My wife's janome 9000 has this message when turned on "Raise pressure foot and needle bar,and then turn back on" she does this the machine will not work and continues to give her this message. She says she has checked the knee lift. It is an intermitten problem she took in for service and they could find nothing wrong. Thank You for any help
My Janome 9000 has always done that. I can prevent it by raising the needle when I first start the machine, getting it to sew quickly or raising the needle and letting the machine sit for a few minutes. I think my computer wants to warm up a minute. As you can see I.m not a technical person but it works for me.

Almost defiantly a sensor issue. These are not easy machines to work on due to their hi-tech design. Clean and inspect as much of the mechanism as you can as some cotton or fluff may be obstructing a sensor or switch. This may stop the machine from calibrating.
Below is a link to a PDF of janome error diagnosis. It is a bit complicated but one of these steps may solve your issue or offer a solution.
Ask the seller! He has a vested interest in helping your machine work! As a former newspaper writer, believe me, if you send something to a local rag, about your problems with your Janome, the seller will sit up, and take Notice!
First, I would make sure the embroidery unit is unplugged if you r trying to sew and check the bobbin winder to make sure it is off. Also look for thread in the guide, these machines are very sensitive and when the slightest bit of thread gets caught in the tension of the threading format, the computer will automatically turn on error message.
Sew to the end of the fabric, slowing right down to within a stitch or two of the end, manually turn wheel to complete last two stitches, stop, raise needle, raise presser foot, turn fabric so the back edge of the fabric is just under the needle, drop needle, drop presser foot and resume.
check youre screen you will see an icon of needle you have got it in the down mode touch it it will raise it next time you sew it will be raised this is an option to have needle in fabric or raised on completion of sewing this is in your manual.
hope this helps mary h
