Question about Sewing Machines
I can hardly read the information on the LCD panel of my Janome MC8000 machine. The light is very dim. Where can I purchase a new light and, because I have good mechanical skills, is it a big deal to install the light?
It's just backlight issue. I just fixed my wife's MC8000 today, very good result, she is very happy now. Very easy and cheap. buy a EL sheet with or without connector wherever you can. dissamble the machine, cut to the size you need, replace it. You can even choose the back light color. after cut the sheet, you may or may not need tape around or laminate another layer for protecting. I bought smallest EL sheet 5"x6", which even enough for 3 machines. Good luck.

Can you get a memory board for Janome 8000

This is an issue of the LCD screen backlight and it will need replacing,....... if you can get one.
In Australia, Janome no longer supply this item, as stocks were depleted some time ago, there is however an asian manufacturer who has been dealing in a re-manufactured version.
First, I would suggest asking Janome HQ in your country whether they still have stocks.
Part No.830617106 - LCD board unit
If they don't, try a Janome Repair shop in your region to see whether they are aware of these "after market" backlights.
As for the actual replacing of the part, there is a great deal of delicate work to be done in removing the front panel and "A" Board to gain access to LCD Board, it would best be done by a service technician with the appropriate Service Manual......but you will need to source the part first of course.
