Will the Apple I Pad 7th generation work with the Janome 15000?

Elizabeth, you have convinced me to get the ap!  I am one of the few people in this world that do not have access to decent internet😔.  But fiber is being installed in my development as we speak and they tell me we should be hooked up in March.   So, if I get this Ap for my iPad will I also be able to see it on my phone?

Thanks so much for the info!

Kim

Dear new JANOME  15000 owner,  
The best gift you can give yourself  & your  15000,  is to purchase the  " MY15000"    App   Rated 5 stars, created by Jim Stutsman and Diane Stutsman    It is available at  through the APP STORE ,. for a very fair price ...I can't remember what I paid, but worth every nickle !. 
It is something JANOME should have come up with.    It is organized very carefully & each subject is covered.from regular sewing & the multi- hole plate., to the one hole embroidery plate. 
It is just amazing to put on your iPad & learn a bit each day....Find a good dealer that has classes if you can also  & I hope you enjoy it  & join a quilt guild in your area.

PS    As a word of warning, don't  let this happen ! Even sewing on embroidery Janome machines,  I got my self in trouble by not checking which foot I had once when it started to embroidery! The 15000 always shows you what foot to use...but my very bad  error,  caused a huge  problem with my 15000.. Now, thankful  for a great repairman and  fair price of $270.00 and a 3 weeks in the shop, it is sewing beautifully .....Right Plate, Right Foot , correct  thread, needle, & Janome bobbins  are so important ..

Re: See machine message

Jim Stutsman
 

Every time the machine is turned on it runs a self-test. This message comes up when the test fails, but you have no way of knowing what phase failed or what caused the problem. Usually it has to do with the needle plate sensor no registering a valid state. There is no way you can fix this. It requires sensors to be adjusted. Next time you take it in, before you leave the store switch needle plates. Do this 2 or 3 times and confirm that you don't get the message.

NOTE to all posters: When posting a photo please crop and/or resize so it is not so huge. Giant pictures are annoying, but they also make messages take longer to download, which costs more if you are using your data plan to download. Thanks!

Thank you, I promise to learn this wonderful machine my friend left me. It really is amazing, just like she was!

After three week in shop for this problem it returned the second time I plugged in and turned it on.  Please help.  Thanks

Re: Please see picture below

Just a thought:  there are three ways to raise the presser foot.  Could something with the knee lift be causing this.  Try putting the knee lift in and raising and lowering the presser foot with that, likewise with the foot lever on the back of the machine.  Never know, it's worth a try.

Glad you found it Cheryl! And I’m especially glad you searched for it, that’s why I didn’t say where to change it!
Sometimes it’s preferable to not have a design grouped, sometimes it is, it’s nice to be able to change it.

Everyone encounters this sooner or later. You have the single-hole needle plate installed. Change back to the regular plate and the other stitches will return.

I am unable to get anything but 1 page of utility stitches and 1 page of quilt stitches. This machine is new to me, friend passed and left it to me. I have read the manual and I'm lost! MC15000.  It worked before

Cheryl, when my son played hockey I made skate rags for the kids every year. I used an old hockey player motif from Janome (I think) and put the kids name and number on the towel. Easy to embroider and the kids loved it!

I didn’t realize that we had the choice of loading designs into the software “ungrouped”. I just thought that it was a “new” feature and that we needed to ungroup once we had messed around trying to figure out “why” everything got selected when we only wanted one object. After reading your post, I went looking for the spot in the software that we could make that choice. I found it as today my brain was actually thinking straight and I went to software settings and found the correct tab - that doesn’t always happen when I need to find something.

I’m going to have to brush up on some stuff as my son in law wants me to digitize names for 8 and 9 year old girls that play hockey. We actually have a girls league here, but they still have to play with the boys as there just aren’t enough. It is funny to watch as the girls for the most part just aren’t as aggressive as the little guys seem to be. This is non-contact hockey at this age until about age 10-12 and NEVER in the girls leagues. Now lettering isn’t that difficult but Cory might have some ideas on “what” he wants and I’m not even sure what he wants this embroidery on. I have a sneaking suspicion that it will be very small and something that is already put together and really NOT possible. I suggest that I make little bags or pouches but he says that is too much work - guess he doesn’t understand what taking apart entails, because it has to be put together again. I’d rather do it from scratch - if he knows what he wants or the team wants. There’s about 12-14 kids and maybe 4 coaches or assistants. It could be fun and I’d actually HAVE to do something.

Re: janome 500e error message

Jim Stutsman
 

Since this is a new machine for you, the problem could be due to several things. If the bobbin gets put in backward it will quickly pull out of the bobbin tension and pull up to the top. If you are using a fine bobbin thread you may need to use the yellow dot bobbin case, if you got one with your machine. Your new owner class should clear up a lot of questions and problems, and any machine issues you may have can be handled then as well.

Re: janome 500e error message

Janet Cicerano
 

Hello, I wanted to follow up on my previous question regarding the error message. I found the bobbin had a bunch of loose thread on it. The machine is working again but I have a lot of bobbin thread showing on the right side of the design. Is there an adjustment for this?
I have my new user class this week that came with my machine, cant wait!  I expect this will answer a bunch more questions I have.
Best, 
Janet

I raised the presser foot and turned the hand wheel to raise the needle all the way up.  Turned off the machine and turned it back on.  I makes a noise like it's trying to do something, but then I get the same error message again.  
I had just finished embroidering my very first design when this happened.   
The machine did break the thread 2 times during this design which was 1 color very simple flower.
I Googled this error message and can only find that it may be a Motherboard computer problem and will need servicing.
Thanks for your help,

Re: MBX Question

favymtz
 

Your explanation is exactly correct. The design needs to be grouped all together so that the tool can work properly.
Also note In the Layout tool you have a choice if you want designs to be grouped upon inserting or not.

We've been out of the business now for 8 years (Wow - seems more like 8 months!), and I have slept since we closed. I seem to recall the MBX 4.5 was not a free upgrade to MBX 4.0. Digitizer updates are always cumulative, so you can always install the most recent one for your version without doing the intervening updates. However you may find that trying to install MBX 4.5H gives an error. All is not lost, though, because MBX 4.0V supports the 14000. That would imply that it also supports the 15000, but if it does not you can just use the 14000, as the hoops are the same. Regardless of which version you wind up with, if it complains about not seeing the dongle on Windows 10 you may need the OS Compatibility Update. It's probably already in MBX 4.5H, but maybe not in 4.0V.

Thank you so much! I don't know if that will work with what I'm doing, but if not, I can definitely use the information on some other projects.
