Call Singer at 1-800-4singer and ask if it an electrical problem, it sounds serious, it is free to call and why take a chance?

    I had hoped for a solution that would not involve taking my machine to a high priced repair person. This is disappointing

    Anybody that would attempt to tell you to take your machine apart would be irresponsible at best, You would be not likely be able to fix it. I still think that your best bet is to call Singer customer service, it is free and they do know their product. I own 4 large bike stores in NY, we sell 5000 bikes a year, and can tell you more damage is done by someone trying to fix their own bike or worse yet their buddy who does not have a clue what they are doing than accidents. Believe me it is cheaper to have the expert, in the long run. I would not trust advise on the internet, exclusively. Sorry, a freebie is only good if it causes no harm and works.

The screen on my XL5000 has gone blank. I have tried to restart machine but is still blank.

it might just be a manual adjustment, most electronic machines have a dial close to the screen. normally above. Else you have a damaged screen or loose connection.

I have a CE-250 and I was having problems getting this message. After doing some research, I discovered that it was the thread sensor not sensing the thread. Try rethreading it or cleaning out your sensor area. It works for me when I get this message
