Question about Brother PC-420

1 Answer

The LCD panel lights up when turned on but nothing will display. I followed the manual's directions to lighten/brighten the display panel but nothing happens. This is a PC420-Project Runway;Limited Edition.

    If it lights up there is nothing wrong with the backlight, the backlight is what you see lighting up. . It may be the LCD screen or a circuit board, it needs to go to a Brother shop for repairs.

Hi,

It seems to be a backlight issue and it would need replacement.You could contact Brother for the backlight. It is tricky to replace backlight ,however you could replace it if you have prior experience repairing these machines. Once you replace the backlight, it would solve the problem.

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.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

How do you know what pattern you select


It will be helpful to you to download the user's manual from the Singer site--it is a free download.

To answer your question--after looking at the manual--it appears that if you look at the pattern selector, it should indicate which pattern is selected.

I haven't used my Elna 8007 embroidery sewing machine for about 2 years. When I turned it on recently, it powers up but the LCD screen is blank. Please help, what can I do?


check your manual - it may have troubleshooting at the back. Also, does the LCD screen have a brightness adjustment that might have been wound down?

Huskystar C20 lights up but doesn't work


sounds like circuit board has gone bad. If you are the original owner and purchased from an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer it may still be under warranty. There is a 1 year warranty from date of purchase. Contact your local authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for service or have them send it to Husqvarna Viking (SVP) Technical Service Department for repair. You can find authorized dealers near you from the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us

Good luck.
