Under the cover of your machine where the feet are stored, on the right side,front of your machine is a round button which controls the brightness of your display. It was probably moved during cleaning.

My screen has gone dark and no lights up. What can I do?

Does it have a variable light knob somewhere that has been knocked turning the display down? I know my 6500 has one.

Sewing machine LCD display not lighting up

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.

LED screen won't light up on New home 8000

First, open the lid where the feet are stored, look on the right side front of the backside of the panel for a round knob. This is the brightness control. Turn it gor more or less brightness. If this doesn't solve the problem, you have a bad screen which must be rebuilt by Janome . Take the machine to a Janome dealer (they are the only one's Janome will deal with) who wilremove the panel, send it to Janome for a rebuild and reinstall it for you. You may as well have the machine serviced while this is being done as everything is already exposed for proper cleaning and lubrication. Be aware , this may cost as much as $400 but the machine is worth it.
