Question about Janome Sewing Machines
Likely you will find it has an elastomeric connector between the LCD and its circuit board that has failed. If you have experience with this type of connector it can be replaced IF a suitable connector can be found. So not likely a DIY repair.

The erreor message relates to the motor sensing that it is working unusually hard.........the extra strain will have a physical cause, generally in the hook and bobbin region.......something blocking or slowing things down, so.......
Remove needleplate and bobbin case.
You will probably find an accumulation of lint in and around this area, also possibly in the feeddog channels.
Use a small brush and vacuum with crevice tool to remove the lint and wipe the hookrace with a tissue moistened with methylated (denatured) spirit to remove any dirt deposits.
Also check that the bobbin case is not damaged on the top surface by needle strikes or on the underside rim by the hook gouging as it spins.
If damage is present but mild, you can use very fine emery paper to smooth surface, if more severe, replace the bobbin case. Don't forget to change needles regularly too.
Best of ......

Just today i got out my little janome i bought years ago and it is this model. There was no "manual" with the machine. All that came with it is a large 20X14 two sided print out. I can scan and send this to you with an email address.

The LCD Backlight is prone to going dark eventually and fails 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.
