Do you have any sewing machine repair shops in your area? It may be worthwhile to have them take a second look. Unfortunately, a lot of dealers make a practice of telling you the repair is expensive, it cannot be repaired, and you should just buy a new machine.

I had this problem, but ignored it, go through the advised listing on the machine's screen, under 'pressure foot lifter' and see if anything can be adjusted.

A good clean is always useful, Remove needle, and the side cover over the lamp if you can. Remove the feed dog cover plate. Use an air blaster can to remove fluff, then I personally spray everything with WD40 to remove gunge. If you are able, use a length of cotton tape wetted with WD40 to remove gunge from the tension plates. Wipe off any surplus WD40. Then oil the hook and bobbin race with good quality sewing machine oil, do not use any other oil.

Check with your machine's dealer. You probably need a dongle rather than a USB cable.

Internal Error would seem to indicate a computer issue. Should probably take it for service.

there should be an LCD brightness dial on the machine, make sure it hasn't moved. Otherwise a replacement LCD probably costs more than the machine is worth.

Make sure the bobbin has thread. The manual should provide information in the troubleshooting section.
