I had not used my machine for some time now. Now the machine stays in "bobbin winding selected" mode. When I run the machine with with switch moved to "Bobbin" image side it works propertly only bobbin spins. If I move switch to the needle image side both bobbin and needle moves. On display it contines to say "Bobbin winding selected"!! The previous setting was for zig-zag!! I am stuck with this setting. Please help

Re: Cannot come out of "Bobbin Winding selected" mode
If this were a Janome, it would indicate that a sensor for the bobbin winder needs adjusting, so the safest way forward is to seek the advice of your local Brother dealer, or contact Brother in your home country for details of nearest agent.
Sorry to say,........sometimes these things really do need to be seen to by trained technicians with access to diagnostic equipment and workshop manuals, they cannot be done via email, and if you just open the machine and play around it will end up at a workshop anyway.
Apologies to be the bearer of such news....every day I give thanks that I am not a veterinarian.

Use a new different bobbin...plastic bobbins are notorious for melting and then don't work. Also, take your time winding the bobbin...a nice even wind will center the bobbin. Speed demons cause the bobbin to be unevenly wound and off center. Good luck!
Verify that you are threading it properly for bobbin winding. Perhaps the bobbin winder height needs to be adjusted. If you continue to have problems (which I frequently have with some of my machines), I simply use a pencil or a skewer to raise the thread as it is winding on the bobbin.
I had the same problem and fixed it myself. Remove the portion of the housing that coincides with the bobbin winder. You will need to remove two screws to do this--one is just to the upper left of the bobbin winder itself, and one is hidden under the handle on the left side of the machine (lift the handle, and look on the machine on the left side.) It takes some coaxing to remove the housing, but it can be done--be gentle. If you need to, remove the housing on the left side of the machine that covers the needle assembly. This will make it a bit easier, but still, be gentle.) After removing the housing, you will see a black metal piece with a elongated slot and a screw adjacent to the bobbin winder mechanism. Unscrew the screw a turn or two, and slide the piece to the other side. Tighten gently. Turn your machine on, and move your bobbin winder back and forth and watch the screen change from bobbin winding to the main straight stitch screen. Now, do a brief Dance of Joy. I hope this helps.
