Janome Machine Stuck in Bobbin Winding Mode

I have a Janome Memory craft 3500 and it's computerized. On the screen it says "Bobbin Winding" and no matter what buttons I press or if I turn it on or off it won't let me do the actual sewing because it's on bobbin winding mode.


Someone please help! Thank you :)

If it is computerized, you may have a bad chip or sensor. You will probably need to take it in to be repaired

I was able to get rid of the "Bobbin Winding" message on my Memory Craft 8000 today. The message was displayed after I got my machine back from the technician who replaced my backlit display. It was the bobbin winding SENSOR and needed to be adjusted. I took the side off where the flywheel is and the top off the machine (just a two screws) and moved the bobbin winder back and forth to see what was happening with that sensor. Then I used a screwdriver to bend that sensor a bit. Then a bit more. Trial and error. Plugged it in, tried it again. Good to go now!
