No messages on the screen when it happens? Please describe the issue with more detail.

If it power cycled check your power cord and wall outlet.

Definatly it is an electronic issue. Have the cables checked to be sure there weren't any pinched between the covers etc. And that the plugs on them are seated properly. This they should do naturally. I have also seen this before when what is called the EEPROM chip went bad. Screen lit, no info. The EEPROM is a small chip, black and rectangular on the S-Print board,The EEPROM stores all the information for the machine to work. The screen will light but no info on the screen if its bad. Before replacing a whole circuitboard I would suggest replacing this. It just plugs and unplugs from the S-Print and much less expensive.
If your not feeling all that trustworthy if the tech can do it then ask that it be sent to Bernina in Illinois and repaired. It could take 6 weeks though.

Force the hand wheel in the normal direct of travel to break past that jam. You can't break it. Then run the machine full speed for 20 seconds.

First, check if the machine feed dog knob is turned to the left. Make sure that it is turned to the right (look for the zig-zag and straight stitch symbols) as far as it will go. This knob is on the lower right hand side of the front of the machine. It's near the base and below the stitch length regulator. See page 4 of the manual and look for item 22 in the picture. More about the control knob for the feed dog is on page 10. Next check that the open arm cover is properly seated. This is secured by a screw that is to the right of the needle. See page 50 of the manual. The manual is currently available here: https://media.rainpos.com/4690/bernina_707_717_manual.pdf . I hope this helps. If the feed dog control is set to sew and the cover with the needle plate is aligned properly, then your machine may have a damaged/broken part deeper in the machine. A replacement feed dog is available, https://www.sewingpartsonline.com/bernina-707-sewing-machine-parts.aspx?index=54 . I'm not sure about other parts for this section of the 707. Cindy Wells

Try turning the hand wheel through a full rotation. Do this after you press the button and it returns to the engage feed dogs position. This works on many sewing machines. If the feed dogs remain down, then you may need to have the machine serviced. There is a possibility that a part broke or a linkage is stuck between the button on the hand wheel and the feed dogs. I hope this helps. Cindy Wells
