Janome memory craft 8000

The visual screen is difficult to see. I tried adjusting the screen contrast, but it is still difficult to see. Is there an easy solution?

    I had the same problem with my Memory Craft 8000 and my sewing machine shop had to send the screen to Janome in New York for repair. There are no parts to replace this anymore. The total cost including labor was $400.00.

    The LCD screen on my Memorycraft 8000 is 'growing' inwards, with a black border now which prevents me from choosing some of the options, as I can't read the choices.

    My screen is so dark I can't read it, I can look at the guide and estimate where the correct stitch is and press there and it works so I know there is nothing wrong with the motherboard.

    My 15 year old Janome Memory Craft 8000 is slowly 'growing' a black display screen. Can someone suggest where I can have it repaired in Australia?
    Ideally east coast - I live in Canberra, but can easily get it to Sydney or Melbourne.

    My Memory Craft 8000 LCD screen is very light. Is there a way to adjust the setting. Also I'm trying to locate a user manual.

    Any info will be greatly appreciated!

We have about 30 electroluminescent backlights for the 8000 still available .These are not original Janome parts. You will need a Janome service person to install then for you as it requires taking apart alot of the machine to get to the display. We can provide instructions if this person is unsure how to fit. Once the display is out, the process is simple. They are AUD$60 each including shipping. Email at [email protected]

The Backlight is prone to going dark eventually and failing progressively, but you can buy a replacement and even instal it yourself.....
We can now supply the LCD Backlight Screen for the Janome Memory Craft MC 8000 and Memory Craft MC 5700. 
Keep your old Janome, save money and reduce unnecessary landfill.
It also comes with comprehensive installation instructions from the Original Janome Service Manual which are sent in advance so you can look at the "How to do it" before you decide whether you wish to DIY or enlist the services of a trusted friend or take the LCD Screen and installation instructions to your friendly local technician and have them do it for you.
Here is the LCD Backlight Link

    If anyone knows of a spare screen I wold be thrilled to know. the letter I received from Janome Australia said the parts are not longer made and they can not assist.

    The upshot is after 10 years i have no sewing maching.

  • Please go tohttp://www.sewingmachine.com.au/index.as... . We sell many discontinued parts no matter how old the machine is.

Screen dull on Janome mc 8000


There is an LCD Backlight Panel that illuminates the screen, and yes, they do fail.
Before you start, just check the screen contrast dial inside the top cover, front right, they can be easily knocked and this will also cause the screen to go light or dark.
Janome no longer supplies the LCD Backlight, however, we have an after market replacement at our store, and also provide fitting instructions and a good deal more besides.
If you care to contact me I can send a Diagnostic Routine and the Screen Reset instructions for you to check if there is anything else causing troubles.
Please remember to give details of your dilemma as we do receive a lot of requests.

I want to sell my 1991 New Home memory Craft 8000 sewing machine


A good place to see what machines are selling for is Ebay. That's where I sold a sewing machine and an embroidery machine.

It helps to know your product and machine embroidery lingo.

What are cassettes? Floppy disks? These make the machine borderline obsolete.

Memory cards are still around, but most EM now have USB connectivity or USB flash drives.

Satin thread? Embroidery machines use Rayon or Polyester embroidery thread.

Having had the machine recently serviced is also a plus.

Need touchscreen backlight for merory craft 8000 janome new home


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.
