Someone gave me a Janome Sewing Machine. When I turn on the machine the LED display reads SP and none of the buttons do anything. What does SP mean and what do I do to fix this problem? Please Help! Thanks!

SP means Spool Pin. It is currently in position to wind a bobbin. Move the bobbin winder pin to the left and SP should disappear.

How do I use the thread cutter?


Most of the time, you will sew a seam and then do a few stitches after pressing the Reverse button. Leave the presser foot down and press the button with the scissor icon. (That's the top-most button in the row that curves up from the needle area.) The LED will blink. If the thread cutter LED blinks when you turn on the sewing machine, press the button again. The machine will remember if the thread cutter was in use when the power went off. For some thick threads, the auto-thread cutter will not work. Instead you'll need to lift the presser foot and bring the item up to the thread cutter on the side of the sewing machine. It's towards the back of the side of the sewing machine near the needle.

You can even program in the thread cutter in memorized sewing pattern by selecting pattern 48 and pressing the M button after all the other stitches for the pattern are added to the program.

Do remember to clean the thread cutter regularly. Lint or thread buildup will interfere with the mechanism. The cleaning steps are on page 61 of the manual.

Janome has the instruction book for the Memory Craft 6300P on the product page: http://janome.com/en/machines/sewing/6300p/ . The direct link to the manual is http://janome.com/siteassets/support/manuals/professional-series/inst-book-6300peng-fr-sp.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Sp error janome 8048


This is usually meant that the bobbin winder is in engaged. This happens on my 8080, so it should also work for the 8048. Not mentioned in the manual. Found it by someone posting on the internet.

Janome Harmony 8080 showing SP in the display and I can't find my manual. I know I've had this issue before and the manual had the solution but I without the manual, I can't seem to fix it


SP means the bobbin winder is engaged. Move the spooler (where you put the bobbin when you wind it) to the left and your display will go back to normal.

The sewing advisor screen on a Janome 8000 is getting dim.


When your Memory Craft 8000 or MC 5700 is otherwise working fine but the LCD display screen begins to grow darker and you find you just can't read it, the only thing you can do is replace the LCD screen, or buy a new machine.
Janome no longer stock this item direct, but there is an affordable replacement available.


Full Access and Installation instructions are provided, so you can DIY or have someone else do the replacement for you.


Check this Link


Also includes advice, links & contacts to be able to Reset your screen and do a Self Diagnosis Routine to test your machine BEFORE you purchase a replacement LCD backlight for either the Janome MC 8000 or MC 5700, so you can check that there are no other troubles.

Problems with the memory card


HI Have you contacted either the dealer you bought the machine from or Janome directly? There is a Janome group on the internet at Yahoogroups...maybe someone there would have the answer? I've been told that the owner of Janome monitors the group--that is WOW for an international company to pay attention to the customers! Good luck,pat

SP in display window, no options?


SP means that the bobbin winder has been pushed to the right in preparation for winding the bobbin. Just click the winding post to the left till it clicks, and the stitch number will be displayed.
