If you have an ios device try rebooting: press the on/off-button and the home-button simultaneously for ten seconds and turn it on after.
If you have an android device try to remove the battery and place it back in. If that doesn't work you could also press the on/off button and the volume-down-button at the same time to reboot (some devices will get into recovery mode in wich you can navigate without touchscreen).

How do I Lower the pressure foot for sewing after changing from embroidery on my brother pc- 8500?


Would a manual help?

Brother PC 8500 User Manual

Are the feed dogs in the raised position? Is it a regular stitch presser foot or a darning foot? A darning foot is shorter in height so the fabric can be maneuvered without use of the feed dogs. Just some ideas. Could also be an embroidery setting that has not been deactivated.

How do i do a screen calibration on a PC-8500 sewing/embroidery machine?


C. POSITION OF TOUCH PANEL

STANDARD

The deviation of the liquid crystal display and touch panel should be within 1 mm when the touch

panel is pressed.

ADJUSTMENT

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
match.

Position of Touch Panel.


It's been awhile, but I think you go into the test mode then hit one of the hard keys (start, threader, reverse). I know there is a backdoor for this.
On newer Brothers you touch the screen and hold while powering on, but I'm not sure yours does it that way.

The feeder dose not feed


there is a switch on the back of most machines behind the feed dogs that allow you to drop the feet for embroidery, you have to switch it back to raise the feed dogs back up

I have a pc-8500 and the top thread breaks constantly. I have taken the side off...and see no thread tangled inside...as well as haven taken off the bobbin plate to make sure there is no thread tangled...


OK. I was just being kind of an idiot. I replaced the bobbin spool with one that came with it and it's working fine now. Apparently this machine is very picky about the type of bobbin you use.
