If you cannot play, rewind or fast forward, but you hear a light "click" coming from the cassette compartment, then more than likely you have a broken drive belt, or the circuit controlling the play and/or rewind/ff mechanisms are out. In either case it sounds like you need to send it in or take it somewhere for repair.

How can i stop my singer brilliance 6180 sewing machine from running... once i start sewing by stepping on the foot control.. even when i take my foot off.. it stills continues to sew and i have no idea...

you may find that the footpedal is faulty however there is a place on your footpedal where you can adjust the speed.. or sensitivity it takes a small screwdriver, have alook at your pedal is there a tiny screw or little hole maybe a plus or minus sign on it

I have an old elna super that I love. It recently started sewing on it's own without my pressing the foot pedal. Is the motor going or is it a cord/footpedal problem?

It is almost a given that it is a foot control problem. The original foot control and its parts are not available, but generic foot controls will work. Don't allow the machine to sit humming on low, it will damage the motor.

I have installed Oympus DSS player for transcription purposes.

Check whether your foot pedal is a RS-26 or RS-28, and the DSS Player version. For some strange reason the DSS v5 is not backward compatible with the RS-26 foot pedals, and so you would need to purchase a RS-28.
I hope this hepls!

Janome Harmony footpedal doesn't respond when pressed.

It sounds like you have a wire off inside the footpedal. If it won't work when you press it but, it will start on it's own, the wire is bouncing around inside the foot pedal box. It should either clip onto or be held in place by a screw. Other than this, it could be a broken wire, most likely where the wire comes out of the foot pedal, but this probably isn't the problem or, you need to call Ghost Busters.
