SP means Spool Pin. It is currently in position to wind a bobbin. Move the bobbin winder pin to the left and SP should disappear.

Be sure to use a brand new needle.

Remove the thread from the machine. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread the upper thread. This allows the tension disk to release so the thread will seat properly. Verify that the thread path is correct.

Check that the bobbin is installed correctly (turning the proper direction in the bobbin case) and the bobbin case tension is threaded correctly.

Set the upper tension to the midway point. (This is the beginning point and may need tweaking later.)

Pull the bobbin thread to the top of the sewing project.
How and Why to Bring up the Bobbin Thread P.S.--this works with regular sewing, not just for quilting.

Lower the presser foot and test your machine. Begin sewing slowly.

If there are still issues--upper thread looping, try tightening but if it doesn't improve, the tension mechanism may not be working properly. Check and remove any thread pieces or gunk stuck in the tension mechanism. If still not working, it probably needs service.

If the bobbin thread is still not connecting with the upper thread, the sewing machine's timing is most likely off. (Search the internet for "sewing machine timing." There are multiple web sites and videos available that discuss this OR take it for service.)

Your screen has gone bad... time to replace it. (or get a new machine :-) )

The part is an LCD screen that needs to be rebuilt by the Janome Company. You will need to take the machine to a Janome dealer for this repair because Janome only sells to it's Dealers.. Plan on spending more than $300.

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.

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.

leather needles, they make little cuts in the leather as opposed to normal needles that try to punch wholes, which does not with such dense material as leather.

Do you have a manual? Most Janomes have a sealed oil system meaning you don't ever oil anything besides the little wick under the bobbin case, just one drop now and then.

flat side goes to the back of the machine,, and the needle that has a groove in it,, has to have that groove match the notch in the needle holder..

I have found this happens when I need to replace the needle. It might be slightly bent, or the tip broken. Needles are cheap, so when in doubt replace the needle!

Janome 8080... | Answered on May 07, 2014


If the power inlet on the actual machine is broken, you will need to find a local Janome dealer and see if the part is still available to order, or any sewing repair shop that deals in servicing all brands may have an old one from a deceased machine that will suit you.

I am not familiar with this model in Australia, it may have come out with a different code reference here.

Phone around locally is my suggestion, we here come from all around the world.......beyond the oceans of where any of us call home !!
