Does the presser foot move at all when the machine is first turned on?
Do the needle and feed teeth calibrate when the machine is first turned on?
You probably need to locate your nearest authorized repair center.

yes, pressure foot lever should stay raised, this sounds like the spring has broken in your machine. if you are comfortable with delving into the machine you could open it up and take a look. alternatively take it to a sewing repair man and get it serviced as well as clean and lube.

I fixed myself. When you take off the front left cover to expose inner workings o0f pressure foot lever, move the pressure foot lever see, the small metal plate move, when looking from back of machine see a small post upper left rear with what kooks to be a spring, lightly touch causing to spring back to the left and you will hear a snap. This is realigning pressure foot and your embroidery unit will register and you will have a normal lcd screen.This helped me, hope helps you.

SOURCE: When I turn my machine on it makes a long rattling sound in the bobbin case area, then when the screen comes on it says to raise the presser foot up and turn power on again. The presser foot is always
How old is the machine ? Sometimes, the 'socket' [ for lack of a better word ], where you fit the bobbin case into the machine, can become worn with use. So the bobbin may be set a bit too low, compared to where it was when new. May cause noise, may cause failure to catch the bobbin thread by the needle.
Sometimes this can be remedied by use of something underneath to shim it up to the right height. But I must say, I haven't ever tried this fix in anything other than a fully mechanical machine.. that is, one that does not have any computer functions. I don't know how it might affect any sensors in the area.
Short of that, might just need to find a sewing machine repair shop.
Often it's just because of a buildup of lint, but you know about that, so that is unlikely to be the reason for this.

Testimonial: "My machine is the Janome 11000Se and I have it 6 yrs. The first four years I could hardly embroidery at with the constant thread breaking and thread shredding. It was finally discovered I had the wrong "P" foot (embroidery foot). The one I had came with the attachments with the machine but it wasn't even for my machine. The repair person that has worked on my machine is good and has adjusted the sensor for the latest problem but It seems to go back not being able to sew very long. I had the understanding that the newer machines are not supposed to be oiled and if you do oil them it could cause more noise. My machine also makes an ugly clacking soun when the embroidery arm goes into position. So much has gone wrong that I'm convinced I have a lemon. I just thought that someone might have new insight into this problem. Thank you"
