbol next to each number.

I have an older Esante model and the solution with holding down the 3 buttons and then turning on the machine does not work. Please advise a different solution.

You should have it serviced and then they will recalabrate the machine.I just had this happened and this worked.
