There is a small dimmer dial just below the display, it is turned up all the way. Sometimes the dial breaks and won't work, a repair shop is needed for this.
Hope that helped.

Hi Peggy,


I know this want be easy for you.  I need any kind of part number you can get off the LCD screen.  Is it a display and you type the different stitch stuff into a keypad?  Or , is the LCD a touch screen that you touch the screen to select a stitch?  I do not have one of these Sewing machines, but I do Electronics repair. Is your Screen Black and not displaying anything?  I believe we can work through this and get you a repair solution. The back light may have gone out on the screen only. Please reply with more info, so that we can get you a solid solution.  By the way, Singer really does not make those anymore.  They are making a more modern Screen at this time. Usually after 5 years, the manufacturers stop making parts for a model. Good news though, we can work on repairing the one you have. Go to Ebay and see if we can buy a XL1000, or other venue to rob the parts from.

Singer Curvy has no screen display, won't sew and emits an extended beep.

no screen display could mean there is something wrong with the computer, also you might try changing the thread and needle

No digital display on the screen and will not sew...was sewing along very nicely, changed thread and now have this problem?

It may be something you can fix if you can find a dealer who will tell you what the code means and how to re-set it. The backward and forward C are not a normal code. Does your book have a section for error codes under "trouble shooting?"

The icons are out of sync.

Have a sewing machine needle handy and turn the machine off.

With your left hand, press and hold /StartStop, Up/Down and reverse while switching on the machine. The screen should display little cross hairs. Using the BLUNT end of the needle NOT THE TIP, press the exact center of the cross hairs. Continue a the cross hairs will change positions on the screen. When finished, switch machine off, wait five seconds and switch back on.
