Sounds like a computer board has gone bad (there are a few of them in the 7570). Unfortunately this isn't a part you'll be able to get directly.

There used to be a dealer in San Juan (I believe they are still there). I think they carried multiple machine lines but do know they carried Pfaff. Even if they are no longer Pfaff dealers, they should be able to determine what the problem is and likely fix for you.

Following is the information we have on file for them - hopefully this is all still current & you're not terribly far from their location. If this info is not current or they are no longer there, please let us know - we might be able to come up with someone who can get us further info.

How can I substitute one knitting yarn for another?


don't know the type of wool you are speaking of, bu you need to identify what yarn type it is, ie double knit, 3 ply, chunky, etc.... and then you can just purchase wool that has the same ply and it should knit up the same as the Rico -just checked Rico its a super chunky its thicker than chunky which is 12-16 ply, so very thick. Ask for a wool that knits up on number 10 needles and is close to roving

Screen dull on Janome mc 8000


There is an LCD Backlight Panel that illuminates the screen, and yes, they do fail.
Before you start, just check the screen contrast dial inside the top cover, front right, they can be easily knocked and this will also cause the screen to go light or dark.
Janome no longer supplies the LCD Backlight, however, we have an after market replacement at our store, and also provide fitting instructions and a good deal more besides.
If you care to contact me I can send a Diagnostic Routine and the Screen Reset instructions for you to check if there is anything else causing troubles.
Please remember to give details of your dilemma as we do receive a lot of requests.

Having problem downloading patterns from disc to memory card have spent hours trying


Judy, you mention memory card so I am assuming you are refering to a Compact Flash card that you insert into a PCMCIA adaptor.
The card must be smaller than 512 MB, any larger and the machine won't acknowledge it. You need a type 1 card and compact flash card adaptor, a compact card reader/writer unless you have an integral multi card reader integrated into your computer. The card format must be FAT, the older computer file format. Insert the card into the adaptor and insert into your machine, wait for the warning screen to clear, if the machine asks "format card" hit yes on the machines display screen . If there is no offer to format the card use the SET icon on the display screen, you need embroidery mode, then arrow forward till you reach the Format options, select ATA card, hit yes, it will warn you card contents will be erased, hit OK. Just say yes to any new questions. Wait for the warning screen to dissapear, when it does you can eject the card adaptor, now insert the card alone into your digital media card reader which should be inserted via a USB connection to your computer, locate the drive your computer has allocated to the card and open it. You will see two types of folders, ORD which are for combined decorative stitches you might want to save, those you put together in the machine, and EMB folders, those are where the machine expects to find designs,11 of each.
Only use them to transfer designs between the machine and computer or vice versa, don't use them to store all your designs in, you will over tax your machines on board processor.
To pop designs into them, open your design CD, select the design you want to stitch, copy it, now open the card in your computer, open the first folder, number 5, I think, and Paste into that folder. Use only JEF formats, your machine wont read any other format.
Don't transfer designs into the machines built in folders, you will severely constrict the machines memory to the point where it wont be able to access enough memory to stitch your designs. Use the compact card as an external drive, which it is anyway, the machine will still stitch the design as if it were in its own memory. To access the card in the machine, select embroidery mode, then the card icon and finally if needed the file icon.
Hope this helps you

Singer model ce100 does not sew with pedal


Check your feed dogs. On the front, left at the bottom is a manaul switch. If you push it to the right it drops the feed dogs, for embroidery and when you push it left it lift the feed dogs. Just remember to turn the handwheel towards you after switching it to the left, until you hear a clicking sound and the feed dogs engage. Hope this solves your problem.

Hi Chris,

This post has ended up on a sewing machine forum for the Janome Memorycraft 9000, so I think you will be best served to start afresh with a new posting in the computer geek area, sewing machines, no problem, vintage computers,. .............well, largely, sorry.

Anyway, 13 years is a great result for a computer, go take a test drive of a newer model and see what you are missing out on.....one thing tho', if you can, stick to Wndows XP not the newer Vista that seems to be the perceived wisdom.........hey, now you are on the web, you can do some of your own background research on all kinds of things for almost nothing !!

Resetting the code


The 7550 has a battery backup (little door on bottom of machine - 2 AA batteries). Remove batteries for a couple of days and the code should disappear. Removing the batteries WILL NOT effect the main memory of the machine - they are just for the backup of any personally designed stitches and memory combinations - not the hard memory of the machine. Periodically these batteries will need to be changed - a message will pop up on the screen to let you know.

Hope this helps (ex-Pfaff employee - GREAT MACHINE!)
