Question about PfaFF Sewing Machines
Take it to a different technician. If it is irreparable a good tech will tell you. It is most likely the timing belt tension or a loose screw (or two) on the hook. Once set properly and secured it should hold. If you are attempting to sew too thick of a seam it could jar the needlebar out of position as well.

A question to help determine what's happening with your machine(s).
Open the bobbin case so you can see the bobbin area. Begin by trying to turn the handwheel towards you and watch as the needle attempts to go up/down. If you cannot turn the handwheel towards you, turn it slightly backwards then forwards. Does the needle hit the bobbin case as it comes down?
If yes, your machine is out of time and will require a professional technician to repair.
If the above is not the case, there may be thread jammed behind the bobbin case or wrapped around the inner parts of the take-up lever.
Either case - a Pfaff authorized technician would be your best bet for a proper repair.
Best of luck with your machines - it's just awful to not have the at the ready for all our projects!

You are absolutely correct - your machine doesn't come apart much because it is an electronic machine. There really are very few moving parts in modern sewing machines - and the electronics are better left to a technician who's been specifically trained.
It sounds as if your machine is no longer in time (needle rubbing the plate as it goes around if I'm understanding correctly). While not really a "major" repair, unfortunately with computerized/electronic machines, retiming your machine is something better left to an authorized Pfaff technician.
If the needle struck metal as you were stitching/basting, there may also be a rough spot/burr on the hook that your technician will be able to smooth off as well.
Hope this helps get you back up and running soon.

There is a fuse in the the base plate that has blown. It is soldered in and is special fuse you won't find at Radio Shack. Unfortunatly it needs to be fixed by a Pfaff dealer on someone with access to the fuse. If you have the work done, make sure they replace a certain reisitor on the base plate at the same time to prevent this from happening again (per Paff).
Sorry for the bad news and best of luck.
