Re: changing needle plate problem

Jim Stutsman
 

Diane has just reminded me that this problem has been solved. (Between the two of us we remember almost half as much!) If you are in embroidery mode and you change the plate it will give you a permanent warning that you can't close. You have to first change to sewing mode, then remove the plate. I won't go so far as to call this a bug, just a bad design decision.

I think I would have 'explained' that I was gettting rid of the one that crashed continuously, and was going to upgrade the one that had the one activation on it with a new one. I thought now there were 3 activations allowed (but may be confusing it with Hatch), but not sure, plus also the deactivation program is available, but not sure how long that takes to run on a computer that keeps crashing.

I currently only have it on one computer - plus Hatch 2 (MBX 4 is on my old laptop, but of course that won't run because the dongle is dead).  I am thinking about installing MBX 5 on the desktop just in case my laptop dies before I have time to move it.

The needle plate sensor may need adjustment. Try taking the plate off and putting it back on again. While it’s off check for lint in the back area where the switch is. When you put it back, press down on the circle so it seats correctly. If all else fails it’s dealer time.

HI,
     I have the 15000 and after changing the needle plate from straight stitch the warning sign won't go out. I can't use anything unless I change the plate back to straight, Any idea what could be wrong?               Thanks, Joyce

It will be interesting to see if Janome agrees to release the activation. I have MBX on two computers one of which crashes after about 3 minutes. A couple of years ago I requested Janome to release the activation from the computer that keeps crashing and after a great deal of exchanges between myself, Janome UK and Janome Japan their conclusion was that I still have one activation left so why did I need to have the other freed up!! They would not budge in their decision so I just had to accept it as I felt like I was beating my head off the wall. It will be interesting to see if they have changed their attitude now.

Do you still have a way to offer a machine for sale?
I have a Janome 11000 I would love to sell.

Thanks

Contact Janome support by email asking for help and guidance
You will basically install on new computer with 2nd activation
You may be able to get them to release the first activation with proof of computer crashing !!

Acufil Hooping

JaneMahaffey@...
 


If you bring in an outside quilt design into acufil will it still calculate hoopings?  Or can you only calculate hoopings with the built in stippling design?
Would appreciate any help.  Thank You

There is a tool that will let you transfer your license to a new computer. However the old computer must still be working to use it, so you have no option there. MBX V5 allows two installations, so if you have not used both of them you can just install it on the new computer. If you have already done two installations then you will need to contact Janome support for assistance. Once you have installed from your original DVD you should download and install all the updates for MBX. While MBX V5 updates itself, the initial release had problems with that and may not run at all until you update.

i know this has been asked before, however I can not find the response. I have a new computer,  I need to reinstall on the new one. How do I go about doing this without losing an activation. The old computers crashed and will not even come on. Thank you.

Hi June,
I have an update to the Skyline S9. I just tried the HP plate on the Skyline to see if it would sense the correct plate and it did! So I was told only the newer version Skyline allows the HP setup but I figure it was worth a try and it works! So hope this may help you too if you find a great deal on “last year’s” model.

Happy sewing!

Thanks,
Marsha

June,
I have a similar setup (got a great deal onmy machine at a Black Friday sale after Thanksgiving last year). I recently took my S9 for a sewing project class and it worked great. I did invest in the extra foot/accessories box like came with the 15000 so I could easily carry all the extras.

Like Cheryl mentioned, there are a few on-screen controls that are just slightly different between the 15000 and S9. But it was not too frustrating.

To be honest, I think aging effect is not the only factor associated with factor with taking the 15000 somewhere...the thing is just a massive, heavy, well built machine and weighs accordingly

Regards,
Pixey

Cheryl:

Thank you so much for the wealth of info; I truly appreciate it.

I myself will be 72 shortly and it's hard trying to drag the 15000 around (big smile).

But, I think the Skyline S9 is the answer to my prayers.

Thanks again!

June

June,

I missed you question as I’ve gotten myself into a TV Series that we didn’t get on TV until I found it on Netflix. I watched 4 seasons in one weekend then was starving for more and can’t find Season 5 for “FREE” so I bought the books that is is derived from - I’m hooked - What else can I say - the internet has come second this once.

I have a Skyline S9 and have had an Elna 860 previously (traded because the “foot” wouldn’t lift when I quit sewing - I’m spoiled). I love this machine and have only once had a class where a bigger hoop would have been nice but we managed to flip the design and it worked for that project. As you have a 15000, you’ll never have that issue unless you are not at home with both machines available to you at the same time. The feet are all interchangeable with the exception of the HP series. I don’t think that Janome will upgrade the S9 either as they need to keep something for their TOL machines that folks pay all that extra money for the privilege of having that expensive machine. I could be wrong though on that score as I have no inside information at all - I’m just a Janome fan of 35 years or so.

One thing I do find is that sometimes I forget what machine I’m using and can’t find immediately how to get somewhere. The page down or page over as one example - the concept is the same but just on a different place on the screen. I straighten out pretty quickly though. I’m just glad that I can afford both machines as it is so much easier to take the S9 to a class than the 15000. At the age of 74, it is difficult to lift that machine in a case into the back of my Van or a friend’s SUV and then out when we get where we’re going and then ALL our stuff to sew as well. It would be nice if we could just say, “Beam me up Scottie” and have it all appear where it needs to be.

Have fun with your new machine - I’m sure you will love it.

Yes, we go all the way back to the 5500, which was the first fully computerized Janome. It was sold as the Memory 7.

Would this cover feet for the10001 and 6500 P?
