    AF means that the scanner flatcable isnt connected. Check connection to pcb. Flatcable must be in good position (simply stick it onto the pcb).

Start/Pause light flashing but machine won't start

Unplug machine and wait a few minutes and replug it in again! This usually resets the computer on the washer but be prepared if it happens on a regular basis you may need to call a qualified repairman that can troubleshoot the problem!

Overload message on my janome 8000

I know you said you have performed the reset sequence, but try these steps and see if the unit goes through the diagnostics correctly.

  • Turn off your Janome MC8000. Wait for a few seconds.

  • Press and hold the "Start," "Reverse" and "Auto lock" buttons at the same time.

  • Release the three buttons once your Janome MC8000 turns on.

  • Locate the plus (+) sign on the machine screen. Press the plus sign when prompted. Wait till you receive a message that says "Test Complete."

  • Turn off the Janome MC8000. Wait for a few seconds.

  • Turn on the Janome MC8000 once again. This will prompt the embroidery machine to conduct a diagnosis. Wait till it finishes the diagnosis and troubleshoots the errors you were encountering before.

Unplug the device, wait for 30 seconds, and plug it back in to see if it resets the device. Make sure you wait the full 30 seconds.

The led screen shows genera error

you need to reset your printer try doing this
  • Press and hold “Stop”, “Maintenance”, and “Power” buttons for about 10 seconds. A message will come on the screen saying counter is reset and to turn the printer off. The R200 and others don’t have a screen so just wait until the 10 seconds is up.
  • Turn the printer off, unplug the power cord. Wait about 1 minute and power the printer back up. The counter will be reset. That’s all there is to the reset procedure.
