    I have the same problem. I just tried this solution. The number menu comes up, but nothing happens when I try to select the numbers. Tried it with my finger and also a pointed manicure stick, mine didn't come with a stylus pen. And nothing...
    Is it supposed to beep or move or anything? Scratching my head and hoping to avoid a costly  repair bill..... Cheri

Never mind..I figured it out. Once you get to the number screen, you have to hold down the Start/Stop button while selecting the numbers. I did it 3 times and it worked! Icons are perfect now...Thanks!!!

I was told to do this and it worked for awhile. Finally, I had to have the screen replaced.

Machine is OFF. Push start/reverse/needle buttons all at the same time while turning the machine on. You may need help from someone else. When the screen comes up, select 1 2 3 4 5 in sequence with pen supplied with machine. Do this 3 times. Hope this helps!! Linda

How do i do a screen calibration on a PC-8500 sewing/embroidery machine?


C. POSITION OF TOUCH PANEL

STANDARD

The deviation of the liquid crystal display and touch panel should be within 1 mm when the touch

panel is pressed.

ADJUSTMENT

1. Turn on the power switch while holding down the start/stop button, backtack button, and

NP button simultaneously.

2. While holding down the start button, press the + positions 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 on the screen in

order. If the buzzer sounds once when 5 is pressed, the position is okay. If the buzzer

sounds several times, the position is erroneous; therefore, adjust again. (When pressing

the screen, use a pencil (or match) with a round tip.)

3. Turn on the power again, and confirm that the screen display and touch panel positions
match.

Check that the embroidery arm is slid properly into the machine base. Otherwise, it is probably a problem that needs to be fixed by a service technician.

I have a Brother PC-8200 embroidery sewing machine. Last week I had done some embroidering then changed to straight sewing but couldn't get the tension to adjust. Took it in for repairs, and the...


That's a tough call, parts can be pretty high to fix a machine. Have looked around to price out a new embroidery machine, Janome makes some very nice one in that price range. I'd try ebay there is one which is missing the foot control and hoops for $250.00 just search Brother Pacesetter PC-8200 this may be the ticket you already have the foot control and hoops.

Best of luck
